  • Black Materia : The Remake 2LP SIGNED
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Ten years in the making, Black Materia: The Remake is a hip-hop tribute to Final Fantasy VII.

    Black Materia: The Remake is a double-disc album, pressed on heavy-weight splattered black vinyl, enclosed in a gatefold jacket. This released contains exclusive artwork and masters created specifically for the vinyl release.

    Featuring twenty-five guest producers and rappers, Black Materia: The Remake takes listeners on a hip hop journey through Final Fantasy VII. The role-playing game centers on a group of heroic revolutionaries fighting to bring down Shinra, an energy company that’s destroying the planet for profit.

    Black Materia: The Remake retells the video game’s acclaimed story through narrative lyricism and powerful performances. The beats and backing tracks feature memorable moments from Nobuo Uematsu’s acclaimed Final Fantasy VII score.

    For Mega Ran, Black Materia: The Remake is the culmination of a more than decade-long career-making hip-hop tributes to video games. Following the viral success of his original Black Materia album in 2011, Ran left his job as a middle school teacher to pursue music full time.

We the Knights of the Round, fight till you down
let off infinite rounds, a frightening sound
enemy skill, we gettin this gil
traveled the land protected by an energy shield
random encounters with lifeforms i never seen
me and my 4 part team, materia in my jeans
Aerith's gone and and i sorely miss her
a part of me wishes I had gone and died with her
but her people knew the secret and hid it
kept the black materia where sephiroth wouldnt get it.
my minds playin tricks and im walkin a thin line
knowin i could lose control at any time
so traveling close to me isnt advised
i can't be responsible for any more lives
north crater, better sooner than later
meet me at the center of the earth and say a prayer


Sometimes you gotta pick sides
the future of all mankind is the prize

the end result is the birth of a God


Ay yo Its time to leave midgar and go meet the team
Avalanche in full effect call me mr valentine
Fast trigger when im bustin never had to use a summon
So im commin for u hojo u bettr start running
Yo im down for cause keep it moving never stall
If united we are standing then divided we fall
The gold saucer was a trap snuk out the back
I Fell a hundred feet to the ground guns still intact
I need an airship life shoutin
Lookin for the ancient city checkin thru the map
Sephiroth on our path so therso no turning back
genetically enhanced so i think i gotta chance
New spell level up strong weapon in my hand
Shinra must collapse if we wanna survive
A daily dose of hi-potion it keeps me alive, yeah



my thoughts-drift, walk-swift, see this path-is-designed
to taking passionate-strides with the planet-in-mind
the trail's-vast, sail-fast, 'nail-bat'-at-my-side
so i can battle-these-tribes of assassins-and-spies
for each glance-at-the-sky there's a woe-to-tell
or a SOLDIER-dwells to make sure you hope-is-quelled
like us, there's those-compelled to crush the hateful-cowards
who take-their-power, from mako-showers and Jenova-cells
It's hard-to-see but 'harmony' is the mission at hand
to reap-what-you-can and be at peace-with-the-land
a pipe-dream, it might-seem, but a reason-to-stand
to fight-greed of Shinra and preserve the life-stream
each breath-that-i-take is for our legacy's-sake
each 'stride' is filled with 'pride' when your end-is-at-stake
so we'll strengthen-our-chase to an excellent-pace
To get-the-boss 'sephiroth' before the WEAPONs awake
