  • 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.

lyrics

Last of my kind since my mother she died
My father a coward, tried to hide from the tribe
But I survived in Cosmo Canyon, companions are few
Bugenhagen like a grandfather and I call him that, too
Knew what to do when the Turks came to capture a specimen
Contested them but wasn't gettin the best of them
I saved the day but I was taken away
Tattooed with the numerals that later gave me my name
Prisoner imprisoned in the Shinra HQ
Subjected to experiments by Hojo and his crew
After more than a year, a proud swordsman appeared
He told me he was Cloud and we fought our way out
Back at home, Bugenhagen said some facts should be known
Dad didn't run from the tribe, he attacked 'em alone
Like they turned him to stone, my shame turned into pride
And as I howled at the moon, he cried from petrified eyes
