  • 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.

you can hear the cry of the planet, even scientist cant understand it
we all at a disadvantage impossible to manage
so called experts is callin it a hoax
so its time for the networks to take a new approach
greenhouse gases, natural disasters
unexplained phenomena, time to wake up outta the
mind state, that we cant change things
the world is changing, how many times we gotta see the same things
*hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions
we need more action and less discussions,
and less corruption, before we all goners
somebody inform us, that the earth's tryna warn us
but we worried bout the trivial, superstars interviews
millionaires drama, people whats gotten into you
temperature is risin like the CO2 levels
sooner or later we'll expose the true devils
but for now..

you can hear the cry of the planet

yesterday a young mom threw her baby in the garbage,
and a bomb exploded in an Afghani market
and who you think the target is, the same one who started this
war on a people who didn't even have a part in this
terrorism's mental now, they aint gotta strike
red yellow, orange, burnt sienna, its a lotta hype
politicians spend millions to keep they cushy gigs
while single moms miss meals just to feed they kids
in the land of opportunity bring your poor, tred, your huddled masses
just not to my community
we appreciate your help building the house,
but soon as it's done fam, I gotta kick you out
that dont even make sense to me, but you can check the history
its written that a man will die for his own iniquity
and there will be a day when we rise,
but that wont be until we open our eyes and recognize the lies

protesters wit picket signs object to these wicked times
while brothers is kickin lines about cars and hittin dimes
cuz they know to get in line, work until quittin time
stand up and fix ya spine, you outta your frickin mind?
put minutes on your phone instead of minutes in their lives
till we pay the ultimate price, then ask God why
by the pursuit of gettin more, when that's America's credo
legal or illegal or you less than a zero
all the drama we got, is wasting time on the clock
came a long way since i used to rhyme on the block
learned if you value knowledge then, you free your mind to follow it
a lot of it is confidence, not what you can get out of it
turn the Tell Lie vision off and dig up a jewel
sharpen your mind so it remains the most powerful tool
at your disposal I'm hopeful, but cautious at the very same moment
cause i know everybody has to face their atonement


from Black Materia: Final Fantasy VII, released January 31, 2011
Produced by Lost Perception. Samples "You Can Hear The Cry of the Planet."
