Tips and Tricks... and New Music

Do they still make those giant Tips and Tricks books? Pretty helpful, if you ask me. Anyway, I have some tips for you, but first, new music from myself and my crew. 1) "Language Arts."I used to rap this song to his students on the first day, as a former middle school educator. The track is produced by Richie Branson, who this week exploded with his #BringBackToonami campaign, even landing play on 2 Adult Swim bumpers. Props!
Download the song free here http://soundcloud.com/megaranmusic/random-language-arts Pre-Order the album here http://random.bandcamp.com/album/language-arts-volume-one 2) "Armed." The Writers Guild (Mr. Miranda, MC Pennywise, RoQy TyRaiD, Random, aka Mega Ran) is back, this time tapping the hottest producer in AZ, Kanye West's latest signee to G.O.O.D. Music, Lifted, who shows his versatility as the Guild sets it on wack MCs on "Armed," their new single. Download it free: then FB/tweet these all day! http://writersguild.bandcamp.com/track/armed clean version: http://hu.lk/5t4naw6w8w2j regular version http://hu.lk/dzwc7tnhhf18 The tips. I decided to do my own tips and tricks for the crowd funding resource known as kickstarter. My good friend Kevin at the so much silence blog posted my 5 tips on How To Win At Kickstarter. Peep! http://somuchsilence.com/?p=5864 Thank me later, or just give me a cut of your earnings. Peace! Ran

Mega Ran's Jeremy Lin Rap

THE STORY: I was up late one night and was inspired by young Jeremy's story... a Harvard grad, undrafted, never really given a chance, finally gets in the game and starts wrecking shop. So I wrote this: Jeremy Lin Rap.


Mega Ran's Jeremy Lin Rap - DL at tinyurl.com/JeremyLinRap


then the YouTube video kinda exploded, hitting 200k views in less than a week. Radio spins, ESPN plays...whoa.




Am I officially a one hit wonder?

Mega Ran's wishlist




*I don't NEED anything on this list, but these are some things that I really want, and I wish I could get... yaknow.

listed in order of price, not preference.
*if its deleted, it's because it's been taken care of.. <3 my peeps.

1.


2. Book: Decoded by Jay - Z
(18.88 @ Amazon)
The excerpts I've read are amazing and I've heard nothing by good reviews.

3a. Swatch Mens Watch GN230
($49.99 or less @ Amazon)

my mom always gets me a watch every year, but just once I'd like to get one I'd actually wear... and it's blue..perfect.

3b. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood - Xbox 360
(49.99 used, 59.99 new @ Gamestop)
I've played a little of the AC games and I've enjoyed them a lot.


4. Jordan 11 Cool Grey size 14
(174.99 wherever you can find them)
These shoes first dropped in 2001, and were a big hit... I had just graduated from college then and couldnt get them. I'm nowhere near the sneaker head I was back then, but these are dope.



5. Native Instruments Maschine
(599.99 @ Amazon)

The ultimate beatmaking device. This thing could make me throw away a lot of junk in my studio and still make good stuff. it's an all-in-one, and a beast of a machine.


and there it is....

oh and of course if you want to help out.. :-)
