Mega Ran is from Philadelphia and is best known for his love for video games. They even make their way into most of his music. Host Timothy Lawson and Mega Ran get into A LOT of different topics:
- How Mega Ran was introduced to hip hop
- How he became Mega Ran
- His creative process
- Charleston shooting
- Raising a child and being a teacher
- Which video game he wishes he was in
If you put video games, the 80’s, hip-hop, soul music, jazz and standup comedy into a blender and hit “puree,” you’d have something close to The Mega Ran Experience.
Here’s a look at Mega Ran’s answers to the lightning round:
Tim Lawson: Which franchise would you want to be incorporated into if they made a Mega Ran character?
Megan Ran: The ultimate dream would be to be in the Mega Man games. Like if I could pallet swap character, a player two, or a guy who just popped up to help Mega Man. Or even put me in the enemy category, a new foe for Mega Man.
Tim: Which video game character would make a dope rapper?
Mega Ran: Barret Wallace from Final Fantasy 7, because he’s bad ass.
Tim: Which game from your childhood up until PlayStation 2 warrants a remake?
Mega Ran: Parappa the Rapper
Tim: If you could bring any MC on a Mega Ran track who would you want?
Mega Ran: MF Doom
