Random a/k/a Mega Ran: New Music; Tips And Tricks

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!

MP3: Casual - "Sushi" Ft. Mr. Town


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Casual - "Sushi" Ft. Mr. Town

Next week, on May 22nd, Hieroglyphics rapper Casual will release his latest album, He Still Think He Raw. The album, which will be released through Hiero Imperium, is produced entirely by DJ Fresh & The Whole Shabang, and today, following a string of previous video and single leaks, Casual is excited to release a brand new track from the album, "Sushi" featuring Mr. Town.

"This song was inspired by the production," says Casual, pointing out the beat's loose, heavy drums and slickly chopped sample. "DJ Fresh's beat did it all." Atop that beat, Casual, with the help of Mr. Town, unwinds a series of stroies, each one a sly, salacious tale. "I sip wine, with this chick of mine/ When I see a little fine mama, with a behind on her," raps Casual. "See, mama didn't know that I was sushi/ 'Till she seen other baby trying to seduce me/ No she's choosing/ And I'm her top pick/ That's what she get/ For thinking she was hot shit."
