Pusha T :: Fear of God

Pusha T

Random: New Merch and a New Contest. Save 10%.

From Random a/k/a Mega Ran:

New Merch and a New Contest. Save 10%.

what up fams, just got back from a great road trip, we hit Austin and Chicago for some amazing shows... Man, I don't know where to begin, but Chicago, as usual, was amazing.... and not just the food.

I had a blast at C2E2, and picked up some new comics for cheap.... well new to me.

for the second time, myself and K-Murdock presented our panel on video games and hip-hop to a packed house...

Jon Ireson of the HipHopGamerShow was nice enough to post up a very thorough review of the panel, peep that here.

Thank you all for showing up.

I'm back with some new news! I was putting together merch for the show and decided that it was time for a change... so with the news of a RIVER CITY RANSOM 2 GAME (!!)

coming out, i whipped up these cool River City Random black tees then i figured, what better place to put new merch than in a new MERCH STORE!

click here to enter the new Mega Ran merch store.

BONUS! save 10% on any order right now with code MEGABUCKS

that includes on BLACK MATERIA CDs! 

click to cop... don't forget the MEGABUCKS.

But something's missing... I need a new logo..some new designs for tees... so if anyone out there is interested in designing a new Random logo, a T-Shirt design, something funny, something clever, whatever, let us know and send in the design ideas. it could be simple or complex...

hit me up here with ideas, Photoshop heads.

Also, I'm thinking of making a BIG move in the future and i'll need your help with it... so stay tuned.

Also, I'm glad to tell you that we're making great progress with the commissions for our Kickstarter campaign, and although its taken a while, it's almost over!

so I have to ask: due to the success of "Black Materia," I can't lie, I'm thinking sequel for 2012 or beyond... of course after a few other projects I have in mind. question is, would YOU like to suggest ideas and get involved in the creative process? let me know.

Aight, gotta go, report cards to do. Peace.
