Arizona via Philadelphia emcee Random first gained national attention with his 2007 release Mega Ran, a musical nod to the Mega Man videogame series. The album was so successful in the nerdcore community that it landed him a licensing agreement with a videogame company as well as exposure in mainstream national press. Random still uses the alias Mega Ran to this day, despite the fact that his lyrics are too stylistically diverse to be defined as strictly nerdcore. Case in point: "I came to fix the game like Dick Bavetta." A former teacher, Random is just as likely to reference Kafka or spit a bar about Simon & Schuster and Random House as he is videogames. He's certainly the only rapper I know with the commendable distinction of having a percentage of sales from his latest release, River City Random, benefiting an anti-bullying organization.
