RAHEEM “MEGA RAN” JARBO has composed his first videogame soundtrack for the visual novel demo, Incarnō: Everything Is Written (Schnoodle Studio). The critically acclaimed rapper has had his work featured on Tosh.0, TNA Impact!, and Portlandia. He contributed “Mighty (Mighty No. 9)” and “Welcome to Monaco” to the Mighty No. 9 and Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine soundtracks, respectively. However, this is the first time he has been solely responsible for an entire soundtrack’s themes, aesthetics, and overall sound.
Nerdcore rapper Mega Ran spent the better part of 2020 composing tracks with a chillhop and lo-fi vibe. Included are three songs with his iconic lyrical style. These will be released as singles later in 2021. The sound and overall atmosphere Mega Ran has produced are foundational to Incarnō’s storytelling. In fact, all music was completed before the script or any art. As a result, the singles even feature as important parts of the gameplay.
Schnoodle Studio’s Creative Director Toiya Kristen Finley had wanted to work with Mega Ran for a while. “He was the right fit because I knew he could capture the vibe of the story and experience. “We talked about the arcs, backstories, and motivations for these characters and several themes we wanted to hit. These themes were mirroring some of the things we were experiencing during the pandemic and that deep, deep desire to see some kind of racial justice over the summer of 2020. You can really hear and feel those themes in the tracks.”
About Mega Ran:
Random, aka Mega Ran, aka RandomBeats… Teacher, Rapper, Hero. Guinness World Record Holder.
When LA Weekly said that Ran’s “fanbase and niche audiences are growing at a rate not seen since Tech N9ne,” they meant it. A former middle school teacher, Mega Ran (formerly Random) blends education, hip-hop, and gaming in amazing new ways, penetrating the farthest reaches of the galaxy with his unique rhyme style and electric performances.
Ran cut his teeth in the city of Philadelphia as a moonlighting emcee and producer, performing, freestyle rapping, producing and later engineering at a studio. After relocating to Phoenix, competing in the Scribble Jam emcee battle championships and taking an early exit, Ran almost quit before he was even started, when a creative lightning bolt struck, and a fire was lit.
Ran’s music and story have been shared on stages across the world, on television (ABC/NBC News, ESPN, Portlandia, Tosh.0, WWE Wrestling) and on Billboard, where four of his albums have placed on the Top 200 list. His musical resume boasts collaborations with legends like Del The Funky Homosapien, MURS, Kool Keith, and Young RJ of the group Slum Village.
Today, Mega Ran is no longer a teacher by title but maintains a rigorous touring and recording schedule, traveling the world to entertain and educate through the gift of rhyme. https://megaran.com/
