Listen to SUBCON 21: Discussing 'official video game rap'

The only podcast dedicated to video games & hip hop. 

On this week's episode I tackle the touchy topic of officially licensed video game rap. The kind of rap that gets the okay from multiple corporate heads as well as several composers and sound designers. I also bump the latest mashups from Nintendo inspired artists Toon Link and Lemmy Koopa, including the Parappa X Wale mashup pictured with this episode.

Mega Ran lays down 'the album of his life' with self titled album 'RNDM'

"An E-tank's worth of hip hop" 

It's been a while since I tackled music by Random, but the man throws down rhymes at such a prolific rate that my reviews wouldn't even be over be edited before another album drops. No excuses though, Random is definitely at the top of the VG rap hill. Think of him as the Super Mario in that heroes screen from DKC2.

Random's rise to indie rap stardom (that has to be an oxymoron) has been prolific, which is why I felt safe in covering lesser known artists during Random's epic run and endless tours. With the semi-self titled latest though, I had to come back and talk about an artist I've been covering since 2007. 

They say you can’t go forward without going back. So to move to the future, Mega Ran had to go back to the beginning to say thank you, then to say goodbye. Ran’s 2015 full length album channels the soul of “The Call,” the nostalgia of “Forever Famicom” and blasts into the future with new age production and concepts, while exploring the concept of finding one’s true self through deep soul searching and experimentation.

Mega Ran calls this “the album of my life.” Hip Hop, pop, electronica and funk/soul meet at the crossroads of introspective, hilarious and heartwarming songs featuring outstanding artists such as Kool Keith, Open Mike Eagle, MURS, Joell Ortiz and more.

Also featured on the album is “Mighty,” an empowering track that serves as the ending credits theme on the highly anticipated game “Mighty No. 9.”

Watch The Kirby's Avalanche Challenge ep 01: featuring music by Urban Flow

I begin the long journey towards becoming a puyo master while jamming to Urban Flow's latest album, Melodic Bumps 4. The album gets cut a bit short due to some technical difficulties, but I plan for this series to continue so long as there is new music to bump! So be prepared for the bass, and the puyo blobs to drop.
