Mega Ran | Stranger Things Part 1 | Video


Mega Ran pays tribute to this year’s Netflix phenomenon ‘Stranger Things’ with an eerie song and eerie video.

Like most of us Philly rapper Mega Ran binged the Netflix original series ‘Stranger Things’. The eight part series set in 1984 follows mysterious happenings in small town America. With more than a hint of Steven Spielberg’s influence crossed with John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ three friends and a runaway girl try to track down their missing friend from the ‘upside down’.

Drawing on the RPG ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ for inspiration the sci-fi/thriller/horror has been a phenomenal success and has now been greenlit for a well deserved second season.

With a video that debuted over at The A.V. Club, Mega Ran pays tribute to the show with a beat that samples the eighties influenced theme music and a video that borrows in tone from the show. See ‘Ran under interrogation.

The track is only available to download by supporting Mega Ran’s Patreon.

About Mega Ran | 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.
