The Album, Game, and Comic Project - Language Arts
What happens when an artist makes a huge splash doing one project, but wants to expand beyond that with his future works? Will fans of his previous work dig the new? Will they expect more of the same, when the very heart of a musician is to explore their abilities by trying new styles? These are some of the questions Raheem Jarbo, aka Random, has faced since he released the immensely popular Mega Ran – a hip hop take on the classic Mega Man series. Since then Jarbo has gone on to release an amazing catalog of music – some related to games, some not. Be that as it may, and to quote the MC himself, his fans always clamor for “more gamer rap”.
Jarbo’s solution? Combine his love for teaching, comics, music, and games into an innovative, multimedia project called Language Arts. With such a wide body of influences, the project has something for everyone. The first album has dropped already, but there’s plenty more content on the way including a comic book, a game, and even more music. Fans of the original Mega Ran can rest easy though, there’s an expanded, remastered version coming out later this year to celebrate the album’s fifth anniversary.
Random will join us this Wednesday the 27th at 7PM Eastern to discuss his music, his upcoming tour, and whatever you guys want to hear about. Want to know his favorite Transformer? Want to request a song for when he comes to your town? Want a short freestyle rap about why Michael Bay is an idiot for trying to touch TMNT? Ok, well maybe not that last one – but still, be sure to join us in the chatroom right at 7PM for your chance to ask. Get your questions ready, and spread the word! This is going to be awesome.
Welcome back, everyone and me! I was suddenly beset by a week of tragedies and victories, none of which I care to talk about at the moment, so instead we’re going to talk about an exciting soundtrack that’s NOT from Japan and not even composed by a lady! Let’s talk about Magician on the NES: [...]
We have for you another request night in which the chatroom crowd will request songs of their choice from the topic that is presented to them. Tonights topic – Video Game Music – The Bands. This is always a popular topic as we get a ton of requests and normally not enough to to fulfill them all.
Enjoy as you will here bands such as Amanda Lepre, MegaRan, The One-Ups, Beefy, The Grammar Club, Year 200x, Duane and Brando and many many more…
