The “teacher/rapper/heroMega Ran is returning to the UK for his fourth time, but this time on a twofold mission.

The artist formerly known as Random is performing at least 4 shows throughout the United Kingdom, and he is also recording for his next solo album, tentatively titled “RNDM.”

Meanwhile, we listened to Mega Ran’s “Artillery Remix” feat. MC Esoteric, REKS, Reef the Lost Cauze.

The wonderful piano capers down an alley-way — then the earthy vocal steps to the plate.

The production on this is magnificent — and the pace is delectable.

Bring on those soul veggies…
