Surfacing as an update on his Twitter page, Random, also known as Mega Ran,Â has just released a video for his single â€œOne Winged Angelâ€. As a featured performer at the upcoming nerd festival Nerdapalooza in Orlando, Florida, Mega Ran has received significant attention as a distinguished rapper and producer. Incorporating masterfully executed lyrics that blends beautifully with visceral beats produced by Storyville, â€œOne Winged Angelâ€ is a powerful retelling of Sephirothâ€™s origin story and his following subsequent rage that threatens to destroy the world. Part of Mega Ranâ€™s highly acclaimed Black Materia: Final Fantasy VII, â€œOne Winged Angelâ€ shows that Mega Ran can still appeal to a broader audience outside of the video game community through his own visceral rhymes that literally knock you off your seat.
