With more than a decade of professional video game inspired music-making behind him, Teacher/Rapper/Hero Mega Ran was able to not just weather and survive the Covid-19 pandemic, but the celebrated rapper was able to actually thrive in it. When March 2020 forced an unprecedented career pivot from focusing on live shows and recorded music, to focus on digital content and fan interaction Mega Ran seamlessly transformed his style to adapt to the times.

From his wildly successful run with his own web show Random House Studios to the monthly online only 4 Eyed Horsemen Specials, to releasing his first book, and doubling down on his podcast "Random Encounters" while getting partnered on Twitch as an interactive video game music DJ and content creator, Mega Ran has spent the pandemic innovating his approach while keeping an eye on the horizon for his opportunity to get back in front of his diehard fans all of the world.
