Raheem Jarbo, aka Mega Ran, aka Random, is one of the more noted video game musicians out there. For his latest album, though, he went a little further than just rapping about video games.


With financial help from fans, he's been able to put together a concept album that includes not just the music, but accompanying comic and video game material as well, all centred on his partly-autobiographical idea of a man who is a teacher, rapper and hero.

The album, Language Arts: Volume One, isn't bad! And while I haven't read the graphic novel, I have played the game, which for a guy called Mega Ran is unsurprisingly based heavily on Mega Man. It's pretty good!


Language Arts: Volume One is the first in a series of three planned releases based on the idea. You can check out more info below.
