Mega Ran and Richie Branson drop The Ghouls ‘n Ghosts EP

Spooky Halloween hip-hop

In celebration of Halloween, Phoenix-based rapper Random a.k.a. Mega Ran and Richie “Toonami Is Back Bitches” Branson released the holiday-themed The Ghouls ‘n Ghosts EP. It’s a collection of song collaborations from various albums plus a new track or two, like the titular “Ghouls ‘n Ghosts” that sources that balls-hard Capcom classic.

On tap are tracks based on The Walking Dead and Friday the 13th, as well as “Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis,” inspired by the famous line in Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy.” You’ll also find the Castlevania III-sourced “Dracula’s Curse,” which previously appeared on Ran’s Forever Famicom DLC 2.

I enjoy both these guys’ works — big surprise there — so I find this a pretty lovely surprise for the season. If you’d like to show some love as well, the album can be yours for $6.01. Why the extra penny? I have no f*ckin’ clue.
