When Random announced that the Mega Ran journey was ending with Mega Ran 10, I was more than little disheartened. Oh, sure, I'm still following and enjoying his other projects, but like many, I was introduced to his music through the original Mega Ran album. It's sad to see an artist move on, but it's gotta happen.
Of course, that doesn't mean he can't cut the sporadic Mega Man-inspired single now and then, right? Yesterday, Ran dropped "Awakening," a pay-whatever track which samples the ending theme from Mega Man Zero 2. If memory serves me, this is his third Zero rap, and it's always great to hear people show love to the phenomenal music of the Zero series.
As Random seeks to grow as an artist, I can only wish him the best. He knows who his fans are and won't leave them in the dark forever. I await his next album, whatever it may be, and hope it'll turn heads just as much as his older material.
