Phoenix via Philadelphia rapper and video game enthusiest Mega Ran has shared the official music video for “Flight 2.0” today. The cut comes on the heels of last week’s “Live 95 (Basketball Diaries)” music video, which premiered HERE via KUTX.
“Flight” is all about my obsession and love/hate relationship with sneakers and sneaker culture, which started way back when I was a teen. Dope shoes are so synonymous with hip hop, so we had a fun time stepping into the world of sneaker retail thanks to the good folks at Guest List, one of the best sneaker spots on the west. – Mega Ran
Currently on tour with MC Lars, MC Frontalot and Schaffer the Darkloard, Mega Ran’s new album Live 95 arrives this Friday. The LP delivers top-flight 90’s-styled lyricism, words of wisdom from Hall-Of-Fame level former NBA players, and features from world-renowned MCs Del The Funky Homosapien, Mickey Factz, Czarface and even the legendary 2Pac’s proteges, The Outlawz.
