Megan Ran, Mickey Factz and Alfred Banks bring their unique rhymes and electric performances to Gasa Gasa on December 12th.

Mega Ran:

When LA Weekly said that Ran's “fanbase and niche audiences are growing at a rate

not seen since Tech N9ne,” they meant it. A former teacher, Mega Ran (formerly

Random) blends education, hip-hop and gaming in amazing new ways, penetrating

the farthest reaches of the galaxy with his unique rhyme style and elecric


The frst ever rap artist to be licensed by a major game developer (CAPCOM), Ran

takes the old and makes it new through his unique form of music he calls “Chip-Hop.”

Arguably the world's most well known video-game infuenced performance artist,

Mega Ran's high-energy shows and fun, nerdy persona have led to speaking

engagements, world tours, tons of convention and festival performances, and a

legion of smart fans, patiently awaiting his next move.

Mickey Factz:

There comes a time in every artist’s life when they have to look in the mirror and

decide whether their art should be a hobby or a way of life. When it came time for

Bronx native Mickey Factz to decide what his art meant to him, he chose music,

abandoning a spot at NYU Law School to embrace hip-hop full time.

In 2010, Factz signed a major record label deal with Battery Records, a subsidiary of

Jive Records and released his critically acclaimed mixtape I’m Better Than You.

Following the release of I’m Better Than You, he released his single For The Culture

which features Marsha Ambrosius, Love.Lust.Lost and Mickey MauSe. Mickey MauSe

received rave reviews and the project has been hailed by many to be a visual and

lyrical masterpiece.

Following the success of Mickey MauSe, Factz had the opportunity to be the opening

act for long-time friend Lupe Fiasco on the rappers Tetsuo and Youth Preview Tour.

After the tour, Mickey took a brief hiatus from the entertainment industry. He

resurfaced in 2014 with the release of $4.14 and followed with the mixtapes 740 Park

Avenue, Love. Lust. Lost 2 and Y-3.

After years of prepping, Factz released his debut album, The Achievement, in 2016 to

rave reviews. The project was solely produced by super-producer Nottz and peaked at

No. 9 on iTunes Hip Hop charts. He returned to the road in 2018, touring with West

Coast rapper Blu and Lupe Fiasco. In 2019, Factz plans to release two new projects,

an EP titled Enigma and his sophomore album titled One Above All.

Mickey Factz is the true embodiment of artistry. In addition to his solo work, Factz has

worked with some of the most influential artists in music, including Drake, B.o.B., The

Cool Kids, Travis McCoy, and Hip-Hop pioneers like Afrika Bambaataa. His body of

work stands as homage to the culture while awash in today’s spirit of innovation.

He is The Achievement.
