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.
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
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.
