MEGA RAN Memoir Dream Master Now Available

Raheem “MEGA RAN” Jarbo pens personal journey from teacher to videogame rapper to hero in part-self help, part educational testimony memoir

Raheem “MEGA RAN” Jarbo is pleased to present Dream Master, the highly anticipated rapper’s memoir over five years in the making. It details how hip-hop, education, and videogames kept a young MEGA RAN on the straight and narrow, but also gave him the courage to make his own mark in the videogame and nerdcore scenes.
Part self-help manual and part educational testimony, Dream Master takes readers on a gripping journey through his travels as a latchkey kid in Philadelphia to a lone standout in Phoenix, including finding himself through inspirations from Bo Jackson to the late MF Doom. Dream Master is intimate, gut-wrenching, humorous, and most of all, hopeful. Reflecting on the 40 years leading up to his improbable Guinness World Record certification in 2018, MEGA RAN revisits historical flashpoints such as Jesse Jackson’s presidential run, the controversial MOVE bombing in Philadelphia, and the horrific events of September 11, 2001 through a young man’s eyes who is determined to change his environment for the better. This painstakingly-written memoir capture Raheem’s hopes, dreams, and extraordinary milestones, and serves up an inspirational story that readers in any line of work and from any corner of the world can enjoy and learn from.
“This is literally the story of my life– all my triumphs and tragedies,” notes Raheem. “My main goal is to hopefully inspire the next great mind out there to do something great.”
Dream Master is available on Amazon, Shop at Matter, and Author House worldwide as well as select local retailers in Phoenix, Houston, and Philadelphia.


About Raheem “MEGA RAN” Jarbo
Random, aka Mega Ran, aka RandomBeats… Teacher, Rapper, Hero. Guinness World Record Holder.
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 middle school 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 electric performances.
Ran cut his teeth in the city of Philadelphia as a moonlighting emcee and producer, performing, freestyle rapping, producing and later engineering at a studio. After relocating to Phoenix, competing in the Scribble Jam emcee battle championships and taking an early exit, Ran almost quit before he was even started, when a creative lightning bolt struck, and a fire was lit.
Ran’s music and story have been shared on stages across the world, on television (ABC/NBC News, ESPN, Portlandia, Tosh.O, WWE Wrestling) and on Billboard, where four of his albums have placed in the Top 2000 His most recent release is the critically acclaimed album “2 Hands Up,” a collaboration with Young RJ of the group Slum Village.
Today, Mega Ran is no longer a teacher by title, but maintains a rigorous touring and recording schedule, traveling the world to entertain and educate through the gift of rhyme.
