Mega Ran | Mackerel Sky ft. RoQy TyRaiD | Official Music Video
Mega Ran's new visual for "Mackerel Sky" is a trippy journey through the music industry's race to keep up with technology through an extended metaphor of the mackerel sky, a cloud formation known to represent instability within a system. Over a pulsating beat by AF THE NAYSAYER, Ran and RoQy weave in and out of complex rhyme schemes and heavily layered messages to expose the unstable nature of the music business as we know it. "Mackerel Sky" is directed by Luis "ElJayBeats" Perez and features fellow Writers Guild crew member RoQy TyRaid. It appears on Mega Ran's chart-topping album "RNDM," which debuted in the Billboard Top 200, and maintains a 15+ week stay on CMJ's Hip Hop charts (only Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp A Butterfly" has remained longer). Directed by El-Jay Beats. Get RNDM on vinyl now! http://hellomerch.com/collections/meg... "Shame that the so called experts look like fools when the market is passing them by...."
