Mega Ran
Mega Ran
Simply put Mega Ran is the world’s foreknown link between hip-hop and video game culture. When LA Weekly called Ran a “Rapper That Will Be Big” they weren’t lying. Ran went on to drop an album that charted in the Billboard 200, ranked on college radio charts for over 20 weeks, and was named Rapper of the Year by the Phoenix New Times. The first hip-hop act to be licensed by a major game developer, the ‘Teacher/Rapper/Hero’ releases top-charting albums, world tours, television, radio and video game placements at a blazing rate, while many consider Mega Ran as a trailblazer within the “nerdcore” genre. Between tours, he also hosts a wrestling podcast “Mat Mania.”
Sammus
Sammus
SAMMUS (Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo) is an Ithaca-raised, Philadelphia-based rap artist, producer, and PhD student in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University. Known as much for her rousing stage presence as she is for her prowess as a beatmaker and lyricist, Sammus has spent the past several years cultivating a strong following of activists, hip hop heads, punks, and self-identified nerds and geeks, among others. As noted by the Los Angeles Times, Sammus “has a gift for getting a message across.” Having recently made her Don Giovanni debut (while remaining tied to NuBlack Music Group), she is poised to cement herself as an artist who consistently thinks outside boxes and dances across lines (and does other neat things with geometrical figures).

In addition to managing a full-time music career, Enongo has spent the past eight years as a public-school and college level educator. After graduating from Cornell University in 2008 with a double BA in Sociology and Science & Technology Studies, she was accepted into the national teaching program Teach for America and placed in Houston Texas, where she taught elementary math and science between 2008 to 2010. In the fall semester of 2011 she returned to Cornell as a PhD candidate to pursue an interest a wide array of sound studies topics, including sound and gaming as well as the identity politics of community studios. As an academic in training and very-vocal feminist, Enongo has produced articles for publications such as Bitch, For Harriet, Sounding Out!, and The Mary Sue related to issues of race, hip-hop, gaming, and feminism.

The level of fame that he’s garnered with over 21 million YouTube views has stemmed from rapping about his favorite video game, anime, TV shows, and movies intertwined with heavy electronic music. His music has traveled from Zelda to Star Wars, Eminem to Linkin Park, Skrillex to Flux Pavilion, and politics to love over dubstep, trap, metal and other dynamic genres. NLJ’s lyrics and high energy is always complemented with music that inspires and hypes every listener.

NLJ is taking over the internet with his music and EDM productions that anyone can dance and rock out to.



According to FreshNewTracks, “he isn’t your average rapper. None Like Joshua comes in with a style like Mike Shinoda’s, but dreams further than the stars rapping over some of the hottest beats.” He’s also released a rap metal/nerdcore album, L33T, with the French band, Smash Hit Combo, which reached #1 on iTunes metal for France.
