Raheem Jarbo, AKA Mega Ran, is famous in multiple circles as a rap artist, a video game enthusiast, and even a teacher. He even holds the Guinness World Record for “most video game-related songs by a single person.” But his life has taken some crazy twists on the path to fame. Now you can read all about his fascinating life story in Dream Master, the new memoir out this week from Scarlet Moon.
The book takes you through Mega Ran’s early days as a latchkey kid in Philadelphia, to his move to Phoenix, to his teaching career, to his dabblings in rap that sent his life on a whole new path. Multiple historical events are seen through his eyes along the way, such as Jesse Jackson’s presidential run, the controversial MOVE bombing in Philadelphia, and the aftermath of 9/11. Scarlet Moon calls Dream Master “part-self-help manual and part educational testimony.”
“This is literally the story of my life– all my triumphs and tragedies,” says Raheem. “My main goal is to hopefully inspire the next great mind out there to do something great.”
Dream Master is the result of five years’ worth of work, and you can find it today on Amazon, Shop at Matter, and Author House worldwide. Select retailers in Phoenix, Houston, and Philadelphia will also carry the book in their physical stores.

Projects like Disney’s Treasure Planet, or FX’s Y The Last Man (just cancelled after one season and ten years of development). Sony’s
The Tomb Raider series turns 25 years old this fall, and Square has…pretty much nothing planned in celebration. As a substitute, they’re showing off video games we DIDN’T get..like Tomb Raider Ascension, a survival horror game planned by Crystal Dynamics in the early 2010s. A survival horror Tomb Raider? It’s
There’s now more than one way to play the dungeon-crawling RPG Gloomhaven. Originally born as a tabletop RPG, it soft-launched in video game form on Steam Early Access two years ago. Since then publisher Asmodee Digital and developer Flaming Fowl Studios have been building up its content, and as of
