Ten years in the making, Black Materia: The Remake is a hip-hop tribute to Final Fantasy VII.


Black Materia: The Remake is a double-disc album, pressed on heavy-weight splattered black vinyl, enclosed in a gatefold jacket. This released contains exclusive artwork and masters created specifically for the vinyl release.

Featuring twenty-five guest producers and rappers, Black Materia: The Remake takes listeners on a hip hop journey through Final Fantasy VII. The role-playing game centers on a group of heroic revolutionaries fighting to bring down Shinra, an energy company that’s destroying the planet for profit.

Black Materia: The Remake retells the video game’s acclaimed story through narrative lyricism and powerful performances. The beats and backing tracks feature memorable moments from Nobuo Uematsu’s acclaimed Final Fantasy VII score.

For Mega Ran, Black Materia: The Remake is the culmination of a more than decade-long career-making hip-hop tributes to video games. Following the viral success of his original Black Materia album in 2011, Ran left his job as a middle school teacher to pursue music full time.
