The Sega Mastermix 90
By Damien McFerran - 17 Jan, 2006
On the front of issue 2 of Mean Machines there was a free tape. Not just any old tape, but the Sega Mastermix 90! What is this amazing thing I hear you cry? Well, it was a promotion run by Sega Europe's distributors, Virgin. They decided to run a competition where Sega owners were asked to come up with their own 'rap' song, the winner being given the chance to record their effort in a proper studio. MCs 'Nick & Steve' (with names like that you know they mean business) were the eventual winners, and their 'Do me a Favour' song is what made it on the front cover of the magazine.
The lyrics are as follows (text in italics is spoken)
Yo! Nick and Steve, you coming out tonight?
Ya! Master System costs from eighty pounds
CHORUS: Sega! Sega! Sega!
Yeah man, sounds dope, tell me more
As well as a console you get a light phaser
Blow you mind in a Fantasy Zone
How d'ya spell that G
Yeah we got the Master System in the house

I remember the other side of the tape too, any chance of posting the MP3 of that?
