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?
No man, we're staying in to check out our brand new Sega console
Sega! What's that?
Check this out!

Ya! Master System costs from eighty pounds
One-to-eight colours, three channel sound
Yeah they got more games than fish in the docks
Like Operation Wolf and Psycho Fox
Golden Axe R-Type World Games Chase HQ
World Soccer Baseball Wonderboy II
This list of games goes on and on and on
The Sega posse is over hundred strong

CHORUS: Sega! Sega! Sega!

Yeah man, sounds dope, tell me more
Yeah OK

As well as a console you get a light phaser
With Wild West War, games to amaze ya
3-D glasses will blow your mind
Better peripherals you cannot find
Def joysticks that simply flow
Rapid fire units, bo, bo, bo
Waiting for games to load is Wik-wak
We say
Sega games load straight away


Blow you mind in a Fantasy Zone
Turn to other consoles - got nobody home
Your mutant just ain't a hit
And your grey imports just don't fit
Into any known British TV
So it's obvious to me
Check out your local dealer
Not for drugs
But for Sega

How d'ya spell that G
The hottest, most respected console on the streets today


Yeah we got the Master System in the house
Yeah Boy!
What is this Sega anyway?
Donatello, Raphaelo, grey imports, pizzas - dis 'em boy!
Gis a go, know what I mean?
Mega Drive, buy one today
Oh come on boys, it's party time, man
(Yeah Sega man)
Wot! Gis a go on your joystick!
We're outta here, like last year
Mega Outrun
Do me a favour!

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

" You can buy it.....In shops!"
