Black Materia: Final Fantasy VII is a rap album by Random (aka Mega Ran) and Lost Perception telling the story of Final Fantasy VII and using remixed selections from the game's soundtrack as instrumental backing. Half of the words of the opening track are lifted directly from Marlene's prologue in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, re-recorded by Marlos Hill. The album also features other guest "Videogame-themes-with-lyrics" performers brentalfloss, Marlos Hill, Storyville & the Thoughtcriminals, The Ranger, Dale Chase, MC Pennywise, Devastate, Phil Harmonic, Ilyas, and Maja.

In 2012, a version with tracks "remixed, remastered and re-imagined" was released on the one-year anniversary of the original.

In 2016, a two-disc vinyl pressing with tracks remixed and remastered by R23X was released, limited to 1000 copies. A limited version of 175 copies on white vinyl was also pressed.

In 2021, a remake of the original album was produced and released on major streaming platforms. A two-disc color splatter vinyl version was later produced following a successful crowdfunding campaign. It was pressed on two color splatter vinyl records.
