23 Rap Songs About Outer Space

Gang Starr "Above The Clouds" (1998)

Album: Moment of Truth
Label: Noo Trybe, Virgin, EMI Records
Producer: DJ Premier, Guru

Guru and Inspectah Deck float over gorgeous Premier production as they school us on the ten percenters, heaven, God, creationism, spirituality, and more while glorifying the realness that exists in the thermosphere. The whole song is a metaphor for existing above the bullshit and being true to yourself. The MCs also explore how humanity couldn't exist without some Great Creator. Lots of divine space talk happening on this quintessential classic.
