23 Rap Songs About Outer Space

Monsta Island Czars "MIC Line" (2003)

Album: Escape from Monsta Island!
Label: Metal Face Records, Rhymesayers Entertainment
Producer: King Geedorah

The Monsta Island Czars collective included, most notably, MF Grimm and MF Doom, and every member took on the name of a Godzilla monster. MF Doom chose the King Geedorah (spelled Ghidra in the early days) moniker. Named after the three-headed, flying dragon from space King Ghidorah, King Ghidra/Geedorah was a three-headed, flying dragon from space. So even when he's not rapping about the nebulae he's still very much outer space, because his raps are coming from the point-of-view of a three-headed, flying dragon from space.

We're not sure why King Ghidra would need a 9mm when he can shoot lightning out of his mouth but perhaps that's simply beyond our comprehension. There is something intoxicating about MF Doom singing off key, like an unplugged Young Thug in desperate need of a neti pot.
