#Trending Topics Mixtape [Presented by Mick Boogie/DJBooth]

Though the filthy rich can currently enjoy an outer-space vacation for the low, low price of 20 to 30 million dollars, it’s likely going to be a very long time before we’re all zooming through the cosmos in our own personal Spaceships. But there’s nothing wrong with daydreaming about the possibility, right? On the first official leak off her forthcoming, Mick Boogie/DJBooth.net-presented #Trending Topics mixtape, RAtheMC does just that, using the fantasy of leaving this Earth behind as a metaphor for lofty ambitions, musical or otherwise. In a lilting, measured flow somewhat different from her usual, hard-hitting rhyme style, the femcee encourages all those unhappy on the nine-to-five grind to “fly away” and pursue their dreams. Frequent production collaborator JUDAH backs RA’s stellar message with some appropriately out-of-this-world boardwork, blending downtempo percussion, heavy bass and ambient samples to ominous effect – the headliner’s soulfully hollow sung hook adds to the eerie feel. If this insightful, unconventionally dope track leaves you intrigued, download a copy of #Trending Topics when it hits our front page next Tuesday, Oct. 6.
