Friday Playlist: Alien She

A mix by the rap collective Barf Troop.

An alien girl finds herself on an unknown planet and begins her long journey home, but she’s not sure what home is anymore. It’s an existential crisis of the third kind—one that calls for songs of exploration, fear, and excitement, presented by the all-girl rap group Barf Troop.
