You have to trust me

RATKING may not be all that popular but they are good. Odd and experimental, their music can really pull you in. I've seen them live opening for Run The Jewels and they were great.

Incredible

Amazing album! If you like Death Grips, Clipping. or anything odd and experimental, you should LOVE this.

Death Knell

If Control heralded the death of regionalism in Hip-hop, So It Goes is the nails in the coffin. Unlike Long. Live. A$AP, Ratking’s debut is natural and sincere in what it does with styles foreign to the Big Apple. The beats themselves are a melding of timeless boom-bap with Chicagoland footwork and British grime production. Wiki and Hak even use a faux-Cockney inflection and Grime flow patterns.

About RATKING

Ratking are a wild hip-hop collective out of New York who came on the scene in 2012. Members Patrick "Wiki" Morales, MC Hak, and Sporting Life were mostly in their late teens in 2011 as chaotic hip-hop tracks credited to Wiki started being issued from their Harlem base. These bedroom laptop productions came from Sporting Life's apartment and went straight to video-sharing sites, where a slow but steady group of fans enjoyed the grimy, compressed productions and Hak and Wiki's strange cut-up rhymes. The group began gigging around N.Y.C. in 2012 with an intense live show and soon signed to the XL Records imprint Hot Charity. Their debut EP for the label, Wiki93, landed in November of 2012. Their debut album, So It Goes, landed in 2014 with guest shots from King Krule, Wavy Spice, and Solomon Faye. Their sophomore effort, 700 Fill, followed in 2015 with guest appearances from Despot, Remy Banks, and Princess Nokia, but this time out, the album was given away free on the file-sharing service BitTorrent. In June 2016, Hak announced his departure from the group, which would continue as a duo. ~ David Jeffries
