Loud and Quiet

The composition of the tracks give way to rhythmic peaks and flows, and while there isn’t a story as such, the narrative sense of journey makes this record as much literature as it is music.


Wiki’s new album No Mountains in Manhattan is a vivid manifestation of the city, at times surreal and too real.

With a terrific but inconsistent run in Ratking and then a focused debut album, Wiki's follow up to Lil Me is his best work yet. His style is classic East Coast hip hop with his own flavor sprinkled on top, showing plenty of charisma in his lyrics and daring choices of beats.

Ratking yeah he do it nicee woah! I mean I never understood why Wiki couldn't just conjure a coherent album in all his manifestations and while this album isn't that perfect statement, Its a great indication of all that he is, and should definitely have greater acclaim when you look at his contemporaries (he's 24).
this feels like reading a book, also very overlooked project
New York's Wiki, moving well past the name of Ratking, is proving that he is the main artery that pumps the life force into the heart of his city. The story telling feels so real and well animated, writing songs about the occurrences throughout his days. Wiki maintains a poetic service to those scouting for something fresh and vibrant among the trap heavy wasteland in hip hop currently.
