Ratking was a New York underground hip hop group, comprised of rappers Wiki, Hak and producer Sporting Life. This is their debut album and what it essentially is, is a lighter version of industrial rap mixed with elements of trap and quite a few dope ideas. Wiki and Hak are on their A game, describing New York in gritty detail. Sporting Life though deserves a lot of credit, the beats here feel experimental, noisy but at the same time smooth. In the end it all came together very well. Shouts to the features too: King Krule and Princess Nokia bring extra energy.
Favourite Tracks: Eat, Canal, Snow Beach, Puerto Rican Judo, So It Goes.
