On The Road: RATKING



As one of XL Recordings’ newest signings, New York City rap collective RATKING, led by emcee Wiki, joins the likes of Radiohead, Adele, and Tyler, The Creator on the venerated label. Their debut release, Wiki93, captures the group’s hardcore energy, amidst densely structured sample-based beats and stream-of-conscious rhymes.

In this episode of On The Road, Life+Times links up with the band at their Brooklyn studio for a couple of impromptu cyphers, before traveling with the group to a late-summer gallery performance in Chelsea, New York.
