Ratking - New York Hip-Hop Trio
Posted by Lee Goldup on August 21, 2015
New York Hip-Hop trio Ratking return to UK next weekend for a handful of gigs, including a small show at Hackney's Oslo near our store. In anticipation for the intimate gig we thought we'd post a few of their videos.
Described perfectly in an interview with the Guardian last year: They're based in New York, but their sound is from Nowhere, The World. There are elements of east coast hip-hop, early Detroit techno, Cali punk rock, London stoner folk and Olympic basketball commentary. Ostensibly a hip-hop group – they number two MCs, Wiki and Hak, and a producer, Sporting Life or Sport – they have as much in common with hardcore punks Trash Talk as they do with Kendrick Lamar.
