NYC Hip Hop not to miss: Harlem's Ratking

NYC Hip Hop not to miss: Harlem's Ratking

If you don't like rappers who rap better than you then Ratking might rub you the wrong way. MF Doom-reminiscent production gives an ethereal beatscape to frame the staccato street blather MCs Wiki and Hak procure. There's a good deal of angst, but only as much as you'd expect from three cats from Harlem. It's like Wu-Tang and Camp-Lo's conjoined rapchild; abrasive but not inaccurate assessments of the Harlem day-to-day with a good dose of Krylon-fumed dementia. - BrokeMC
