Ratking unveils single from upcoming full length "So It Goes"

Ratking unveils single from upcoming full length "So It Goes"

NYC Hip Hop act Ratking - highlighted in the 2012 edition of our Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists - mold their smooth yet in-your-face rhymes together with skill. Their take on experimental hip-hop takes its own form, kind of kicking it old school like the piercing jabs of KRS-One mixed with Death Grips. One of their first marks on the scene was a team effort track with Eric Copeland of Black Dice back in November for Converse's Rubber Tracks. In preparation for the release of their debut album, titled 'So It Goes' (which will include a collaboration with King Krule), the band just dropped a pretty tight new single. Listen to their new, infectious track titled “Canal” below. – Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)
