Wiki has become a fixture of the scene when he founded the boundary-defying group RATKING, whose aggressive style represented a new generation of city kids and artists, hungry for innovation and raw energy. RATKING’s breakout single was called ‘Canal’ named after the iconic, bustling Chinatown street. Coming of age in the neighbourhood, living there for years while creating his solo albums, inevitably laced his music with the culture that permeates the singularly New York, Chinese neighbourhood. His song ‘Chinatown Swing’ off his first LP No Mountains in Manhattan paints a picture of walking through the streets and the feelings and sites one encounters. When painting lyrical pictures of New York scenes one gets a sense of Wiki’s skill as a storyteller and visionary, alongside appearances on tracks with Skepta, Madlib, King Krule, Earl Sweatshirt, Run The Jewels, Blood Orange, Princess Nokia, A$AP Ferg, ZelooperZ and many more. Today, Wiki carries the torch for NYC’s master MCs; representing the freaks, weirdos and underbelly culture.
