Biography

RATKING’s music is best understood as neither reenactment nor recreation, but reaction.

To what, one might ask?

Well, a clip from any one of their frenetic live shows provides an immediate answer: you hear the fallout of a bloated and self satisfied hip hop, the nihilist refrain of dead end punk and the prickly reach for connection that befits their noise and experimental influences. Left with the various remaining bits of all these traditions and the bum-rush scramble of modern life, RATKING are creating a new reality in every moment, just like every other inhabitant of New York City.

While Sporting Life and Ramon weave a teeming Big Apple backdrop, Wiki and Hak act not only as our mischievous tour guides but dual ends of our own conscious: one sharp witted, vulnerable and seemingly anti-social, the other feral, poetic and almost philosophical. Call it ‘no wave’ rap. Call it ‘no school’ hip hop. Call it RATKING.

    Saw them open on the Run The Jewels 2 tour and felt obligated to check them out. Great performance. It shows in their music that they're very young, but I like where they're headed.

    I didn't like PRJ at first myself either but it grew on me. The female rapper made it a bit corny imo but really it's a cute song when you think about it.
