*UPDATE* Wiki and RatKing announced today that Wik’s debut album Lil Me is dropping on December 7 for free. Peep the album artwork and tracklist below and watch the “Livin’ with My Moms” video premiere above.
Patrick “Wiki” Morales is one of New York’s hungriest young MCs and the epicenter of the hip-hop soundscape that is RatKing. His solo material outside of RatKing is just as solid, and the visceral “Hate Is Earned” is all the proof we need.
Produced by Detroit beatsmith Black Milk, “Hate Is Earned” finds the pair at their respective grimiest, Wiki barreling through Milk’s lurching sticky beat. He’s showed his dexterity on tracks with Earl Sweatshirt, Remy Banks, and Jamie xx in the past, so that solo mixtape Wiki’s been hinting at can’t come soon enough.
