Wiki and Your Old Droog Release Surprise 'What Happened To Fire?' EP
While the world waits for another Ratking project to make its way to the masses, the respective parts are out here doing work. The group’s producer, Sporting Life, dropped off a new installment in his Slam Dunk series late last year and gritty bar specialist, Wiki, has quietly and confidently launched one of the most compelling solo campaigns in hip-hop, cementing him as one of the generation’s most wickedly talented emcees with a string of quest appearances and a criminally overlooked solo debut, featuring production from Kaytranada, Madlib and more.
Next phase in Wiki’s takeover: forging a collaborative project with another razor-sharp NYC wordsmith in Your Old Droog. It may seem like a long-shot, but with the surprise release of their joint EP, What Happened To Fire?, the pair of Big Apple MCs make a damn-good case for being the city’s next great hip-hop duo. But don’t take our word for it. Hear the new EP (for free ninety-nine) down below and if you happen to be The Republic of Brooklyn tomorrow night, grab a ticket to see Wiki perform with special guests at Brooklyn Bazaar in Greenpoint.
