RATKING's Wiki Runs Amok In NYC In Animated Video For Kaytranada-Produced "3 Stories"
At the tail-end of last year, RATKING‘s stalwart MC, Wiki, dropped what this writer believes to be one 2015’s finest outings in his solo debut, Lil Me. The album featured an absolutely stellar roster of wordsmiths and producer’s alike, including Madlib, Kaytranada, Sporting Life, Antwon and plenty more.
For the NYC-native, it proved to be a watershed moment, ripping through beats from industry heavyweights and putting his uncanny wordplay on full display for those that somehow missed the brooding bars he’s been dropping as the lead man in RATKING. Today, the album’s Kaytra-produced standout “3 Stories” receives an animated visualization that matches the madness of Wiki’s narratives and then some, taking us through the paces of being young, high and assed-out in NYC, just looking for that next buzz. You can watch it all go down in the clip below, just be sure to grab yourself a copy of the album. No excuses, y’all. It’s free! As for Kaytranada, you can catch your boy on the road, the dates for which are listed just below the player.
