RATKING might seem like a peculiar name for a rising rap trio, but in this case, the shoe most definitely fits. What moniker could better describe the combo of grimy production and dominating lyricism that is the Manhattanites’ debut Booth feature, Canal? SPORTINGLIFE mans the boards on this freshly-released video single; his chaotic mix of clipped vocal snippets, earth-shaking kick drum and what sounds like sampled crowd noise backs crewmates HAK and WIKI as they flaunt their mic skills in aggressive, tightly-wound verses. If this bruising jam’s piqued your interest, you can click here to cop the group’s So It Goes LP, out now via XL Recordings.
