In 2014, Harlem underground Hip Hop crew RATKING dropped So It Goes, their acclaimed debut release on Thom Yorke’s XL Recordings imprint Hot Charity. Described as “an exhilarating and reckless lyrical portrait of a maybe-vanishing city; part Vonnegut, part Dipset, part Suicide,” the album was featured on COMPLEX Magazine’s list as among the best new albums of 2014. After wrapping a year on the road and their first Australian tour, the group is back with their latest effort 700 Fill.
