What's This?

Ratking‘s phenomenally talented MC WIKI dropped a very, very great album called Lil Me earlier today, and it’s available for free download here. The 17-track LP features production from long-time Ratking collaborator Sporting Life, MadlibDJ Lucas, Kaytranada, Micachu, Lee Banon, and Black Noi$e as well as guest appearances by bandmate Hak, Skepta, Jesse James Solomon, Jadasea, Antwon, and Teddy AF. WIKI finds his stride in these songs, exploring new sounds and styles to compliment his rhythmic agility and lyrical wit. Much of the anger and urgency of Ratking’s acclaimed So It Goes album is lost here, but in its absence is a striking integrity for playfulness and experimentalism: Less fire, more vibes. In many ways, Lil Me plays as a positive, more exploratory counterpoint to the brooding, jazz-infused grime of Earl Sweatshirt‘s I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside (which WIKI featured on), mostly on tracks like “Sun Showers,” “3 Stories,” and “Cherry Tree.” Stream Lil Me below and watch the music video for the LP’s second track “Livin’ with My Moms” below.
