NYC rap crew Ratking announce debut album So It Goes – hear 'Canal'

Manhattan’s young turks plot full-length.

Following a tour with Death Grips and last November’s lauded Wiki93 EP, rap provocateurs Ratking have announced their debut album, So It Goes, on XL offshoot Hot Charity.

The record is out on April 8, and in the meantime you can stream the ferocious, Public Enemy-flavoured album track ‘Canal’ below.

Only last week Ratking spoke to FACT’s John Calvert about working with Jay-Z’s engineer and trying to transform their no wave influences into avant-garde hip-hop.
