If RATKING's collaboration last week with Converse and Eric Copeland entitled “GAUCHOS” let you down like it did us (seriously, how did that pairing produce something that boring), the trio of Hak, Wiki and Sporting Life are rectifying their reputation for realness with “100”.
The single does not come with any updates on the group's upcoming XL debut, but it does serve as a sonic reminder of why it should be one of your most anticipated releases in 2014. Wiki wastes no time on “100” with a tongue-twisting verse addressing any naysayers to his writing acumen, while Hak joins in to with a four bar setup to the refrain that gives the phrase “keep it 100” a second win.
RATKING are staying closer to home for the remainder of 2013 in shows:

23 Brooklyn, NY – Cypher League
