Lyricism is not dead. New York's Wiki previously dropped off No Mountains In Manhattan, a smoke-fueled voyage from project alleyways to the finest Chinatown establishments. If you haven't yet checked for that yet call yourself a hip-hop head perhaps you need a revaluation. Lyrically, Wiki is reminiscent of pinnacle underground rap, without the tired backpacking cliches. With a clever penchant for weaving imaginative imagery, the Raking emcee has long strived on the strength of his cult following. Today, he's back with a few bonus tracks, including "Hands Out."
As of now, the pair are exclusively available in select international markets, but that will change shortly. The track finds Wiki going in over a decidedly "modern" beat, which is to say "trap-inspired." Over hypnotic synthesizers, Wiki continues where No Mountains left off, although this one remains a stylistic departure the project. Either way, it's dope, so check it out.
