The messiah of East-Coast Hip-Hop has landed in a neighborhood of Upper West Side, Manhattan, and comes in the form of 18-year-old gutter kid Wiki. Whilst Odd Future have exuded an MTV flex, bursting with trendy snapbacks, Supreme rags and skateboards on the West Side of America, New York has become a platform for left-field Harlemites Azealia Banks and Asap Rocky to hold down the concrete jungle, until now. Wiki a.k.a. Patrick Morales (along with recently featured rapper Joey Badda$$) is bringing back the dusty rawkess Hip-Hop of the 90s, full with New York sewer-style attitude. Wiki released his debut EP 1993 in October 2011 but only since visuals were added to lead track Wikispeaks has the world started to take notice. The 1993 EP was on his Bandcamp until late, but that has mysteriously disappeared now. We won’t speculate on why just yet but keep your eyes peeled for big things, and take a look below.
