Patrick ‘Wiki’ Morales, Puerto Rican-Irish New York rapper and Ratking collective member.
Using the lessons of his efforts with Ratking, Wiki took on independence within Lil Me, his 2015 mixtape. Tackling issues of life on the road, coming of age in Manhattan, first loves, bad blood, and all the emotional reckoning in between the two extremes.
Bringing on board old friends - producer Alex Epton, Sporting Life, King Krule - and experimenting with some new ones too - Skepta, Kaytranada, Black Mack - Wiki stepped out and up on Lil Me, turning to himself to be the protagonist of his first solo effort.
In 2015 Wiki retreated to XL Recordings downtown Manhattan studio to start work on his first, official album No Mountains In Manhattan. During the year and a half process, Wiki worked with past contributors and the team naturally around him, to focus on creating a new sound for his beloved city. In the process, Wiki called upon three generations of New York MCs in Ghostface Killa, Your Old Droog, Slicky Boy and ACAB, and collaborated with Tony Seltzer, KAYTRANADA, Sporting Life, Earl Sweatshirt, Alex Epton and others to provide a variety of sounds that speak to the chaotic atmosphere of the city itself.
