ratking-704The New York rap trio Ratking (Wiki, Hak, & Sporting Life) ran up through the Cosmic Zoo shortly after their Coachella performance. We discussed their excellent new XL album, “So It Goes,” taking inspiration from grime, Big Pun, and Dipset, the Eminem comparisons, Kurt Vonnegut, and how New York factors into their aesthetic.

In addition, Nocando and I discussed the Donald Sterling saga, why rappers are getting seizures all of a sudden, and the XXL Freshmen Cover. Episode below the jump, along with some Ratking videos that you should watch unless you have musophobia.
