OOFIE showcases Wiki’s dexterity and skill as one of NYC’s greatest wordsmiths and curators, enlisting features from Denzel Curry, Princess Nokia, Lil Ugly Mane, Your Old Droog, Duendita, Lansky Jones (of Worlds Fair),and members of the Onyx Collective.
Born and bred in NYC, a teenage Wiki (Patrick Morales) quickly rose to fame as one third of pioneering hip-hop group Ratking. The trio signing to XL Records, landed the cover of The FADER, and released the NYC-focused classic, So It Goes, which was recently included in Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the Decade. Wiki, the frontman of the group, went on to release solo mixtapes, 700 Fill and Lil’ Me, before dropping his fully fledged debut solo album, No Mountains In Manhattan, in September 2017 – a staunch return to form which sees him collaborate on beats with some familiar names – Tony Seltzer, Sporting Life, Lil Ugly Mane, Roofeeo – and some new ones – Jonti and Micachu amongst others.
Throughout 2018 and 2019, Wiki toured internationally – hitting Australia, Japan, Russia and much of the US and Europe – and released several standalone singles; ‘In The Park‘ featuring Gloss Gang, ‘Elixir‘ featuring Jesse James & Obongjayar, ‘Cheat Code‘, and – via his recently formed new label, Wikset Enterprise – the Madlib produced ‘Eggs‘, as well as the double single, ‘Fee Fi Fo Fum‘ and ‘Smarty Jones‘ featuring Cleo Reed.
