Wiki is a man of his city, truly New York to the bone.
Following the release of his acclaimed debut project, No Mountains In Manhattan, a tour of the five boroughs in sound and diet, the 24-year-old MC is back with “Ballin on the Low.”
“Ballin on the Low” is one of two bonus tracks found on the vinyl release of the album and is a crash course in Wiki’s artistic range. He packs all of the variety and charisma of No Mountains in Manhattan into the track, opening with his unmistakable and grainy croon, the conviction in his delivery palpable.
Leaning into his wiry and cutting cadence, Wiki raps about getting girls and doing laundry, proving that no amount of success will ever stop him from being a man of the people. Frequent collaborator (and fellow Secret Circle member) Antwon adds a tight guest verse.
“What a fucking year,” Wik spits. We agree.
