Wiki of Ratking
Patrick 'Wiki' Morales is a disciplined student of the cypher. Growing up in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, he credits his lyrical muscle to his grade school days where he learned to rap/write with friends at lunch and math teachers alike. In 2011, Wiki formed RatKing with current members MC HAK and Sporting Life. The trio are responsible for producing some of the most forward thinking tracks in today's hip hop world right from Sporting Life's apartment. This superior DIY aesthetic caught the eyes of major and independent labels alike, releasing 2 full lengths and an EP on labels such as HXC, XL, and Letter Racer. Wiki's solo album, Lil' Me debuts December 8 on The Famous Letter Racer and includes a heavy hitting guest list with appearances by Skepta, Harry Fraud, and Madlib.
Reef The Lost Cauze
Reef The Lost Cauze
Reef the Lost Cauze is the pen name for Philadelphia's own Sharif Lacey. Reef has been a firmly planted staple in the underground hip hop scene since the late 90's. Living up to the definition of a true emcee, Reef has won more battles than a five star general in the freestyle circuits of New York, Philly, and anywhere in between. His unrelenting work ethic has graced the public with 5 LPs and countless mixtapes since 2001. Reef's hunger for the mic hasn't diminished after all these years as he can still be heard belting out well sculpted bars in your favorite venues across Philadelphia.
Mic Stew
Mic Stew
Mic Stewart is an American rapper/recording artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In his early years he quickly became known as one of Philly’s premier freestylers by open mic’ing and cyphering all over the city’s dense musical landscape. By 2010 he had cultivated a buzz that landed him on stage with touring acts Big KRIT, Questlove, Black Thought, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and more. All of his groundwork as a local wordsmith culminated in him being selected for the national Red Bull Emsee freestyle competition in 2011–he bested MCs from Philly and went on to win the national Red Bull Emsee title in Atlanta in 2012, a victory that landed him in the studio with now-heavyweight producer duo THC (of Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, and A$AP Rocky fame).

Determined to assert himself as a songwriter and recording artist, Mic Stew followed his national success with a series of independent releases. PEACEWORLD (2013), The Big L Mixtape (2014), the white label single All Black Chucks (2015), and his latest EP Higher Purpose (2015), all of which received critical acclaim and national digital Distribution deals via Soulspazm Records.

Stewart is currently writing and recording his second full length LP, tentatively untitled, with his sight set on finding representation, touring, and major label partnership.
