Since it dropped in April, we've been big fans of Ratking's album So It Goes. You'll recall, we even said it has "redefined NYC hip-hop" and we certainly, after many more listens over these last few months, stick by that. To our minds, it's a frontrunner for NYC album of the year, as well as one of the most impressive hip-hop albums we've heard in a long while. Now, the Ratking three -- Wiki, Hak, and Sporting Life -- have dropped the video for the moody title track, So It Goes, and have announced the dates of their big tour with El-P and Killer Mike's Run the Jewels. Both are after the jump. See also: Ratking Redefine NYC Hip-Hop on New Album So It Goes
