New York rapper Wiki has locked in two New Zealand shows next month - and if you're quick they'll cost you just $5 each.

The rapper, from the group Ratking who released his solo debut last year to critical acclaim, will perform at Auckland's Kings Arms on February 2, and at Wellington's Meow on February 3.

He'll be playing on the back of No Mountains in Manhatten, his solo debut which was called "an acidic and vivid manifestation of his city, at times surreal and too real" in a review that scored 8.1 out of 10.

Wiki's one of a number of rappers who've graced New Zealand over the last month, including Joey Bada$$, Danny Brown and Vince Staples.
