The only way to waste your afternoon today is by playing Wiki’s video game

Where you jump on the cops instead of mushrooms

This is perfect time, actually.

On the same day that we’ve posted our Albums of 2017, which features Wiki‘s ‘No Mountains In Manhattan’ in our top 10, the New York rapper has released it in physical formats for the first time – you can now get it on vinyl and (get this) CD.

That’s something to be happy about, for sure, but there’ll be plenty of time to enjoy listening to this brilliant, old school hip-hop debut in these real life formats later.

Right now, for instant gratification, you can play Wiki’s new video game at wikset.nyc. The whole thing is a callback to Super Mario, only the object is to get Wiki downtown to his show, and instead of flattening mushrooms in the process, you stomp on cops and cigarette cartons, and collect four leaf clovers.

I am unbelievably shit at it.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
