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.
