Wiki Hits the Campaign Trail in His New "Mayor" Video

The New York rapper's debut album 'No Mountains in Manhattan' arrives this Friday.

New York underground vet and former Ratking frontman Wiki has been teasing new material throughout the year, sparking anticipation for his new album. In his latest video for song "Mayor," the rapper rocks an oversized suit and hits the Manhattan streets to shake hands, kiss babies, and drink out of people's beer cans as he campaigns for an imaginary election. Last month, Wiki announced that his debut album, No Mountains in Manhattan, would be released soon but today he revealed that it'll be out this Friday on XL Recordings. Watch the Matt Lubansky-directed video above. There's still time to write Wiki in, too—there's a mayoral election in NYC this Fall.
