Premiere: Wiki Gets Cinematic With New Video for “Wik Da God”
The track is taken from Wiki's recently released album ‘Half God,’ which features production from Navy Blue and an Earl Sweatshirt guest feature.
Fresh off the release of his Navy Blue-produced album Half God earlier this month, Wiki has shared the official video for the track “Wik Da God.”
“I’m really proud of this record and this video,” Wiki tells Complex of his latest Half God video, produced by Wikset Enterprise. “This song and video says it the best. Brought to you by the Enterprise—wouldn’t want it any other way. Shout-out Nick Briggs for directing, Grayson for shooting it, and Navy Blue for producing this record! More coming soon. Ears, Eyes and Minds open!”

Released at the top of the month by way of Wiki’s own label and produced solely by Navy Blue, Half God sees Wiki linking up with Earl Sweatshirt and Remy Banks, among others. Following a rooftop album release show earlier this month, Wiki is set to bring the Half God experience to the Knockdown Center in Queens on Nov. 7.
Last summer, Wiki was among the artists who spoke with Pigeons & Planes about the unique experience of first emerging on the scene as a teenager and the present-day social media pressures that come with being a public figure.
“I started rapping in 2011, before social media really kicked off,” he said at the time. “But that’s all changed. I feel the pressure [is there] for them to use Instagram and other kinds of social media to stay relevant. It’s like you have to be a part of this thing to maintain a career, which sucks as an underground artist. That shouldn’t be the norm.”
