Andrew Yang released a rap video to drum up support for his New York City mayoral bid Thursday — featuring rhymes about his failed presidential campaign, COVID-19 and how it’s “dope” to be an Asian candidate.

In the music video, hip hop artist MC Jin is shown rapping a tune dubbed “Yang for New York” as the 46-year-old pol elbow-bumps passers-by and visits Big Apple hotspots.

“Yang for New York/ Yang for New York/ We gonna do the right thing for New York,” the tune begins.

“An Asian candidate — that’s dope / I won’t even lie/ As far as my support though/ that ain’t even why/The war on normal people / Opened up my eyes.”

It continues, “Everyone — white, brown, yellow and black/ It’s time to come together, what’s ironic is that/ NY forward will bring New York Back.”

The video opens on Jin — who also wrote several tunes about Yang during his failed presidential bid — trying to sell a homemade CD on a Big Apple street before launching into lyrics boosting Yang’s policies such as “COVID relief” and a “basic income program.”

In the 3-minute video, Yang chats with New Yorkers and visits the Brooklyn Bridge, a food cart and pizza joint.

The tune also touches on Yang’s failed 2020 presidential run — proclaiming, “He made the most sense during the race/ probably why they cut his mic off at the debates.”
