Single: wifisfuneral – “Run It Up” ft. Smokepurpp (prod. by Cris Dinero)
XXL Premieres the South Florida Phenom’s Latest Cerebral Banger
“20-year-old Wifi isn’t just an exceptional rapper from a technical standpoint, he also writes songs that leave listeners feeling some type of way.” – Mass Appeal
“‘It Don’t Matter’ puts Wifisfuneral over a raucous, Robb Bank$-produced beat, with keys straight out of a science fiction film. He raps about women, drugs, being fearless, and most importantly, ignoring people who talk too much. Never get too wrapped up in the naysayers and the time wasters; they’ll never help you be great. The song is visceral, it gets to point, and it should be played as loudly as possible.” – NOISEY
“Wifisfuneral is one of the emerging underground champions who is proving he can play to packed venues across North America and dominate the online world.” – HYPETRAK
Winning a sizable cult of personality with his cerebral charm, the introverted wifisfuneral embodies a quieter, more intelligent strain of the South Florida rap renaissance. Reveling in his newfound wealth, the 20-year-old shares “Run It Up,” a hazy, boastful banger. Recruiting Alamo labelmate and fellow Floridian Smokepurpp for a croaky, ad-lib-heavy verse, wifi takes the opportunity to flex and revel in the life of a young rich rapper: “I think it’s safe to say that I’m the shit.” Produced by Cris Dinero and premiered by XXL, “Run It Up” is another winner in a quality run of loose singles, following the 808 Mafia-produced, Pigeons & Planes-premiered “2 Step,” the Yung Trunks-assisted “Right Back,” and the Twitter-promoted, million-times streamed “wya?”
One of the more quietly successful artists in a burgeoning South Florida rap scene that also includes Kodak Black, XXXTentacion, and Ski Mask the Slump God, wifisfuneral mobilized his rabid cult following to make his latest album When Hell Falls debut at #17 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Chart. Carrying his momentum into SXSW, wifisfuneral performed seven showcases during a five day span and became the first artist to land a record deal at SXSW when he signed with Todd Moscowitz‘s newest venture, Alamo Records/Interscope. Most recently, wifisfuneral performed at Rolling Loud festival in Miami and finished a European tour opening for popular Taiwanese rapper Keith Ape. wifisfuneral first gained notoriety with his 2016 mixtape Black Heart Revenge. Charting at #69 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart with little promotion, the album led to last summer’s Black Heart Revenge Tour, wifi’s first headlining national tour.
