The Alamo/Interscope Signee Responds to Recent Events With Two Bite-Sized Examples of His Rhyming Mastery
“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
South Florida phenom wifisfuneral is barely 20-years-old and has built a substantial following on SoundCloud, but he separates himself from many new school rappers with his old-fashioned ability to craft tongue-twisting, clever lyrics. Earlier this week, a video of an incident at wifi’s concert on June 1st which left the rapper bruised up but defiant reached the desk of Joe Budden on Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” web series. After clowning on his name and laughing at his misfortune, wifi responded with a pointed tweet and with a new track posted on his SoundCloud last night: “JoeBuddenProbablyThinksICantRap 🙁.” Produced with RZA-esque verve by Curtis Heron, wifisfuneral kicks off his verse mocking mumble rappers and emcees who abuse the “aye” flow before tightening his focus into a verse so hard that even Old Man Budden had to tweet his respect. As an added bonus, wifi shared “lil jeff hardy >:-),” a reference to the rope-jumping, pile-driving WWE star and a rebuttal to his critics about his stage-diving incident from last week. Together, the two tracks paint a picture of a slyly self-aware young artist with enough talent to turn potential career hiccups into bite-sized bangers.
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. Since signing with Alamo, wifisfuneral unleashed a barrage of high quality loose singles, including “Run It Up,” which features an appearance from wifi’s labelmate Smokepurpp, the 808 Mafia-produced, Pigeons & Planes-premiered “2 Step,” the Yung Trunks-assisted “Right Back,” and the Twitter-promoted, 1.38 million-times streamed “wya?.” After performing at Rolling Loud festival in Miami and finishing a European tour opening for popular Taiwanese rapper Keith Ape, fans can catch wifi on the Revenge Tour, headlined by XXXTentacion and featuring fellow Members Only rappers Ski Mask the Slump God and Craig Xen.
