Critical Praise:

“‘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

The Video:

With over 8 million total SoundCloud streams at just 19-years-old, Palm Beach, Florida’s wifisfuneral is ready break loose on a national scale. In “Just A Year Ago,” wifi reflects on the abrupt transition from being a high school dropout, to a drug addict overdosing on adderall and cocaine last year, to headlining a national tour this month. The video for “Just A Year Ago,” directed by Nassacre and premiered today byThe Smoking Section, finds wifi stunting in the palm tree-lined streets of his hometown and on a bridge near sight of the glimmering Miami skyline alongside the gruff-voiced Danny Towers who assists wifi with the hook. With hazy keys and booming bass by Henry Daher, “Just A Year Ago” is a solid introduction to wifisfuneral for the uninitiated and a treat for his biggest fans alike.

wifisfuneral’s national Black Heart Revenge Tour commences August 18th in Dallas and continuesuntil reaching Los Angeles in September. Featuring supporting appearances from $ki Mask The Slump God and Danny Towers, the Black Heart Revenge tour is wifisfuneral’s first headlining tour. The Black Heart Revenge tour arrives hot on the heels of Black Heart Revenge, wifisfuneral’s breakthrough project, which charted at #69 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Chart with virtually no promotion, and earned wifi a co-sign from Earl Sweatshirt. Praised by Complex as a “raw brand of turn up music meant to be played at high volumes in his hometown of Palm Beach and beyond,” Black Heart Revenge, which released via wifi’s own label Rich Life Records, marks the beginning of a promising career for Wifisfuneral, featuring tracks like the braggadocious “It Don’t Matter,” which earned over 638,000 plays on Soundcloud, the Yung SVGE-produced anthem “Lights” (463,000 plays), and the dark, street banger “Trap $pot” (362,000 plays). Earlier this month, Mass Appeal premiered the eerie, candlelit video for “Grim,” and VIBE Magazine profiled wifisfuneral in their “NEXT” series. With the Black Heart Revenge Tour, wifisfuneral will look to expand his devoted fanbase and bring his dark sonics and complex lyricism to a national audience.

Wifisfuneral Background

In just one year, nineteen year old South Florida rapper Wifisfuneral has taken his dark sonics, mature-beyond-his-years lyrics, and trunk rattling bass from the streets of Palm Beach to the world, amassing over 8.5 million streams and over 60,000 followers across all platforms. Wifisfuneral’s growth has been organic and cult-like, with his fans spreading his music like wildfire with each and every release. With virtually zero promotion other than his social media presence, Wifisfuneral’s most recent mixtape Black Heart Revenge (May 27th, 2016) reached #69 on the iTunes hip-hop charts despite being available for free.

EMPIRE Background

EMPIRE was founded in 2010 as an artist-friendly, progressive digital distribution company. After early success, and identifying future icons such as Kendrick Lamar, Sage The Gemini, and Rich Homie Quan, EMPIRE was quickly regarded as a tastemaker in the industry and throughout the past five years evolved into a full-fledged record label, distributor and publisher for independent musicians. With the company and roster growing at a breakneck pace, EMPIRE has effectively disrupted a stale business model by bringing its energy, expertise, and acumen to its artists and labels. Given its reputation, EMPIRE works with today’s hottest talent from superstars such as T.I. and red-hot newcomers such as Anderson .Paak. While remaining 100% independent, EMPIRE has also partnered with Atlantic Records for a joint venture, home to breakout star D.R.A.M. and joined forces with Republic Records for the release of Sage The Gemini’s Remember Me album.
