“I just wanna be known simply off my music,” wifisfuneral told XXL. “I’ve built such a cult-following fan base off of just my music. I’m just an underdog. Out of everybody on this whole XXL Freshman list, I’m gonna be the one that people are gonna be like, ‘Why the hell is he on here?’ I promise you. I’m calling it right now.”
