08.16.2018

Critical Praise:

XXL Freshman, Class of 2018

“[wifisfuneral] displays an impressive array of verbal acrobatics, showing off masterful breath control and a rapid fire flow.”  – Pitchfork

“The young rapper has a wide range of skills, from agile raps and bass-heavy tracks to dark and moody slow-burners, and his unpredictability is part of his appeal” – Pigeons & Planes

“Wifisfuneral is becoming a hotter and hotter commodity in the rap world these days, and he’s making sure to prove his skillset as a lyricist in the game.” – XXL

The Video:

Parlaying a sizable online fanbase into a spot on the 2018 XXL Freshman List, South Florida’s wifisfuneral wins fans with his cerebral lyricism. Presenting a fantastical picture of his daily routine, filled with cough syrup and Xanax, wifisfuneral takes a memorable trip in “Genesis,” his new video. Kicking off the day on his couch, wifi lifts his spirits with some illicit substances before traveling down his ethernet cable into a vibrant digital world, eventually surfacing in a barren desert for the song’s climax. Premiered on NOISEY, “Genesis” is wifi’s first release since his XXL Freshman Freestyle, which reached #1 on YouTube’s trending chart, and his XXL Freshman Cypher, in which he traded verses with YBN Nahmir and Stefflon Don.

An immersive experience equally suited for top-down rides as headphone sessions, Ethernet Vol. 1 brings you deep inside the mind of wifisfuneral, as he struggles with his newfound fame, plunges into drug use, and revels in his prodigious talent. Boasting production from wifi’s longtime collaborator Cris Dinero, as well as speaker-knocking instrumentals from the likes of Jahlil BeatsRonny JSmash David, and others, Ethernet is wifi’s most diverse project yet, ranging from minor-key Rhodes burbles on Every Pill In The World,” featuringUno The Activist, to pinging, minimalist trap on Been 2 Hell & Back,” to New Orleans-bounce on the YBN Nahmir-featuring single Juveniles,” which has over 10 million streams on Spotify alone, and “LilSkiesFuneral,” which features breakout rapper Lil Skies and racked up over 6.8 million streams on Spotify and 4.82 million plays on SoundCloud. With additional appearances from Brooklyn riser Jay Critch and ATL mainstay Key!Ethernet arrives via Alamo Records.
