The XXL Freshman Appeases His Hungry Fans’ Need For More Music with this Dark and Lyrical 4-Tracker

11.7.2018

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

“He’s synthesized the regionless, borderless world of the internet age from which he takes his name, while lacing it with a narcotically addictive flow and a distinct ear for melody that’s allowed him to develop while others stagnate.” – NOISEY

“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 EP:

Developing a massive and eager grassroots cult who responds to his grounded lyricism, wifisfuneral is an unconventional rap star. Faced with fans clamoring for more music after he dropped his popular Ethernet Vol. 1 mixtape earlier this year, wifi shares the Leave Me The Fuck Alone EP. A dark and absorbing collection of four standout tracks, Leave Me The Fuck Alone finds wifi deep into his mental state and unflinchingly reporting what he sees. Wallowing in rich and aqueous sonic worlds created by producers like frequent collaborators Cris Dinero and HenryDaher, the new EP finds wifi mourning lost friends on “Alone as a Facetat,” indulging his pill habit and experimenting with auto-tune in the bouncy “Dangerous,” and flexing his lyrical muscles in “Pain”: “Listen, I was lost a lot/Trapped in hell with no parking spot/No pot to piss, they watched me rot/I was rottin’ in my grave, I thought/But it was back to reality, it kept me soft.” Last week, wifi shared “Ever Seen a Demon,” a bleak and unsettling banger from the EP that amassed over 300K streams in its first week of release after being included on Apple Music’s Breaking Hip-Hop playlist. Featuring an appearance from beta.files and additional production TNO, Leave Me The Fuck Alone EP is available to stream on wifi’s SoundCloud and on all other DSPs.

Earlier this year, XXL named wifisfuneral to their 2018 Freshman List, marking a major milestone in his rise from grassroots support on SoundCloud to major mainstream recognition. The Florida rapper’s XXL Freshman Freestyle reached #1 on YouTube’s trending chart and his XXL Freshman Cypher, in which he traded verses with YBN Nahmir and Stefflon Don, racked up over 6 million views.

In June, wifisfuneral shared Ethernet Vol. 1his most accomplished project to date, which has over 40 million streams on Spotify alone. 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 16 million streams on Spotify, and “LilSkiesFuneral,” which features breakout rapper Lil Skies and racked up over 8.8 million streams on Spotify and 5.41 million plays on SoundCloud. With additional appearances from Brooklyn riser Jay Critch and ATL mainstay Key!Ethernet arrives via Alamo Records.
