EP: wifisfuneral – Ethernet 2

The Cerebral Palm Beach County Native Follows-Up Last Year’s Successful Mixtape with a Summer-y Seven-Track Project

6.28.2019

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

The EP:

Always upfront about his mental demons and struggles with addiction, wifisfuneral’s instrumentals have often matched his lyrical mood–dark, brooding, and cavernous. Letting a bit of sunshine into his music without shying away from the cerebral honesty his fans expect, wifi shares Ethernet 2, his new EP. Though there are still two clattering, bass-heavy bangers on the EP–in the form of previously released singles No Trust” and “30 For 30“–but much of the tape embraces a brighter sound, reverberating with twinkling synths, chiming bells, and liquid keys. The follow-up to 2018’s Ethernet Vol. One mixtape, which racked up over 60 million streams on Spotify alone, Ethernet 2 expands upon the themes of alienation and addiction that defined the first volume, but with a few more tricks up his sleeve, showing off his unexplored melodic ability on “wya pt. 2” and rocking stream-of-consciousness ad-libs on “i really hate pills.” Also featuring the spritely single eggs” and the manic “run?, which peaked at #3 on SoundCloud’s New & Hot ChartEthernet 2 EP is available everywhere via Alamo/Interscope.

As an added surprise, the 22-year old rapper shares “Something,” a SoundCloud-only bonus track. Produced by Foreign Teck, “Something” is a high-energy trap song, highlighted by wifi’s auto-tuned hook.

Ethernet 2 arrives ahead of wifi’s Free Weef Tour, a headlining national tour spanning this summer. Presented by The Living Dead, the tour starts on July 11th in Seattle, passes through Los Angeles on July 18th (Los Globos) and Brooklyn on August 1st (Kingsland), before wrapping up with four hometown shows in Florida from August 8th-11th. With supporting performances from Camp Yola and #2Stoned, the “Free Weef Tour” is wifi’s second national tour of the year, following the “Conn3t3d Tour” with Robb Bank$. Last week, wifisfuneral paid tribute to his late friend XXXTentacion with Alone As A Facetat,” a video for a track from his late 2018 Leave Me The F*ck Alone EP.
