wifisfuneral Broods in Black & White in “All Bones”

The South Florida Native Shares a Visually Striking Clip for the Introspective EV3RYTHING SUCKS EP Intro

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 Video:

wifisfuneral specializes in rap for dark nights of the soul, crafting songs that unflinchingly confront his inner demons. Working through his trauma with deep introspection, wifi shares All Bones,” his new music video. Produced by wifi’s frequent collaborator GRiMM Doza, “All Bones” is a single-verse rumination on addiction, grief, and loneliness, as wifi struggles to overcome his negative urges: “My thoughts insane and too violent/And they said I can’t hate myself/But I still fuckin’ hate myself and I ain’t fuckin’ lyin’/Hold up, I’m slowly dyin’, ain’t no need for no cryin’.” Filmed in stark black-and-white, the video finds wifi retreating to desolate park, with only brick columns for company, the camera capturing his every shadow. “All Bones” is the introductory track from EV3RYTHING SUCKS, wifi’s December 2019 EP.

A 7-track collection of cerebral rap gems, wifi continues the Ethernet series with EV3RYTHING SUCKS. The follow-up to 2018’s standout Ethernet Vol. 1 mixtape and last summer’s Ethernet 2 EPEV3RYTHING SUCKS (abbreviated to E3) is home to several quality video singles, including the YBN Nahmir-featuring Peace Sign,” last week’s Ratchet Roach-featuring It’s A Bird! It’s A Plane!,” the colorful Split,” and the symbolic What You Made Me.” Featuring production from NVBEEL, GRiMM Doza, and Cxdy (of Internet Money), E3 is available everywhere via Alamo Records.

E3 finished off a busy year for wifi, marked by two headlining tours, three projects, and numerous collaborations with up-and-coming rappers. In June, wifi dropped Ethernet 2, an emotionally bare examination of his fraught mental state, with bright sonics that bely the heavy subject matter powering singles like “run?” (5.3 million Spotify streams). At the top of the year, wifi teamed up with Robb Bank$ for Conn3t3d, an 11-track collab project that fueled a nationwide tour. Most recently, wifi hopped on Beretta,” an anthem by rising Florida rhymer $not, which racked up over 8 million combined streams on SoundCloud and Spotify. Earlier this month, wifi teamed up with veteran rock band Buckcherry to update their 2006 hit “Crazy B*tch.
