The Palm Beach County Native Tries to Clear His Mind on His Latest Loosie
“[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
Applying his technical rapping expertise to songs about addiction and mental health, wifisfuneral has lived through multiple lifetimes of adversity in his 22 years. Throwing his hands up in response to life’s senseless brutality, wifi shares “idk,” his latest single. Created with the help of wifi’s frequent collaborator Cris Dinero, who creates a hyperactive beat to match the track’s paranoid energy, “idk” is a furious and frenzied rundown of wifi’s recent troubles. Wielding a dexterous double-time flow, the Alamo Records signee lashes out at those giving him trouble: “When it’s war, we don’t stop/We gon’ come for your kin.”
“idk” is wifi’s first new song since the release of EV3RYTHING SUCKS, wifi’s December 2019 EP. A 7-track collection of cerebral rap gems, EV3RYTHING SUCKS is the third installment in the Ethernet series, following 2018’s standout Ethernet Vol. 1 mixtape and last summer’s Ethernet 2 EP. is home to several quality video singles, including the YBN Nahmir-featuring “Peace Sign,” the Ratchet Roach co-starring “It’s A Bird! It’s A Plane!,” the colorful “Split,” the symbolic “What You Made Me,” and the ruminative, single-verse “All Bones.” Featuring production from NVBEEL, GRiMM Doza, and Cxdy (of Internet Money), E3 is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
Earlier this year, wifi teamed up with veteran rock band Buckcherry to update their 2006 hit “Crazy B*tch,” and “Beretta,” his collaboration with rising Florida rhymer $not, racked up over 7 million streams on Spotify.
