The South Florida Emcee Pays Tribute to His Former Members Only Crewmate XXXTentacion in the Visual for the Leave Me The F*ck Alone EP Highlight
“[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 late XXXTentacion is a controversial and larger-than-life figure in the world of hip-hop, but to wifisfuneral, XXX is something more–one of his oldest friends. Taking the time to mourn his friend and reflect on how far he’s come, wifisfuneral shares “Alone As A Facetat,“ his new music video. A subdued, Henry Daher-produced highlight from the late-2018 Leave Me The F*ck Alone EP, “Alone As A Facetat” is mournful and dark, as wifi reflects on how his friend’s death confirms his already bleak worldview: “Man up in the mirror, face that/Alone as a face tat/They took away my dawg/My heart black, that’s where it stays at.” In the video, wifi sits in a dark room, watching home movies of his heyday with Members Only, contrasting wifi’s carefree past with his more realistic and somber present. The new video follows recent single “run?“, which peaked at #3 on SoundCloud’s New & Hot chart and is currently available to stream on all platforms.
Following up on the momentum from last year’s Ethernet Vol. One mixtape and his placement in XXL’s 2018 Freshman Class, wifisfuneral branched out in the early months of 2019. In January, wifi teamed up with fellow Floridian Robb Bank$ for Conn3ct3d, a riotously fun joint project, and recruited Robb for a national tour. Featuring the single “Can’t Feel My Face,” which has 1.8 million views on its demonic video, Conn3ct3d finds the duo departing from the dark subject matter that defines their solo projects, competitively stacking syllables in a contest over who can stunt the hardest. In March, the 22-year-old rapper shared “No Trust,” a pure evil and bass-heavy loose single, which boasts wifi’s first credit as a producer. Stay tuned for much more from the Palm Beach County native, as he looks to expand his devoted cult of listeners.
