EP: wifisfuneral – EV3RYTHING SUCKS
The Alamo Records Signee Delivers a Cerebral 7-Track, Shares the Colorful Video for EP Highlight “Split”
“[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
Rhyming with wit and clarity about his struggles with fame and addiction, Florida rapper wifisfuneral pours his soul into his music. Continuing his story with the latest volume in the Ethernet series, wifi drops EV3RYTHING SUCKS, a new EP. The follow-up to 2018’s standout Ethernet Vol. 1 mixtape and last summer’s Ethernet 2 EP, EV3RYTHING SUCKS (abbreviated to E3) finds the Palm Beach County rapper alternating flex-heavy anthems like recent single “Peace Sign” or “It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane!”, with reflective tracks like EP intro “All Bones.” On EP highlight “What You Made Me,” wifi displays a facility with auto-tuned melody, his candy-coated melodies providing a stark contrast with his bleak worldview. Featuring production from NVBEEL, GRiMM Doza, and Cxdy (of Internet Money), and guest appearances from YBN Nahmir and Rachet Roach, E3 arrives on December 18th via Alamo Records.
To accompany the EP, wifi shares “Split,” a new music video. Produced by $K & VSN, “Split” finds wifi riding a melodic cadence, stressing his unique lane in the rap game: “I play for keeps, ain’t for the weak, I’m on my own shit.” In the video, wifi raps in front of a series of colorful backdrops, showcasing his quiet charisma.
E3 caps off a busy year for wifi, marked by two headlining tours, three projects, and numerous collaborations with up-and-coming rappers. In June, wifi dropped Ethernet 2, an emotionally bare examination of his fraught mental state, with bright sonics that bely the heavy subject matter powering singles like “run?” (5.3 million Spotify streams). At the top of the year, wifi teamed up with Robb Bank$ for Conn3t3d, an 11-track collab project that fueled a nationwide tour. Most recently, wifi hopped on “Baretta,” an anthem by rising Floridian $not, which racked up over 6 million combined streams on SoundCloud and Spotify.
