With cerebral lyrics and an unbreakable flow, wifisfuneral is a leading figure in the meteoric South Florida rap scene. Cresting on a wave of well-received singles, wifi shares Ethernet, his latest mixtape. An immersive experience equally suited for top-down rides as headphone sessions, Ethernet brings you deep inside the mind of wifisfuneral, as he struggles with his newfound fame, plunges into drug use, and revels in his prodigious talent. Boasting production from wifi’s longtime collaborator Cris Dinero, as well as speaker-knocking instrumentals from the likes of Jahlil Beats, Ronny J, Smash David, and others, Ethernet Vol. 1 is wifi’s most diverse project yet, ranging from minor-key Rhodes burbles on “Every Pill In The World,” to pinging, minimalist trap on “Been 2 Hell & Back,” to New Orleans-style bounce on the recent YBN Nahmir-featuring single “Juveniles,” which has over 4 million streams and 2.6 million video views in the two weeks since its release. The mixtape also boasts the syrupified single “Genesis,” which has over 2 million combined streams, the paranoid “25 Lighters,” which recently copped a verse from Curren$y on the remix, and “LilSkiesFuneral,” which features breakout rapper Lil Skies and racked up over 4.58 million streams on Spotify and 4 million plays on SoundCloud. With additional appearances from Brooklyn riser Jay Critch and ATL mainstay Key!, Ethernet arrive
Born in Palm Beach County, Florida, the 21-year-old wifisfuneral experienced a dramatic rise in his late teens, building a sizable following on SoundCloud.

Earlier this year, wifi hopped on a remix to Comethazine’s DJ Mustard-produced “Sticks,” a couple of collaborations with Robb Bank$, and shared Last Time Doing Drugs, a joint EP with wifi’s longtime producer Cris Dinero, which features an appearance from Craig Xen.
