The 19-Year-Old Returns With New Music on His Fans’ Insistence
|“‘It Don’t Matter’ puts Wifisfuneral over a raucous, Robb Bank$-produced beat, with keys straight out of a science fiction film. He raps about women, drugs, being fearless, and most importantly, ignoring people who talk too much. Never get too wrapped up in the naysayers and the time wasters; they’ll never help you be great. The song is visceral, it gets to point, and it should be played as loudly as possible.” – NOISEY|
“Wifisfuneral is one of the emerging underground champions who is proving he can play to packed venues across North America and dominate the online world.” – HYPETRAK
|A deep, visceral wordsmith, 19-year old wifisfuneral is as loyal as he is sagacious. Anxiously questioning the whereabouts of his sweetheart, wifisfuneral professes “never could I love you like no other” on “wya?” The first single to follow When Hell Falls, wifi’s latest album, which peaked at #17 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart, “wya?” was dropped at the request of wifi’s Twitter followers when he asked them to “Tweet #wya if u want a new song.” “wya?” finds wifisfuneral expressing the duality of romanticism and paranoia, leaving and returning, grappling with newfound success over a milky turn-up chorus of a Cian P production. On the hook, wifi raps, “I just checked up on your location then I saw you wasn’t home/Now I’m running out of breath just to make it home, now I’m running out of breath just to/I’m steady calling to your cellphone, asking where you at?/Girl, you know I hate it when you leave, bring it back.”|
Showcasing acclaimed tracks such as the FADER-premiered emotive “Luv Me Never” and the Beats 1-debuted “Lost My Mind,” which features an appearance from fellow rising star Kembe X, When Hell Falls is a Neil Armstrong-type moment for the young rapper, stepping forth unencumbered by gravity.. Released by wifi’s own Rich Life Records and distributed by EMPIRE, When Hell Falls exploits the inertia of last year’s Black Heart Revenge, a gloomy collection of turn-up anthems, which charted at #69 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart with little promotion and led to the Black Heart Revenge Tour, wifi’s first headlining national tour. With over 18 million streams and 150,000 followers across platforms, wifisfuneral will look to grow his rabid fanbase even further in 2017. Catch wifisfuneral at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival in May, alongside Kendrick Lamar, Future, Lil Wayne, and more.

EMPIRE was founded in 2010 as an artist-friendly, progressive digital distribution company. After early success, and identifying future icons such as Kendrick Lamar, Sage The Gemini, and Rich Homie Quan, EMPIRE was quickly regarded as a tastemaker in the industry and throughout the past five years evolved into a full-fledged record label, distributor and publisher for independent musicians. With the company and roster growing at a breakneck pace, EMPIRE has effectively disrupted a stale business model by bringing its energy, expertise, and acumen to its artists and labels. Given its reputation, EMPIRE works with today’s hottest talent from superstars such as T.I. and red-hot newcomers such as Anderson .Paak. While remaining 100% independent, EMPIRE has also partnered with Atlantic Records for a joint venture, home to breakout star D.R.A.M. and joined forces with Republic Records for the release of Sage The Gemini’s Remember Me album.
