One of the best pure rappers in hip-hop’s new wave, Florida’s wifisfuneral crafts cerebral and head-knocking rap tracks. Uniting over a Jahlil Beats-produced heater, wifi and fellow riser YBN Nahmir show off their skills on the uptempo “Juveniles,” wifi’s latest video. In the video, the two emcees work as trainers to a crew of scantily clad ladies, as they prepare for a boxing match. “Juveniles” is the latest release from Ethernet Vol. 1, wifi’s highly anticipated upcoming mixtape, due June 8. “Juveniles” follows the eventful, Complex-premiered video for Ethernet single “Knots,” featuring Jay Critch and boasting a cameo appearance from Fatboy SSE, as well as he syrupified single “Genesis” and the paranoid “25 Lighters,” which recently copped a verse from Curren$y on the remix.
Signed to Alamo Records, wifisfuneral experienced a meteoric rise in his late teens, building a sizable following on SoundCloud.
