Wifisfuneral has had a wild 2017. Born in the Bronx and raised in Florida, he's become engrained in that area's grungy, manic music scene alongside names like Smokepurpp and Ski Mask the Slump God. His Where Hell Falls mixtape dropped in January, and he followed it up with Boy Who Cried Wolf in August. The releases quickly silenced detractors who deride the movement's lack of technical rapping ability—Wifi is a talented MC with thoughtful and impressive lyrical skills, but he's at his best over big bass.
For all his raw energy and intensity, Wifisfuneral is a rapper's rapper, and we have yet to see the extent of his powers.—Graham Corrigan
