Just in time for 4/20, wifisfuneral recruits New Orleans veteran Curren$y for the remix to “25 Lighters.” The two trade bars over the homage to the DJ DMD classic, based on a phrase originally used by Memphis legends 8 Ball & MJG. Wifi’s signature double time flow meshes perfectly with the Jet Life rapper’s laidback presence. The “25 Lighters” remix comes after the original song and music video racked up over 3M streams in less than six weeks since its release. Since that time, wifi has dropped “Knots,” his collaboration with Brooklyn upstart Jay Critch, a remix to Comethazine’s DJ Mustard-produced “Sticks,” and a couple of collaborations with Robb Bank$. More music is on the way, with wifi putting the finishing touches on his Ethernet mixtape.
Just 20-years-old and already with a devoted legion of fans, wifisfuneral expanded his sonic world with 2017’s Boy Who Cried Wolf, his major label debut mixtape. Featuring singles such as the Joe Budden-cosigned “JoeBuddenProbablyThinksICantRap :(,” the slyly self-aware “lil jeff hardy >:-),” and the posse cut “Centerfold,” Boy Who Cried Wolf reached #49 on Passion of the Weiss’s list of the 50 Best Albums of 2017. Boy Who Cried Wolf was wifi’s second project of 2017, following When Hell Falls, which debuted at #17 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Chart and preceded a successful SXSW where he caught the attention of Todd Moscowitz, who signed him to his new venture Alamo/Interscope. In fall 2017, wifi embarked on the successful Boy Who Cried Wolf Tour, which ended in December at Rolling Loud Southern California. wifi capped a successful year with one of his biggest hits yet, “LilSkiesFuneral,” which features breakout rapper Lil Skies and racked up over 4 million streams on all platforms. Named one of the Best New Artists of 2017 by Pigeons and Planes, wifisfuneral’s star has only just started to rise. Look for the young rapper to continue his rise in 2018 with the upcoming release of Ethernet.
