One of the most impressive lyricists in the rising South Florida rap scene, wifisfuneral wins fans with his cerebral flex. Rocking a hypnotic cadence over whirring synth and bright tubular bells, wifi expands upon his day-to-day on “Genesis,” his latest single. With production from Ronny J, “Genesis” showcases wifi’s tight technique and witty bars, as he shouts down haters and chronicles his drug use, masking his emotional turmoil with clever boasts: “Woke up shitty like ‘fuck today’/I might sip this syrup straight/Drowning my emotions in abyss, like ‘shit, that’s errday.'” “Genesis” is the latest single in a momentous build-up to Ethernet, wifi’s upcoming mixtape, following his team up with Curren$y for the remix to “25 Lighters,” the original version of which has over 3 million streams on all platforms.
