Palm Beach rapper wifisfuneral will drop his debut full length, Black Heart Revenge, via online streaming platforms May 27, and to get us hyped he's posted two of its tracks to his SoundCloud the past two Fridays.
Produced by Danny Wolf, "Love the Feeling" features a verse from fellow Florida rapper Robb Banks, while the Alex Freedo-produced "Grim" rides on a wavy, airy 808 trap beat. Listen to the pair of tracks, mixed by Henry Daher and already streamed over 100K times, below.
The rising young rapper — who's earned early nods from the likes of indie rap darling Earl Sweatshirt and recently threw down a set at Miami's weed-themed hip-hop festival Rolling Loud — showed promise on his This Is Temporary EP late last year and has amassed an eager following across social media.
“I chose artist management because it feels more natural," Wifi told New Times in an interview shortly after the EP's release. "I don’t really agree with the direction labels are going right now, so I’m going to keep everything independent. No one is telling me I can’t be myself." He's currently managed by Dope Entertainment.
wifisfuneral will perform at an all-ages "Homecoming Show" on May 27 at Zenon Nightclub in West Palm Beach.
