“But it didn’t work.” Fast forward a few years, Rivera and his mom relocated to Palm Beach, Florida. He chose the name Wifisfuneral after his DJ’s best friend committed suicide. The Wifi part represented his global ambition: “I want the music to be worldwide. I just want people everywhere to listen to it.” After some close calls with drugs.
”I went to the emergency like four times in like a year,” he reveals. Wifi locked in on music, releasing his When Hell Falls project in late January. Please don’t call him a “Soundcloud rapper.” Wifi finds the term disrespectful. “How the fuck you gon’ put me in this fuckin’ category?” Wifi asks. He has busted his ass for all the millions of plays he’s gotten and now he’s went really close to top 10 on iTunes charts. The artists who inspired him to rap include MF Doom, Lil Wayne, and Eminem. His next project, 27 Club.
He says: “Being big enough as if I died at 27. As big as Jimi Hendrix, as big as Kurt Cobain.” Stay tuned for that! -Genius Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
