Move over Rick Ross and DJ Khaled, South Florida has a new wave of rappers taking over. From controversial rappers Kodak Black and XXXTENTACION to rising MCs like Wifisfuneral and Lil Pump, rising stars from the Sunshine State are racking up millions of plays on Soundcloud and gaining cult followings along the way. Many of these artists are even co-opting Soundcloud’s Alternative Rock tag, making it an unlikely destination for their genre-defying trap. So, who exactly are they?
$ki Mask The Slump God is known for his brash, in-your-face style and unconventional flows.
Lil Pump is one of the most colorful and bizarre rappers coming out of South Florida right now.
Lil Pump’s closest collaborator, SmokePurpp a.k.a. Lil Purpp, is yet another Miami rapper and producer who has kids across the country losing their minds.
There’s also Wifisfuneral, hailing from Palm Beach, who’s also signed to Alamo Records. He has over 70 songs on Soundcloud that range from aggressive trap to more mellow, complex singles, but “Love The Feeling” is his biggest hit, so far.
