Washington, D.C.

Called a “rapper’s rapper” by The Washington Post and “from the future” by Bandcamp, WiFiGawd makes singular hip-hop music that equally evokes chopped and screwed and Soundcloud rap — though he expands beyond the limits of both. His record CHAIN OF COMMAND is a must-listen, and a few credentials include opening for Show Me the Body on tour and releasing music through the band’s CORPUS collective.
