FreeWifi and Mass Appeal premiere music video Salsa

“boisterous bars…a standout track”
November 29, 2017 – FREEWIFI partners with Mass Appeal to premiere their music video “Salsa,” a celebratory tribute to Spanish music and culture. Directed by Brix Works, the artistic filtered clip features J. Plaza, Tha Rift and Daddy Dinero joined by Xanarchy member $teven Cannon cleverly using salsa and other Spanish words as metaphors for all things dope. “Salsa” is now available on Apple Music, Spotify, iTunes other digital service providers.
The song’s theme was inspired by the track. “Angelo Bombay, who produced ‘Ego’ for us, sent the beat over. As soon as the beat dropped, we thought…Aye! This sounds like some salsa shit, lol,” the group tells Mass Appeal. “J. Plaza jumped in and freestyled that catchy ass hook, so we tapped into our Spanish selves and the rest was history.”
The group asked Xanarchy member $teven Cannon to guest on the song. “We first met $teven Cannon and Lil Xan in Los Angeles while we were in the studio with DJ FU working on a song called ‘Ghost’ and a few others,” they explain. “Then, $teven came out to Minnesota to rock an after-party with us after we performed at Soundset 2017. That’s bro, we had a good time at Soundset…We all were just coolin’ on stage, sippin’ on Henny, watching Travis Scott perform. A couple weeks later we sent $teven ‘Salsa’ and he sent his verse right back. He killed it!”
FREEWIFI anticipates releasing their Rostrum Records debut album next year. “Every song that we created is dope and people are gonna love it. Well, some people will hate it too but that happens with everything you do in life,” the group says. “Our sound is unique because some concepts we come up with individually but mostly we’re in the studio together. We just vibe and run off of each other’s ideas. You never know what to expect from FREEWIFI.”
The “Salsa” audio premiered on Pigeons & Planes in September. The Minneapolis trio has also released the raw, hard hitting single “Ego” followed by the invincible, head nodding “Ghost.”

Three of Minneapolis’ finest, rising solo MCs (Tha Rift, J. Plaza, Daddy Dinero) have united to form FREEWIFI, a force unlike anything the city has ever seen. Producer Angelo Bombay brought the trio together in 2016 via social media and the chemistry was undeniable in their debut collaboration “Ego.” The song showcased the Rostrum Records artists’ personalities and compatible, yet distinct styles — Tha Rift’s catchy chorus, Plaza’s melodic baritone flow and Daddy Dinero’s confident delivery and likeable arrogant lyrics.
The debut single was an instant local success, generating more than 100,000 views on YouTube and support from area staples Minneapolis radio Go 90.3, local weekly CityPages and the opportunities to open up for Machine Gun Kelly, Wiz Khalifa and Waka Flocka. Last spring the group kicked off a series of major shows including Heather B’s Fifth Element stage at Soundset, EST Festival, Summer Set and A3C.
“FREEWIFI reps the unity of us coming together,” FREEWIFI explains. “We are three different MCs from different walks of life, but we connected through social media and phones before we connected in person. We also reach and impact our society by living a free lifestyle and encouraging others to live free spirited.” Hence, the name FREEWIFI.
Tha Rift caught the attention of tastemaker blog Pigeons & Planes after responding to their challenge for readers to get a tattoo of the website’s logo. While P&P loved the gesture, the team was equally impressed with the group’s song “Salsa” which it premiered and described as “full of clever lines that deserve an extra listen or two.” J. Plaza scored a re-tweet from Jaden Smith after he remixed Smith’s song “Batman” and sent him a link via social media. And, Dinero’s 2015 remix of Drake’s “Energy” is nearing 1 million streams on SoundCloud.
The union is the perfect complement to their talents. FREEWIFI’s dynamic forthcoming debut album is on track to put Minneapolis on the hip hop map, worldwide.
