It’s a busy time for Fetty Wap . He was up for two MTV Video Music Awards including “Artist To Watch” and “ Best Hip Hop Video” for his hit single, “Trap Queen . On the night he performed his hit single ‘Trap Queen’ and walked away with ‘Artist To Watch’ award. This month, Fetty made Billboard history, landing four songs in the Top 10 of the Hot Rap Songs Chart—namely “Again” at #8, “679” feat. Remy Boyz at #5, “My Way” feat. Monty at #3, and the ubiquitous “Trap Queen” at #2. This achievement solidified him as the “first artist in the chart’s 26year existence to chart his first four entries in the top 10 simultaneously.” The single ‘Trap Queen’ has remained in the Irish Top 30 singles chart for over 10 weeks now.
He continues to both smash boundaries and break records. Fetty stands out as the “first artist since Eminem to land 3 songs in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100” and the “first artist to take 3 spots on the Shazam Global 200 Chart . ” He’s rising equally quickly on Pandora where he’s reached over 27 million unique listeners in just 90 days with the “fastest rising number of stations.” “Trap Queen” recently earned a Triple-platinum certification from the RIAA for digital sales in excess of 3 million, and “679” went gold. He graced the cover of XXL as part of 2015’s prestigious “Freshmen Class” issue and received a BET Award nomination. He’s taken over television, performing at the MTV Movie Awards, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with The Roots, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE , at the BET Awards , and more.
Fetty Wap known for sharing his love about his ride or die chick on his breakout hit “Trap Queen,” his hustle never stops. Willie Maxwell II hails from New Jersey, like Redman and Joe Budden, calling home to a city called Paterson. The rapper explains it was difficult growing up there, specifically pointing out that “everybody is trying to make it out.” As he adjusts to the attention after blowing up from “Trap Queen” in 2014, his mission in hip-hop isn’t to become more famous, but to use his fortunes to help his community rise above their hardships.
Fetty Wap’s profile rose when he earned co-signs from stars like Trey Songz, Rihanna and Kanye West. In February, Fetty Wap was the surprise guest for West’s Roc City Classic show. “I just turned up. That’s all I can remember,” he says. “I’m just mad appreciative. It’s just a big grateful, feeling that’s just one way of putting it.” Since then, Fetty Wap has been featured in Billboard, Complex and nominated for the 2015 XXL Freshman Class, a coveted list of the next wave of rap stars. He’s also used the bigger platform to introduce his crew Remy Boyz 1738, consisting of up-and-coming rappers Montana Buckz and P Dice. With his growing success, he isn’t letting his condition (his left eye was lost to congenital glaucoma when he was a child) get in the way of chasing his dreams.
