Fetty Wap is bringing his Wayne Out Canadian Tour to Mile One Centre in St. John’s on September 20th, with special guest Peter Jackson and DJJO.
For the Trap&B artist named 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, calling home to a city called Paterson. Currently, “Trap Queen” is No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 13 on iTunes, 19 million YouTube plays and 22 million SoundCloud plays. Not bad for a newcomer.
On his records, Fetty Wap’s wobbly voice cuts through trap instrumentals and melodies, making his honest and aggressive lyrics a staple of Jersey’s rap scene. His likability comes from his influences, which are Gucci Mane (his name pays homage to Gucci’s nickname Guwop) and other trap innovators such as Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J and Project Pat.
This year, Fetty Wap’s profile rose when he earned co-signs from stars like Trey Songz, Rihanna and Kanye West. 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.
More recently, Fetty Wap is determined to make his Trap&B songs resonate in 2015. He’s on the right track to be the hottest artist at SXSW with performances at Rolling Stone, Samsung and Fool’s Gold’s showcases. Meanwhile, he’s finalizing his self-titled RGF Productions/300 Entertainment debut that’ll showcase his talents outside his viral hit.
