Fetty Wap’s “My Way” Video Is Finally Here

Fetty Wap‘s self-titled debut album is due out this Friday, via Lyor Cohen‘s 300 Entertainment, but that will likely be a blip on his radar as far as 2015 accomplishments go. The Patterson native dominated radio and the charts this year, tied Billboard records, and became a force to be reckoned with in the pop world.

This song, “My Way”–the follow-up to his breakthrough hit “Trap Queen”–has got a lot to do with that. The song could’ve been found on Fetty’s Soundcloud as early as late 2014, but with Drake‘s help, it took off, and it didn’t need a music video to help it skyrocket to the Billboard Hot 100 top 10, where it would bow at #7.

Still, with Friday looming, Fetty links with Monty, his most frequent collaborator and the artist originally featured on “My Way,” for the official video, which you can watch above.

Fetty Wap Inspires Child to Go to School Without Prosthetic Eye

When people say Hip Hop only impacts the culture negatively *sips tea*..

When you first saw Fetty Wap you probably noticed something is wrong with one of his eyes and he flaunts it without a care in the world.

Well he lost his eye at six months old due to an illness he was born with called glaucoma. He got reconstructive surgery at 12 years old but doesn’t wear the prosthetic eye because he “didn’t want to look like everybody else”. Fetty’s boldness rubbed off on a little boy named Jayden in New Jersey.

Jayden’s mother wrote on Instagram:

Thanks to Fetty Wap for saying F the world this is me, and for helping make our baby boy just a little more remarkable than he already is. And we’ll be purchasing his album, a small thank you to him for changing Jayden’s life forever.

Fetty heard Jayden’s story and responded saying:

All I wanna do is show ppl that it’s not how you look or what you see it’s how you see it and what your looking for from yourself. I appreciate his confidence I appreciate you taking the time out for me and thank you for being a fan or me as a person and thank lil man for being a fan of Fetty Wap 100.

This story is more assurance of Hip Hop’s influence.

PREMIERE: Rawyals Unveil Visual for “Zonin”

Since bursting onto the scene four months ago, Rawyals have shown no signs of slowing down. Their mid tempo, melodic debut single “King Me” featuring Fetty Wap, off of their debut album Our Queendom, continues to steadily rise up the Urban Radio Charts sitting in the Top 50. With over 100k streams on Soundcloud, 40k views on Vevo, and constant rotation on MTV Jams, Rawyals release the third visual off of their highly anticipated album.

“Zonin” was shot on location in the Dominican Republic, and captures the Caribbean aesthetic. It’s the perfect ode to the end of the summer, when you don’t want the nights to end, the cigarillos to dry up, or the cups to empty. Watch the new visual below!

Natasha Fisher Does a Mashup of Fetty Wap’s “679” & Future’s “Where Ya At”

The past month has been incredible for Natasha Fisher. Her “All Eyes On You” cover was favorited by rap royalty Nicki Minaj, and to date, the video has accumulated over 15,000 views in less than a month. Returning with some new heat, the Canadian songstress tackles Fetty Wap’s “679” and Future and Drake’s “Where Ya At.” The live mashup is a total switch-up from the popular summer jams’ original arrangements. Be sure to follow Natasha on Twitter and like her Facebook page. Listen for yourself!

Fetty Wap Announces the Release Date for His Debut Album

Let’s see how much America really likes Zoo Wap

Fetty Wap is 2015’s most reliable hit-maker, with three Top 20 peaks to show for the three single’s he’s released this year, including a #2 finish for “Trap Queen.” He’s been touted and cosigned by everyone from Drake and Kanye West to Taylor Swift, and now, in September, he’s ready for his grand finale.

According to this interview with AP, Fetty, a native of Paterson, New Jersey, is finally ready to release his yet-to-be-titled debut album on September 25. According to Wap, born Willie Maxwell, it was the careful guidance of his label head and accomplished industry exec Lyor Cohen why he wasn’t in a rush to put music on the shelves. “(Lyor) talk to me like a mentor,” says Wap, who signed on the dotted line with 300 Entertainment in November of 2014.

 

 

Fetty Wap Might Possibly Have Another Drake Collaboration In The Works

Fetty Wap literally owned the Summer. From “Trap Queen” to “Come My Way”, then Drake pulled up on the remix, setting Fetty’s bar even higher. He recently stopped by to do an interview with Big Boy and spoke about his performance at Taylor Swift’s concert. He also mentioned that he keeps a few numbers in his phone which includes Kanye West’s and Drake’s. He even teased that he’s working on a forthcoming collaboration with Drake.

Smells like another Fetty anthem is coming our wayyyyyyy (Fetty Wap voice).
