Fetty Wap

It’s hard to believe that rapper Fetty Wap has only been in the hip-hop game for only three years. But he only became interested in music in 2013, starting off as a rapper, but later deciding to diversify his talents as a singer.
His single "Trap Queen," which was uploaded on Soundcloud in 2014, is what placed the up-and-coming rapper on our radars in 2015, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2015, and solidified him a record deal with 300 Entertainment. Then his “679” and “My Way” singles made him a force to be reckoned with, while his self-titled debut album came in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 that same year.

Now a little more than a year later, Fetty Wap is back with his sophomore effort King Zoo (based off his Zoo Gang), which he details will contain a whole new side of Fetty. “It’s going to be a lot different, with more feeling into it,” he mentions. “I really sat down and took my time with the music. It’s more mature than the first album and definitely has a different sound than what people hear from me. It’s still a party sound, but in a more mature Fetty Wap way.” But don’t think he’s totally wandered away from his “ignorant R&B” sound that he refers to his music as being; he just twisted it up a bit to create something new that he thinks all will enjoy. And if they don’t, oh well…

“If it don’t work, it don’t work,” he explains. “I don’t regret anything. All I can do is make music that I think is good. Can’t really worry about much else. I’m always thinking of my fans and make music for them. So if they don’t like it, at least I tried.” But despite his fairly laid back attitude toward the potential reception of the upcoming album, Fetty does admit that he did feel some pressure to bang out another platinum piece to follow up the commercial success of the first one.

“Yeah, I had a lot more pressure,” the 25-year-old confesses. “When I heard the album went platinum, I was like, ‘Damn, now I gotta go hard.’ You gotta try to do it again. But I can’t try, just gotta do it. That’s what comes with the game. You either get better or you let it get to you. I’m not going to let it get to me. Going to go out and do it hard. Can’t let myself go wrong. ”

So far, he’s proving just how hard he’s willing to go and his latest joint will prove that. And if it doesn’t, maybe his vast car collection will. Since signing a deal, his success has allowed him the opportunity to collect an impressive fleet. Totaling 27 rides, Fetty Wap’s love of cars is definitely growing with each check he gets. “I like speed, horsepower and torque,” he reveals about the type of vehicles he prefers.

For the shoot, Fetty chose to showcase a few of his favorite Benzes – a GL63 AMG, CL63 AMG and C63 AMG. “I love AMGs. The CL63 was my first and ever since then I only wanted to get those rides,” he adds. Right now his favorite is the GL63 because he likes how it “drives and handles like a race car.” “It’s all black and that’s hard to find stock. Usually you have to get it customized to look like that. I love it so much that I actually took it on tour with me.” As for the rest of his garage, he has a lot more BMWs and a Ferrari 458 Italia. But the one dream ride that he’s looking to add fairly soon is a LaFerrari.

“It’s a lot easier to get now than two years ago,” he admits about his dream ride becoming a reality. “I’ll be getting it very soon when the timing is right.” We’re guessing that’s going to be after he finds out his King Zoo has gone platinum like his first!
