Fetty Wap grew up in the projects of Paterson, NJ, his right hand man is Montana "Monty" Buckz. He has a son and also a daughter named "Zaviera". Wap began taking interest in music in 2013. He initially was just a rapper but later decided to start singing as well because he "wanted to do something different." His brother and mother both have a history of singing. Wap's Trap Queen single was released in early 2014 titled "Trap Queen." He made the song "Trap Queen" in February 2014, but it did not start to get recognition until Mid November 2014, and since it has became a "gold record" and has over 10 million plays on soundcloud. His debut mixtape, Fetty Wap: The Mixtape was originally set for release in February 2015 but was delayed because he continued making new songs. When he was a child, Wap was involved in an "accident" which resulted in the development of congenital glaucoma in both of his eyes. His doctors were able to save one eye and now his left eye is fake. Sometimes he likes to go without an eye, like in the video for "Trap Queen".
