Fresh off his inclusion on Forbes' Hip-Hop Cash Princes, Fetty Wap is sharing a whole new side to himself. The New Jersey rapper talks to Interview Magazine and opens up to The Daily Show host Trevor Noah about his childhood, his astronomical success, and the only two jobs he's ever had besides being a rapper. “I worked at FedEx for, like, two days, and I worked at Popeye’s for a week. I just needed a check. It was a standard thing for people where I’m from. Well, people from there that did what I did for a living, you know what I’m saying? Go get you a quick check when you mess your money up. It’s so crazy how much happened for me. Like, I thought I was going to be living in my same house this whole time.”
Fetty also explains his penchant for taking care of the people around him. “I don’t care about being Fetty Wap. Like, this doesn’t mean anything to me,” he says. “My plan was to make sure that my son would be good, and I have a daughter now, so now she’s included into the equation, and the work I do as Fetty Wap made me care. To see that people appreciate the work that I put in to make these songs for them, that’s what makes me care.”
He also takes care of his team around him, like that time he recently surprised Monty with a new BMW for Christmas. “Understand that there’s work behind this. Like, we got about 17 members in the squad, seven apartments, and 12 cars that you got to pay for. And those aren’t even my cars. All my cars is paid for. I own five of my cars-I’m paying for my boys’ cars, my mom’s car, my sister’s car, my brother’s car, my mom’s rent, my sister’s rent, my rent, my car, my other car…” Not only is Fetty the gift that keeps gifting us new music, but he is also a hero when it comes to looking out for the ones that matter.
