Willie grew up in Paterson, New Jersey. It is known that being a child he suffered glaucoma in both of his eyes, and doctors couldn’t save one of his eyes, so he is with prosthesis in his eye. The history of the nickname Fatty Wap was a very interesting one, as one part of the stage name – Fetty – Willie earned as he was well known for making money and the word’s meaning is money; another part – Wap – was added in favour of the rapper Gucci Mane. Fetty Wap started his career as a hip hop artist, and later, with a wish to do something different, he started singing and song-writing. His first single “Trap Queen” (2014) Fetty released in 2014; the song was praised by critics for cheery production and nice vocals, and peaked in the top position of the Billboard Hot Rap Songs and Billboard Rhythmic, both in USA. More, it appeared in first position of R&B Official Charts in the UK, and entered the music top 100 in various countries all over the world. With the previously mentioned song, Wap appeared on the stage at the MTV Movie Awards 2015, and BET Awards 2015. To add more, the song was certified platinum in USA, gold in Denmark, New Zealand and UK, thus helping to add sums to the overall size of Fetty Wap’s net worth.

Later, he released three more singles: “679” (2015) featuring Remy Boyz, “My Way” (2015) featuring Monty and “Again” (2015) which entered the main music charts in USA, Australia and UK though they were not as successful as the debut one. Soon his debut studio album is going to be released in which all the mentioned singles will be listed.

To add more points to his career, Fetty is known for guest appearances with such artists as Choo Biggz, 50 Cent, Tank, Natalie La Rose, Jeremih, Sage the Gemini, Troy Ave, Yalee, Gucci Mane and others. Fetty might be easily distinguished because of wearing the Haiti flag in honour of his daughter’s grandma who passed away. Wap openly expresses appreciation and love to the Haitian culture.

Finally, in the personal life of the hip hop artist and singer, Wap likes to keep it private. However, it is known that he has a daughter out of the wedlock. Currently, the hit maker is dating the model Alexiis Sky.
