Fetty Wap was once hip-hops hottest artist. His break out hit “Trap Queen” in 2015 peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 list and he was thought to be a one-hit wonder.
“My Way” was another certified banger and put people on notice that maybe fetty was not a one-hit wonder. The industry took notice as well and soon, raps biggest superstar, Drake would cosign Fetty.
In 2016 Fetty’s momentum kept going and he had many feature spots and some more singles such as “Jimmy Choo” and “Wake Up,” which were popular, but not chart breaking.
It wasnt until a feature on Tekashi 6ix9ine’s “KEKE” with A Boggie wit da Hoodie that got people talking about “Fetty being back.”
Fetty's 2018 mix-tape “For My Fans III: The Final Chapter” did not do well at all. Out of the 12 tracks, it was underwhelming and nothing too impressive. Almost every track on this sounded the same.
What happened to the hits he used to make? Not one of these songs could break the hot 100 list and for a guy who made history doing so that is a problem. Fetty needs to go back to making those hits that we know he’s capable of. Otherwise why bother making music again?
