If you haven’t heard of this Icon by now…well, as cliche as it is, you’ve probably been living under a rock. These past six months have been absolutely insane for the Paterson, New Jersey, native, after jumping to stardom on the back of the record “Trap Queen.” The song is currently peaking in popularity. Don’t believe me? Okay. Well maybe you’ll believe the fact that Kanye called it “his favorite song out” a few weeks ago at his show in New York City, and proceeded to bring out Fetty Wap to perform the track. (The entire experience — even hanging backstage with Travis Scott — was all a surprise to Fetty Wap.)
Fetty also spoke recently about coming from ‘Ye’s fashion show, prior to performing. That’s very fitting because no matter where you end up seeing Fetty, you can count on him looking crazy fresh. Not only did he perform with Kanye, but he also got fresh by wearing the new adidas Yeezy Boosts and a killer trench coat, and also explained to DJ Self what happened to his eye.
Now it’s pretty hard to look as clean as a style entrepreneur — as I’m sure ‘Ye would love to be called — yet Fetty sure did a stellar job. One look had him rockin’ a fresh cut, a plain white v-neck, and a white and black varsity jacket, something that’s going to be trending in 2015. It was a similar look to our previous Icon, The Weeknd. But Fetty topped off his look with a scarf.
Going forward, be sure to watch out for Fetty Wap. I can only imagine that with his current success he’ll be heading out on a tour sometime soon.
