Biography

Willie Maxwell (born June 7, 1990), better known by his stage name Fetty Wap, is an American rapper from Paterson, New Jersey. He is best known for his 2014 hit single "Trap Queen," which peaked at number 2 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 in May 2015. 
He signed with 300 Entertainment in November 2014 and is set to release his self-titled debut album in 2015. He was also chosen as part of the XXL magazine 2015 Freshman Class. 

Willie Maxwell was raised in a housing project in Paterson, New Jersey. He began taking interest in music in 2013. Initially starting off as only a rapper, he later decided to start singing as well because he "wanted to do something different." He was nicknamed "Fetty" (slang for money) as he was known for making money. "Wap" was added to the end of the name to perform under in tribute to his favorite rapper Gucci Mane. When he was a child, Wap developed glaucoma in both eyes. He revealed in a 2015 interview that doctors were unable to save his left eye and instead fitted him with an ocular prosthesis. 

Wap's first single was released in early 2014 titled "Trap Queen." He made the song in February 2014, but it did not start to gain recognition until mid-November 2014, and since then it has become a platinum record and has over 80 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 to create new songs. On June 29, 2015, Wap released his second single "679." The song's accompanying music video premiered on YouTube in May. 
His next single, "My Way", became his second top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. 

In June 2015, Fetty Wap was awarded the MC100 Award of 2015 by Music Choice, for the most played music video for his hit single "Trap Queen." During the week of July 26, 2015 to August 1, 2015, the rapper matched Billboard marks by hip-hop superstars Eminem and Lil Wayne. He became the first male rapper with three songs occupying the top 20 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since Eminem did so in 2013. He also became the first male rapper in four years to have concurrent singles reach the top 10 of the same chart since Lil Wayne did so in 2011. With his fourth single "Again", Wap became the first act in the Hot Rap Songs chart's 26-year history to chart his first four entries in the top 10 simultaneously.
