Fetty Wap – Friends feat. Monty Download Mp3
Willie Junior Maxwell II (born June 7, 1991), better known by his stage name Fetty Wap, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. He rose to prominence after his debut single “Trap Queen” reached number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in May 2015. This helped Maxwell secure a record deal with 300 Entertainment, and eventually Atlantic Records (which distributes 300 Entertainment physically).
He subsequently released two Top 10 singles in the U.S., “679” and “My Way”. Both were featured on Fetty Wap’s eponymously titled debut album, released in September 2015 and peaking atop the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.
Fetty Wap began taking an 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 Gucci Mane’s alias, Guwop.
Fetty Wap’s commercial debut single, titled “Trap Queen”, was released in early 2014. This song appeared in his 2014 mixtape Up Next released in July 2014. He recorded the song in February 2014. However, it did not gain major recognition until mid-November 2014, and since then it has become a platinum record and has over 130 million plays on SoundCloud.
In November 2014, Fetty Wap represented by Attorney Navarro W. Gray secured a recording contract with 300 Entertainment, the imprint was founded by Lyor Cohen, Kevin Liles, Roger Gold and Todd Moscowitz, as well as a distribution deal with Atlantic Records. The song “Trap Queen” is about a woman dealing and cooking crack cocaine. His second mixtape, Fetty Wap: The Mixtape was originally set for release in February 2015, but was delayed because he continued to create new songs. In June 2015, Wap was included in XXL’s 2015 Freshman Class.
