Hip-Hop’s newest hit-maker is already breaking records
Fetty Wap broke onto the scene late last year with “Trap Queen,” the song that makes rapping about guns and drugs sound like a Disney Musical theme song, and in his first summer, he’s become rap’s surest thing on the charts.
Despite Future and Meek Mill‘s dominance on the Billboard 200, Fetty Wap has dominated the Billboard 100, with his three hits, “Trap Queen,” “679,” and “My Way” all charting in the Top 20 this week.
That’s better than a hot summer, that’s record-setting. Fetty becomes the first rapper since Lil Wayne in 2010 to have 2 singles in the Top 10, and the first since Eminem in 2013 to have 3 singles simultaneously in the Top 20. It’s an impressive feat for Fetty, who has only officially released those three singles in his young career, and has yet to release, or even announce, his debut album.
