Fetty Wap does not have 14 kids—and he has no idea why someone would write that on his Wikipedia page, either. “That’s a lot of kids,” the 24-year-old deadpans when asked about the bogus factoid, before clarifying that he has two children, a newborn daughter and a 4-year-old boy. “My son has been my number one supporter since I started,” he says with pride. After a few years of mixtape toiling, the artist born Willie Maxwell has reached the type of fame where Internet randos feel compelled to just make up shit about him.
It’s all because of “Trap Queen”, his ode to love and drugs and money, which currently sits at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. The track highlights his devilishly melodic singing voice, a warbling, lightning-shocked instrument seemingly descended from Rick James that sounds right at home on the radio following the success of fellow off-kilter hook man iLoveMakonnen.
