2014 was the year of Fetty Wap.
Many remember the New Jersey recording artist’s string of chart-topping hits, “679,” “Trap Queen” and “My Way”. Released his self-titled debut with 300 in 2015, shortly after he faded from super stardom following unexpected underwhelming sales. Unable to recapture the same magic that made him one of Hip Hop’s most-sought-after. However, many believe his light was deemed due to bad decisions by the powers that are at the label and burnt Fetty out after over-saturating the market on his debut.
Since his downfall there have been plenty of speculations on his career. 50 Cent appears to have a definitive answer as to what happen. 50 Cent brought Fetty Wap out to perform his signature hits for a sold-out Madison Square Garden on Tuesday for the final season premiere of the hit Starz show, Power.
Among an all-star cast of friends of the Get Rich or Die Tryin creator, Fetty Wap delivered a star-studded performance that left fans questioning on social media, what exactly happened to Fetty’s career.
50 gave his professional opinion on what happened in his Instagram comments to fans, saying: “He just had a contract issues. It makes an artist not want to make music.”
Fetty Wap is still releasing music under 300 Entertainment, by way of his RGF Productions. His most recent release is a Tee Grizzley feature on “Zoo”.
