“He told me to keep my head up and good luck with my career,” Fetty Wap says of Kanye West.
Last week, Roc Nation held its first annual Roc City Classic to coincide with the beginning of the NBA All-Star weekend in New York City. Kanye West headlined the concert, which took place outside in the streets of the Flatiron District.
In addition to inviting several members from his G.O.O.D. Music roster on stage, ‘Ye brought Fetty Wap out to perform his “favorite song at the moment,” “Trap Queen.”
For Fetty, the moment was “a life-changing experience.”
In a new interview with XXL, the New Jersey native reflects on the event.
“To come from nothing and to have somebody like Kanye, that barely likes anybody to bring you out welcomingly, and he was out there rocking with me and singing along with me, it just feels like I can touch the sky,” Fetty says. “It was like a surprise. They surprised me. I was told they were going to bring me to the concert. Next thing I know I’m backstage getting dressed, and I’m like, “Oh shit. Hold up. What’s going on?” He actually gave me a pair of Yeezy Boost sneakers as well, from Yeezy.
“He told me to keep my head up and good luck with my career,” he continues. “It was an incredible night for me that I will never forget.”
Fetty’s anthem has already been remixed several times. Rappers like French Montana, Fabolous, Yo Gotti and Quavo have each added their spin on the “Trap Queen” tune.
“My favorite so far has to be Yo Gotti and Quavo from Migos,” Fetty says. “I was actually in Atlanta at the Quality Control studios with Quavo when he did the remix, but we’ve been working on something else with Quavo. He threw me on a song and I’m just waiting on him to drop it any minute now.”
In regards to collaborating with Kanye again, Fetty says he would “definitely love to work with Kanye on something” in the future.
