Fetty Wap is a name you hear more and more in the rap game thanks to his hit “Trap Queen,” but many know little about him. He’s from Jersey and lost an eye early in his childhood due to glaucoma.

He refuses to wear a prosthetic or any kind of eye patch because he says that’s a part of him, it’s who he is. Hear him tell it in his own words (and his mother’s words) and the stories he’s heard about how he lost his eye in the video below!
