His Way

With two hits currently on the charts, it’s no surprise that New Jersey sensation Fetty Wap secured a spot in XXL‘s ‘Freshman Class‘. Today, the “Trap Queen”-maker has it his way by kicking off this year’s freestyle and profile series.

My legacy is going to live with my kids. My music is going to live forever. I’m not scared. This is what I do. I make good music; can’t anybody take that from me. I never get worried about outside critics because I’m not going to be Kendrick Lamar or whomever else. If I had something to prove, I would be doing it for the wrong reasons. I prove everything to my parents already. This is what I’m doing. To my mother, to my friends, they know this is what I’m doing. I don’t have to prove nothing to nobody. If you want to prove something, you can come see me in the booth and we can see what’s up. I got kids. Myself don’t matter no more. I am a father, provider, leader; that’s who I am. Life went from trying to figure out how I’m going to do it to now I know I’m going to do it. I just can’t stop. I can’t fail. I already took my loss and I already was down so it ain’t nowhere to go but up. So I can’t let nothing else bring me down anymore.
