Fetty Wap Gets a Big Co-Sign From Drake on ‘My Way’ Remix
There are few new rappers that have been as talked about as Fetty Wap, who happens to be rap's current overnight sensation. The "Trap Queen" creator has already built a name for himself with his radio smash of a single and a a collaboration with a certain star MC may solidify him as being more than a flash in the pan.
Apparently, Drake -- like many others -- is a big fan of Fetty Wap's thug ballad, but really took a liking to his follow-up single, "My Way," which has been making the rounds as of late. The Toronto native decided to throw a verse on the record, of which he initially teased with an Instagram post just days ago. Drizzy deleted the video but it quickly resurfaced via a fan page. Audio of an unofficial version of the song has surfaced, which MissInfo.tv dug up and liberated.
The audio features an unknown DJ playing the anticipated collabo for a crowd of people. Drake's verse is tacked on after the hook. "All I gotta do is put my mind to this s--- / Cancel on my ex, I threw the line through that bitch / I like all my exes, I'm fine with that s---," he rhymes comfortably on the NickEBeats-produced track.
The Paterson, N.J. native's indelible hit "Trap Queen" has slowburned its way into the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 after being released in 2014. Some critics have pegged him as a one-hit wonder while others think he's next up, like us here at The Boombox. We featured Fetty Wap in our #NextUp series, in which he performed "Trap Queen" and sat down to talk about his burgeoning career.
With a powerfu cosign from Drake, along with Kanye West -- who showered the young upstart with praise earlier this year -- Fetty Wap looks to be well on his way to being a household name.
UPDATE: Drake has just released the official remix to "My Way." Check out his collabo with Fetty Wap below.
