Fetty Wap Explains Why His Mother Is A “Trap Queen”


For the masses, Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” can have multiple meanings or simply allude to a woman who is skilled at selling illegal substances.

But in a recent interview with New York Magazine, the New Jersey rapper revealed he dubs any woman in his life that has been loyal to him with the royal trap-infused name. And this includes, of course, his mother.

“Everybody doesn’t have the same trap queen. Everyone can have their own trap queen,” he told the magazine. “There is the way I use it in the song, but my mom is a trap queen. She held us down and she was a queen at doing it. She took care of her children and her tribe, made sure we had food on the table, and kept our heads up. However you want to put it, there are different meanings to it.”

In addition to explaining the meaning behind the name or how he uses it, Fetty also went onto state where his inspiration came from when writing the song:“The person I was dealing with at the time [of writing the song], she kind of just showed me a different side of women,” he said. “She still to this day supports me and buys all my songs on iTunes, she still shows me loyalty, the same loyalty before everybody knew who I was. That’s where I get my inspirations and my motivation from for most of my songs and the meanings behind them.”
