The star of summer’s breakout hit “Trap Queen” may have him sent into international stardom, but Fetty Wap never forgets where it all began – the Paterson, N.J streets. In the midst of touring with Chris Brown, the rapper will use his off-time for a special performance in his hometown.
Years ago, Fetty was an Eastside High School student trying to make a name for himself and his rhymes. On the same field where his old school plays football, the rapper will give 1,200 students an exclusive, free concert next week (Aug. 27). NorthJersey.com reports that RGF Production members will also join him on stage.
With the help of his label and Paterson Public School, tickets are reserved only for all students attending one of the six Paterson public high schools and are available on Monday (Aug. 24). Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres looks forward to the impact the concert will have on students. “This is all about wishes coming true.This is an urban rags-to-riches story. It doesn’t get better than this,” Fetty said.
A dedication to Paterson has became synonymous with the name “Fetty Wap,” as he continues his mission of bettering his community with his success. The rapper said, “Giving back is one of the greatest feelings. #Paterson #Zoogang #RGF #Jersey”
