Favorite Quotes from Fetty Wap
“I don’t care about being Fetty Wap. Like, this doesn’t mean anything to me. My plan was to make sure that my son would be good, and I have a daughter now, so now she’s included into the equation, and the work I do as Fetty Wap made me care.” – Fetty Wap
“Can’t nobody do what Fetty Wap does. So when I go to the studio, it may be four to five hours max, probably three days out the week. I used to go to the studio for 10 to 15 hours, and I would do five to 10 songs. Now I go for four to five hours and I do, like, 15 to 20 songs. I’m an ad-lib guy. Most people know me for my ad-libs.” – Fetty Wap
“Because you never know when it’s going to stop. Wake up tomorrow and it could all be gone bro. All the cars, all the motorcycles, everything. All the memories. We could go into a state of emergency, you know, and the world goes to war. The money won’t count for nothing.” – Fetty Wap
“You start to stress yourself out about the people around you. You start to think, like, “What do you really want from me?” And then you forget that you, at some point, asked them for something. At some point, you needed them to take you in because you ain’t had nowhere to go. And now you turn around and question their loyalty to you, and those were the only people loyal to you. The only people that really loved you are still there, and you tanked on them. I’ll never let that happen.” – Fetty Wap
