More than a year after his breakout single "Trap Queen" reached No. 8 in the UK singles chart, Fetty Wap finally made his debut appearance on these shores at the sold-out Apollo in Hammersmith on May 30. With tour schedules put on hold at the end of 2015, owing to a bike collision that left him hospitalised with a broken leg, the New Jersey rapper opened the show with the disclaimer that, despite a full recovery, his performance may not yet be at 100%. Backed by right-hand man Monty, a clearly energised Fetty Wap hashed out a full set, stamped with his patented brand of R&B-infused rap. A tricky task in handling the breath control balance of rapping verses, singing his own choruses whilst also rocking out the odd dance move, Fetty was prepared for it all.
Launching into new single, the Wiz Khalifa-assisted "Wake Up", Fetty ripped through his short but substantial catalogue of current hits including "679", "My Way" and, of course, the ubiquitous "Trap Queen". As always with the hottest tickets in town, Complex UK were up close and personal, shooting all the action on the night. Peep the pictures after the jump and catch Fetty at Wireless and Reading & Leeds festivals later this summer.
