Fetty Wap has a lot of juice right now. Not only does the New Jersey rapper have three songs in the Billboard top 20, he’s also getting recognition in the style world. Case in point? Maxim magazine’s September fashion issue, which features a profile on Fetty Wap and his personal style quirks—like his aversion to suits despite looking pretty damn sharp in one.
This is a major milestone for the artist, as the realms of rap music and fashion are becoming more and more symbiotic. Not only are rappers frequenting runway shows and collection presentations, they're also serving as campaign stars and even designers. Maybe this is one of the first signs of Fetty Wap becoming a full-fledged style icon, following in the footsteps of rappers like Kanye West and A$AP Rocky. We'll just have to wait and see.
You can take look at several shots from the profile above. To read the full piece, be sure to pick up Maxim magazine’s September issue, featuring cover star Idris Elba.
