Fetty Wap is a soldier, father, a mentor, a leader for people that I never thought I'd be a leader for. A role model. A son.

I still will never quit.
I love tattoos. And mine symbolise who I really am. I have a Samurai on my left arm. At a subconscious level, I connect to this warrior and model myself on his discipline, skills and honour. There is also a tribal tattoo and a Chinese symbol of faith. I have seen a lot of people getting tattoos just because it's a trend.
Being a role model is a privilege.
I'm no model lady. A model's just an imitation of the real thing.
