Fetty Wap Drops “Wake Up”
Fetty Wap has his own song for 4/20, but decided to make it more about overcoming adversity. "Wake Up" sees the 2015 XXL Freshman touch on his tough times in school and how he got the last laugh over all the kids who mocked him.
"I told moms I ain't tripping over school cause I made it/Said, Boy you got a son, supposed to be his inspiration//Put a milli in his bank account, don't leave him, I was thinking/I'll never do him wrong like they did the operation/Took the n---a's vision from him, was a mothafucking baby/Said a couple years later they could give him back to me/Technology is moving too slow, I'm waiting patiently/Shit, I don't want it no more, this how I'm meant to be/Remember young kids in the school used to laugh at him/Guess I played my numbers real good, check the mathematics," Fetty Wap raps.
Fetty Wap also shared a piece he wrote on Twitter that explained the subject of the song in greater detail. Here is an excerpt:
"This song is for everyone that celebrates 4/20 all year but still passes that math test," Fetty wrote. "This song is for everyone that might not be in the top of their class or most popular but you still know where you’re headed, just riding on your own path. I can tell you from experience that if you really put your heart and effort into achieving your goals, you won’t walk away empty handed. You’ll make it."
