I know Fetty Wap is a rapper, but I also heard that there is some influence of trap in his music (there is a song called Trap Queen). What kind of genre is his music? Is there an official genre for this mix of rap and trap?

  • Hi. Yes, they are both helpful. Why do you ask? Especially after such a long time? I'm curious now... – user2866 Jul 5 '17 at 9:48

From this article http://masetv.com/fetty-wap-names-gucci-mane-as-influence-behind-his-ignorant-rb-music/ he refers to his music as "ignorant R&B"

The Awards and nominations chart below on wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fetty_Wap#cite_note-42 shows that he received nominations for mainly HipHop and Rap, but this doesn't mean his music can't also include other sub-genre influences(i.e. trap). Personally, being a regular listener of his music, I consider him mainly trap.

There is always a way to create a new genre, or stretch the sub genres in general. Look at metal for example, there are too many subgenres for everything.

Fetty Wap is what I would categorize as Hiphop/Rap with trap influences, nothing more or less to keep it simple.

  • could you say more on how the different elements in his music come from each bucket ? for those not familiar with the artist or genre, but curious. – Angst Sep 7 '16 at 19:38

I think he's a trap rapper/singer because his latest album was named Trap & B.
