When he’s not looking for trap queens or asking shorties to come his way, Fetty Wap is busy being an inspiration to the youth. In recent post by PEOPLE, Fetty was cited as the inspiration for 11-year old Jayden Burgos. Jayden lost his eye two weeks after his first birthday due to a rare cancer. The young boy said he was motivated to go without his prosthetic eye thanks to Fetty’s decision to not use one either.
“Upon seeing Fetty Wap’s eye, Jayden was immediately taken aback,” says Vaden, 30. “At first he didn’t say much, but then we would overhear him talking to family members and friends about this rapper Fetty Wap who, like him, was missing an eye, and how he thought it was really cool.”
Jayden soon decided he wanted to show the world his true self.
The rapper got a chance to meet Jayden on February 24 during one of his shows. Upon meeting Jayden, Fetty said he was “proud of Jayden and I appreciate him more than he may know.” Fetty then invited him backstage and gave him some free apparel as a gift.
