Social media users have been praising Fetty Wap’s song “Sweet Yamz” (lyric video below), which was released this week just in time for the holiday.
The song is a cover of “Yamz,” a 2021 song by Masego and Devin Morrison, and it has a smooth, retro R&B vibe.
31-year-old Fetty, real name Willie Maxwell II, became well-known in 2015 thanks to the Grammy-nominated earworm “Trap Queen,” which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
In connection with the release of “Sweet Yamz” on November 22, Fetty provided funding for a Thanksgiving food distribution in Paterson, however he was unable to go in person to distribute turkeys.
The rapper and musician from Paterson pleaded guilty to a narcotics charge in August, admitting that he conspired to sell cocaine, and is currently behind bars and faces five to nine years in jail.
Fetty was detained at Citi Field last year after being charged by federal authorities with conspiring to distribute and possess dangerous narcotics. He entered a not guilty plea.
Later, after breaking the terms of his pretrial release, his bail was revoked, and he was detained at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center. He allegedly threatened to kill someone in a video call, according to police.
In a statement for his “Sweet Yamz” Thanksgiving gift, Fetty stated, “I’m very grateful for my fans and for my community because I wouldn’t be where I am without them. “Regardless of the situation, I think it’s necessary to give back, especially to my hometown. Shout-out to each and every one of my fans, supporters, and everyone who is still rocking with me even though I can’t be there in person!
Fetty rapidly followed the success of “Trap Queen” off his self-titled debut album in 2015 with the two additional top-charting tracks, “My Way” and “679.”
His debut album entered the Billboard 200 at number one. In 2021, he issued “The Butterfly Effect,” his second album.
