Fettle down

Fetty Wap might be the first east coast rap dude to be able to trot out the tired old "I'm not a rapper" cliche and actually have a point to stand on: his vocal stylings on Trap Queen and RGF Island are far closer to Mavado than they are Max B, Westwood is currently making excellent use of Trap Queen in his sets as the ideal transitional record between rap and bashment, and RGF Island sounds like it'd be best experienced as you're stood on Jamaica's Blue Mountain peak busting 2 semi-automatic weapons into the sky in orgasmic joy like you're Stitches in the Brick In Yo' Face video.

Fetty Wap - RGF Island

Linked this one in passing twice now but it definitely deserves a post of its own, dunnit?

A Fetty Wap/Popcaan song is something i'd like.
