Fetty Wap Says He's Not Haitian + He Takes Us On a Tour of His Old NJ Neighborhood (Video)

Is Fetty Wap Haitian?

If you follow Fetty's Instagram page: @fettywap1738 you'll see plenty of photos of him rocking the Haitian flag bandana around his forehead.

Wikipedia also says he was "raised in a housing project in Paterson, New Jersey, and is of Haitian descent." But then again, this is Wikipedia.

In the video below, Fetty says he's not Haitian. Watch:

Soooo, he's Haitian by association?

Fetty says he started wearing the Haitian flag bandanas for his grandmother and throughout the process of him wearing it, people started asking if he was Haitian. He said he fell in love with the culture.

Fetty has hit it big time within the past year, but he hasn't forgotten where he came from. In a new episode of Civil TV's Welcome To My Neighborhood, the "Trap Queen" rapper takes us through his hometown in Jersey while telling stories of his upbringing.

Fetty is eternally thankful to his block for shaping who he is, both as a person and as an artist.

"I just feel good to be an artist from Jersey.. to be one of the hottest artists from Jersey," Fetty says in the video.
