Fetty Wap’s look is a very unique one. When you think of the New Jersey singer, you likely picture his signature one-eyed facial features. While he absolutely didn’t lose an eye by choice, the recording artist’s brand profited from his look, boosting him by presenting him as a talented figure with a sense of novelty. Fetty has capitalized on people’s fascination with his look too as it has become an essential part of his presentation. During the “My Way” and “Trap Queen” days, fans became enamored with Fetty for his unique sound and one-of-a-kind appearance. Digging deep into the photo album, the rapper found a photo of himself before he lost an eye to glaucoma.
While he’s previously revealed that he lost his eye when he was six months old, Fetty shared a photo of himself from ten years ago with two working eyes. It turns out the singer had reconstructive surgery when he was 12-years-old and a few years later, he decided to stop wearing a prosthesis to differ from everybody else. Fetty accurately captioned the photo “When I had two eyes… 10 years ago.”
Becoming a part of his signature look, it’s definitely a little odd to see Fetty with two eyes. We’ve become so used to his now recognizable features that it throws us off.
Fetty Wap recently took on a few different remixes in Ella Mai’s summer smash “Boo’d Up,” and Gunna’s “Toast Up.” Check out his older look below.
