Fetty Wap, a self-made rapper from Paterson, NJ, now has two Billboard Top 10 hits.

Fetty Wap gained widespread fame for his 2014 hit single, "Trap Queen," which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 list in May 2015. Now, Fetty Wap's other single, "My Way" has also made it into the top 10 while "Trap Queen," which several other artists, such as Kanye West have praised, is still on the list at No. 6.

"My Way" is currently No. 7 after being on the Billboard chart for just three weeks. The new ranking is a drastic difference from last week's No. 87 spot. "My Way" also has had a lot of success on YouTube. The song has gotten more than 52 million views. Fetty Wap's other song, "679" is currently ranked 18.

Fetty Wap is the first rapper to have two singles in the Billboard Top 10 at the same time since Lil Wayne did it in 2011. Lil Wayne's singles were "She Will" and "How to Love." Fetty Wap is also the first rapper to have three songs in the Billboard Top 20 since Eminem accomplished that feat with "The Monster," Rap God" and "Berzerk" in 2013.

"Trap Queen" has been nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards. Most recently, Hollywood actress Kate Hudson and her son, Ryder, danced to the addictive tune.

Fetty Wap only started making music about two years ago. After starting out as a rapper, he made the decision to add singing as well because he "wanted to do something different." Although Fetty Wap's music has generated a lot of buzz, he has also received a lot of attention for his missing left eye.

One rumor claimed that he lost his eye because of a firework accident. Another rumor stated that he lost it because of a shotgun blast. Fetty Wap has clarified what happened to his left eye. He explained in an interview that he had congenital glaucoma as a child and the doctors were not able to save his left eye.

Fetty Wap is currently with 300 Entertainment.
