Fetty Wap’s rise to fame was one for the history books. From having four records in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, to scoring a #1 on his debut album, to everything in between, the New Jersey star made his mark on hip-hop and set himself up for a long and successful career.

We caught up with Fetty for our new “Since Day One” series to find out that one person, who he could say meant the most to him since the beginning. From a career standpoint, that person is his best friend and collaborative artist Monty.

Monty was not only featured on many of Fetty’s successful records, but he was the one grinding it out with the hitmaker way before the fancy jewelry and nationwide tours. It’s always nice to enjoy the fruits of your labor, but it’s even better when you have someone to celebrate it with — especially someone who struggled with you “since day one”.
