Last December, Fetty Wap surprised his best friend and fellow Remy Boyz member Monty with a brand new BMW i8 worth more than $100,000. The kind Christmas gesture had pocket-watchers watching Fetty’s pockets and predicting bankruptcy in his future.
Forbes is a little bit more optimistic, however, placing the Rapper atop their 2016 Hip-Hop Cash Princes list based on his earning potential as a top rapper. While nobody really knows the state of Zoovier’s financial affairs, he did open up about one of his hustles in a new Interview.
Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah picked Fetty’s brain for Interview Magazine and got him to reveal that when he’s not in the studio and singing off-key, he’s learning the stock game. “I’m big into stocks,” Fetty revealed. “I’ve invested in a lot of stocks. One day, I was talking to my accountant, and he was like, ‘Yo, what if I could turn a million dollars into $20 million?'” That actually sounds like the beginning of every investment scam ever, but Fetty’s accountant was serious and helped teach Zoovier how to flip his money.
“The next day he was at my house,” Fetty continued. “My leg was broken, we were on the computer, looking at it, like, ‘I don’t understand none of this stuff.’ And he breakin’ it down, like, ‘Yo, this is trade values, this is stock minutes, this is going to go up, this is going to drop down. You’ve got to know when to sell, when to trade, when to buy.’ And I was catching on … And now that’s what I do in my free time.”
Hopefully daytrading pans out for the father of two because his expenses sound like he’s on the path to MC Hammering himself. “We got about 17 members in the squad, seven apartments, and 12 cars that you got to pay for. And those aren’t even my cars. All my cars is paid for. I own five of my cars-I’m paying for my boys’ cars, my mom’s car, my sister’s car, my brother’s car, my mom’s Rent, my sister’s rent, my rent, my car, my other car…” Yikes.
