FILE - In this April 12, 2015, file photo, Fetty Wap poses in the press room at the MTV Movie Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Wap has had an unprecedented amount of success without the release of an album: The rapper-singer is enjoying another week with two songs in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (a third track sits in the Top 20), he’s on tour with Chris Brown and he even surprised Taylor Swift’s audience at one of her recent shows with his ubiquitous hit, “Trap Queen.” After much anticipation, Wap is finally ready to release his debut album on Sept. 25, 2015, just days before the deadline for Grammy eligibility.
