There, Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres presented the rising rapper with the key to the city.The event attracted about 1,200 students from Fetty’s hometown. According to NJ.com, when Mayor Torres presented the Remy Boyz leader with the key, he called him “an inspiration to Paterson’s youth,” congratulating the 2015 XXL Freshman for his recent success. Although one-eyed rhymer may not have finished high school himself (he attended Eastside High School), Torres honored him for achieving his dreams. The hungry upstart is currently celebrating all of his singles sitting pretty in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart. Once the 25-year old MC hit the stage, he performed alongside the Remy Boyz. He later brought New York rapper French Montana onstage to perform a few tracks. The night was all about Paterson, with other local artists hitting the stage to perform prior to the star of the night coming out.The event was only open to Paterson’s high school students, but that didn’t stop other members of the community from looking on as well. Seeing that everyone in the city was excited to have him, Fetty Wap promised that the next time he hit Paterson, the show would allow for a much bigger audience. Also in attendance for the concert was State Senator Nellie Pou who was proud to have Fetty home. “It’s wonderful when Paterson can really shine and be able to showcase its talent,” said Pou.
