On July 31st, Fetty Wap paid a tribute to daughter Lauren during his Rolling Loud performance. Shortly after this, his baby mama Turquoise confirmed that their child had passed away.
Willie Junior Maxwell, better known by his stage name Fetty Wap, shot to fame when he released his track Trap Queen in 2014 which reached number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
The 30-year-old rapper from New Jersey then signed a record deal with 300 Entertainment and Atlantic Records, releasing two more top ten singles, 679 and My Way.
Last week, Fetty confirmed the heartbreaking news that his daughter Lauren, whom she had with ex-girlfriend Turquoise Miami, had passed away.

Fetty Wap and Turquoise’s daughter, Lauren, had passed away at the age of 4.
