In case you missed it, Fetty Wap has recently inspired a young fan with retinoblastoma to embrace his condition and remove his prosthetic eye. In a conversation with Live Nation TV, the New Jersey artist opens up about his decision of going without a prosthetic eye earlier in his life and his experience of recounting being bullied after removing it. The clip is part of Live Nation TV’s upcoming Roadhouse documentary, called From Rookie to Royalty: On Tour With Fetty Wap. The full video features an in-depth interview with Fetty in his tour bus and focuses on the story on how he became the hottest rookie artist of the year with three concurrent hit singles in the Billboard Top 11 — an achievement not shared since the Beatles. The full episode arrives tomorrow, October 30, on Apple Music and November 5 on YouTube.
