A few months ago, reports surfaced that Fetty Wap’s 4-year-old daughter Lauren Maxwell has passed away . The rapper’s daughter from Paterson is said to have gone from life to death in her sleep and recently he took the time to talk about this huge loss, noting that it put him in a dark mood as the news came within weeks. only after his 30th birthday.
Five months have passed since the death of her daughter
In an Instagram Live held this week with Fat Joe , Fetty went into the details of the heartbreaking loss he suffered, as most of the details were withheld following the news of his death: ” I lost my daughter on June 24. I received this phone call at 12:36 pm I will never forget this day in my life. I was in Miami at this Cuban place I go, ordered my favorite meal. At 12:36 p.m., I saw my baby’s mother’s number appear on my phone. At the time, we didn’t really get along, so I was like, “Oh, I’m going to see my baby”. I’m about to see my daughter. And when I answered the phone, she looked at me, and when she looked at me, I was like ‘What’s up?’. She lowered her head, and I hung up the phone saying, “No, what’s wrong? “. Then she called me back and I saw the tears flow and I said, ‘Come here right now, come here now. Then she showed me the police officer and he said, ‘I’m sorry’ . “
Fetty Wap said he took the news very badly, as it came just weeks after he turned 30. However, even with grief, he still feels that his daughter is watching over him: “ Nothing in my life could ever be this bad. This is the worst thing that has happened to me in my life. I say that to say that I still have my head held high. I was in a really dark place after that. It was two weeks after my 30th birthday. I turned 30 on June 7 and my daughter died on June 24. I wondered why. I tried to tell myself that someone else had done this. Even today, I take refuge in a dark place, but I know that she is smiling with me, I know that she is looking at me. I know she looks at me and says, “Daddy, everything is going to be fine, everything is going to be fine “.
As a reminder, the ” My Way ” singer has been trying to move forward in the meantime, releasing his comeback studio album The Butterfly Effect last month. Let’s take stock of the criticisms related to this project.

The new album ” The Butterfly Effect ” took six years to arrive, a long period of marriage, divorce, trial and mourning. Two mixtapes attempted to fill that void, but it felt like the landscape was shifting, as Fetty for reasons fans struggled to understand stalled.
The Butterfly Effect attempts to reignite this creative engine, and although it is intermittently effective, Fetty Wap is struggling to get her career back on track. “Out The Hood” and “The Truth” are a punchy opening duet, but the record runs out of steam very quickly, with songs like “That’s Facts” and “Talk My Shit” failing to ignite.
In fact, Fetty Wap’s focus on reclaiming lost ground only underscores the delay he has taken. With titles such as “Remember Me” and “They Know My Name”, the New Jersey artist seems to clearly explain the problem: ” the rap pantheon has changed, with entire genres that have since developed and collapsed. the release of his first album “.
The flagship titles of the opus, such as ” My Way ” and ” Queen ” are worth discovering, but ” The Butterfly Effect ” struggles to maintain its grip on the audience. Ironically, for a project whose title nods to chaos theory, it is too predictable, too sure, and too ordinary, attributes that few people would have faulted with Fetty Wap during his rise, but which he will have. hard to come undone.
