Oakland Tragedy Reminds Fetty Wap Young Artists Need Protection Too

EXCLUSIVE

Fetty Wap remembers his struggling days, and while he avoided tragedy like the Oakland fire -- he knows exactly how up and coming acts can fall victim to disastrous venues.

Fetty told us all the safety measures his crew takes when he performs -- he admits there are a lot because he has one eye. It's all good now, but he hasn't forgotten what it was like in his early days.

He has some advice for more established acts -- don't forget the little people on your way up the ladder. Clearly, the deadly fire during an EDM rave has him thinking.
