Fetty Wap’s eye is as memorable as each of his chart-topping Billboard hits. While the NJ native definitely has an ear for catchy hooks and melodies, his unique look has definitely helped his legend in the making grow. Before Fetty Wap popped off, a prosthetic eye was almost invisible in mainstream idea and one can even argue that the rapper/singer made the disability cool in a sense.

One of Fetty Wap’s young fans seems to agree with the artist’s image looking cool. Meet Jayden, a kid who like the Remy Boy, suffered an injury that forced him to wear a prosthetic eye growing up. After being inspired by Fetty Wap, the tiny hip-hop fan has decided to live life without his prosthetic eye.

(Warning: long sentimental post ahead) Today I am forever thankful to a young man named Willie Maxwell aka Fetty Wap. While his music is catchy (not always agree with his lyrics but hey who am I to judge…), I'm not necessarily his fan (although Trap Queen is my jam), BUT today I'm his biggest fan. Many close friends, and of course our family know that Jayden was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma at the age of 1. In result of that he had his right eye removed 2 weeks after his 1st bday. He's worn a prosthetic eye since then. He has always been terrified of taking it out and would not be caught without it…and then comes along Fetty Wap… Similar to Jayden he lost an eye at a young age and along the way he decided that he didn't want to wear his prosthetic eye anymore, so he stopped. Jayden, let it be known, is a Fetty Wap fan, a real fan, not like me ha! Well, today, after weeks of asking, Jayden is venturing the world without his prosthetic. I of course am a wreck because this world can be cruel, but so proud of our Boogies. This young rapper unknowingly gave Jayden something we weren't able to give him-the confidence to be different- and I am grateful to him. Thanks to Fetty Wap for saying F the world this is me, and for helping make our baby boy just a little more remarkable than he already is. And we'll be purchasing his album, a small thank you to him for changing Jayden's life forever. #oneeyeandawesome #jaydenismyhero #thankyoufettywap @fettywap1738
