Fetty Wap is a heartening hip-hop success story. He's a one-eyed kid from Paterson, New Jersey, whose voice sounds like someone Auto-Tuned a wounded Tauntaun, but the underdog charisma of hits like "My Way" and "Trap Queen" has turned him into one of this year's most endearing breakout stars. That same likability is all over his debut album. With a set list running up to 20 songs, it borders on Fetty overkill, but there are plenty of fine moments you haven't heard yet. Fetty saves his best self for soft-hued jams like "Rewind" and "D.A.M." "Would you like it if I kissed you now?" he asks one lucky queen-to-be. Pucker up, world. This is a trap lord with a heart of gold.
