Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” Translated Into English For Those Of You Completely Lost

Trap Queen, Fetty Wap, Onyx Truth

Welp…it finally happened today.  The day I’ve been dreading since the 90s era.  Today it finally happened.

Today while out enjoying my lunch break eating pears & shit cause a brotha trying to lose a lil weight, a coworker of mines came out to join me on this ridiculously hot ass day.  So as I’m out there chilling & shit eating my pears & shit while chugging a 40 oz of water, this young dude pulled up in the parking lot bumping Fetty Wap’s Trap Queen song.  After this young guy parked his car in the parking spot he continued to let the song play till it ended.  As I’m eating my pears & shit I found myself nodding my head to the beat because quite frankly, the song is catchy as hell.  I noticed my coworker looking at the young guy in the car then he looked over at me with this confused look on his face.  Being that it was about 299.98 degrees outside my first thought was that my coworker was experiencing a heat stroke and maybe he wanted a sip from my 40 oz of aqua…but if that was case, then he was just going to have to pass out cause I was not about to share that frosty bottle of water…fuxx outta here.

So anyways the Fetty Wap song ends, the young guy emerges from his car and walks off to the building.  My coworker then looks back at me again with the same dazed & confused look and says:

“What in the hell was all of that mumbo jumbo?  Do you understand any of that bippety bop foolishness?”

That’s code for:  “What in the fuck was that guy on the song saying?”

You see, my coworker is a white guy if you haven’t figured it out by now.  He’s in his early 40s & more than likely he honestly has no clue what in the hell Fetty Wap was saying in that song.  But that’s not the surprising part to me.  The surprising part is that he looked at me as if I was automatically supposed to translate the lyrics on the spot for him…probably because I was the only brotha around for a good 200 feet.  At first my initial reaction was to hit him with my timeless classic “IS IT BECAUSE I’M BLACK?!”  But then I realized I wasn’t 100% sure my damn self as to what Fetty Wap was saying…so here we are.

I’m going to begin a new series of translating the lyrics of some of the most popular rap songs that are out so everybody over the age of 30, regardless of race, doesn’t feel like the ole fuddy-duddy who just doesn’t get it…even though most of us don’t.  So to start this series off, we’re going to break down the lyrics to “Trap Queen” line-by-line so that we all can be on the same level of understanding the next time we hear this song blaring from the speakers.

Trap Queen by Fetty Wap

Translation:

“Girlfriend of a Drug Dealer” by Not Sure What The Fuck a Fetty Wap is

[Intro]

Remy Boyz, yeaahhhh
1738

Translation:

I’m publicly recognizing the group of people I hang around with….because I’m excited
1738 (not sure exactly what that means) but in the military it stands for 5:38 p.m.

[Bridge]

I’m like “hey, what’s up hello”
Seen yo pretty ass soon as you came in the door
I just wanna chill, got a sack for us to roll
Married to the money, introduced her to my stove
Showed her how to whip it, now she’s remixin’ for low
She my trap queen, let her hit the bando
We be countin’ up, watch how far them bands go
We just a goal, talkin’ matchin’ Lambos
At 56 a gram, 5 a 100 grams though
Man, I swear I love her how she work the damn pole
Hit the strip club, we be letting bands go
Everybody hating, we just call them fans though
In love with the money, I ain’t never letting go.

Translation:

Excuse me miss, hello.  How are you doing?
I noticed how beautiful you were the moment you walked through the door.
I’m not really trying to bother you too much my lady.  But would you be interested in smoking some marijuana with me?
I love making money so much that I’ve decided to show my new lady friend how to make money like me.
I have shown her how to engage in illegal activities by properly preparing illegal substances that are known for helping to tear my community apart.
She is now officially my girlfriend and she is welcome to come by the abandoned house I operate my illegal business enterprise out of.
Together, my girlfriend & I are currently becoming more financially successful in this illegal business venture.
As we get more financially successful in this illegal business venture, we plan to indulge in the fruits of our labors by purchasing his & her exotic Italian cars known as the Lamborghini.
I cannot divulge exactly what this part of my illegal business venture is.  Just know that these are trade secrets.
I just love my girlfriend because not only is she my illegal business partner, she is also an exotic dancer.
When we go out to social spots, due to our tremendous financial success from our illegal business venture, we spend a lot of money to celebrate.
During the midst of our celebrations, we encounter a lot of unsuccessful people who are jealous. But we prefer to say they admire the hard work we do and they desire to be just like us one day.
We love the financial gains from our illegal business venture so much that we have no current plans of stopping anytime soon.

[Hook]

And I get high with my baby
I just left the mall, I’m gettin’ fly with my baby, yeah
And I can ride with my baby
I be in the kitchen cookin’ pies with my baby, yeah
And I can ride with my baby
I just left the mall, I’m gettin’ fly with my baby, yeah
And I can ride with my baby
I be in the kitchen cookin’ pies with my baby.

Translation:

I like to smoke marijuana with my girlfriend
My girlfriend & I are now just leaving the mall after going on a shopping trip to buy nice, new, cool clothing…and I’m excited
I trust my girlfriend so much, she is like one of my closest friends
My girlfriend & I work side by side together in our illegal business venture…and I’m excited
I trust my girlfriend so much, she is like one of my closest friends
I repeat, my girlfriend & I are now just leaving the mall after going on a shopping trip to buy nice, new, cool clothing…and I’m excited
I trust my girlfriend so much, she is like one of my closest friends
My girlfriend & I work side by side together in our illegal business venture…and I’m excited

[Verse 1]

I hit the strip with my trap queen cause all we know is bands
I just might snatch up a ‘Rari and buy my boo a Lamb’
I might just snatch her a necklace, drop a couple on a ring
She ain’t wantin’ for nothin’ because I got her everything
It’s big ZooWap from the bando, without dinero I can’t go
Remy Boyz got the stamp, though
Count up hella, them bands though
Boy how far can your bands go?
Fetty Wap I’m livin’ fifty thousand
K how I stand though, if you checkin’ for my pockets I’m like.

Translation:

I like to go exotic gentleman’s clubs with my girlfriend to celebrate our financial success from our illegal business venture.
I’m thinking about buying myself a Ferrari and my girlfriend a Lamborghini.
In addition to the cars, I’m thinking about buying my girlfriend a necklace and a very expensive ring to show her how much I adore her.
My girlfriend never has to worry about anything because I can afford to get her whatever she wants due to the extreme success of my illegal business venture.
I’m a part of business organization named Zoo and we operate our business out of an abandoned house, which is why we are so financially successful because we do not have to worry about paying a mortgage or rent on an abandoned property.
Remy Boyz are the group of people I grew up with and according to the people in the neighborhood we grew up in, we are the best at the current businesses we operate.
We are extremely financially successful.
How financially successful are you?
I’m saying my name again right here and also I have at least $50 thousand dollars in cash on me right now.
When I’m successful, this is how I do things and if you are trying to analyze how successful I am…I’ll explain it to you again.

[Verse 2]

I be smoking dope and you know Backwoods what I roll
Remy Boyz, Fetty eating shit up that’s fasho
I’ll run in ya house, then I’ll fuck your ho
Cause Remy Boyz or nothin’, Re-Re-Remy Boyz or nothin’

Translation:

I like to smoke marijuana and I prefer to smoke my marijuana in a Backwood which is an expensive tobacco leaf.
The guys I hang around with & myself are usually hungry after we smoke marijuana.
I’m so financially successful from my illegal business ventures, if I stopped by your house, your girlfriend would voluntarily have sexual relations with me.
But at the end of the day, the guys I grew up with are all the matters in life.

[Outro:  Nitt Da Gritt & Fetty Wap]

(She my trap queen)
Yeah, you hear my boy
(She my trap queen)
Soundin’ like a zillion bucks on the track
(She my trap queen)
I got whatever on my boy, whatever
(And I get high with my baby)
Put your money where your mouth is
Money on the wood make the game go good
Money out of sight causes fights
Put up or shut up, huh?
Nitt Da Gritt, RGF Productions
(ZooWap)

Translation:

Fetty Wap:  She is my illegal business partner  & girlfriend.
Nitt Da Gritt:  That singing in the background is my close friend Fetty Wap.
Fetty Wap:  She is my illegal business partner & girlfriend.
Nitt Da Gritt:  When he sings his voice is so melodic that there is literally not enough money in the world to pay him what he deserves…literally, that’s why I said a zillion bucks because it literally does not exist.
Fetty Wap:  She is my illegal business partner & girlfriend.
Nitt Da Gritt:  I will always support Fetty Wap because I believe in him, his singing talents, & his illegal business venture.
Fetty Wap:  I like to smoke marijuana with my girlfriend.
Nitt Da Gritt:  I’m talking tough guy talk now because that is what I am supposed to do at this part in the song.
Nitt Da Gritt:  I’m making money analogies to playing sports now.
Nitt Da Gritt:  People who do not have money are potentially problem starters.
Nitt Da Gritt:  More tough guy talk because that is what I am supposed to do at this part in the song.
Fetty Wap:  I’m going to publicly recognize the business organization I am a part of one last time before the song ends.

So there you have it folks.  The next time you find yourself being the only Black guy around for at least a good 200 feet on your lunch break eating pears & shit and get questioned by a 40 year old white dude on what all that bippety-bop “Trap Queen” foolishness means…now you can break it down to him in plain English line by line.

Light skin dude with an opinion
  • Now, you just need to translate some Chief Keef…hell I don’t even know what he’s saying half the time.

  • John

    1738 is a cognac. He has a bottle of it in the video.

  • Dude

    1738 is the year written on the bottles of remy they drink. with other words, it’s simply the year the type Remy Martin 1738 Accord Royal came out. He seemingly named his crew after that.
