The Kansas City Royals Love 'Trap Queen' More Than You

Fetty Wap said, "Hey, what's up? Hello?" to the team on Tuesday.

Fetty Wap and his song "Trap Queen" have been inescapable this summer. It's a runaway hit (peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in May), infecting bars, radio stations and even MLB ballparks

One MLB team took their love of "Trap Queen" to the next level on Tuesday night. Fetty Wap, in Kansas City to perform a Wednesday night concert, visited the Royals. 

All summer long, the Kansas City Royals have been embracing the catchy love song like no other squad, using it as walk-up music, but also in their interviews. 

At the beginning of "Trap Queen," Fetty Wap sings "1738" to call out his New Jersey-based rap crew, The Remy Boyz 1738, named after the pricey cognac. These numbers have been critical to the well-being and wallets of Royals players this summer, but it's confused the hell out of out-of-touch reporters and Royals coaches. 

The Royals truly gave new meaning to the "Trap Queen" line, "everybody hating, we just call them fans though." There isn't another sports team out there more deserving of Fetty Wap's presence. They've brought a trap love ballad written just outside of Newark, New Jersey, to the heart of middle America and for that, they're hip-hop heroes.
