In a sincere Facebook post, Jayden’s mother thanked Fetty for giving her son courage, writing, “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.”

Since then, Fetty Wap met with young Jayden backstage at his Monster Outbreak Energy Tour stop in Denver, and People published a pic of the meeting. “I’m happy I got to meet Jayden and his family," Fetty told People. "He is a really cool kid!”
