Royals slip Fetty Wap references into postgame interviews

Wednesday July 29th, 2015

The Royals have a nine-game lead in the AL Central as of Wednesday morning and all that winning has created a loose clubhouse, which encourages to all sorts of hijinks.

On Tuesday, players who did not work the numbers 17 and 38 into their postgame interviews were issued fines. The digits are a reference to rapper Fetty Wap, whose summer hit “Trap Queen,” along with many of his other songs, features the numbers, which reference his Remy Boyz 1738 group.

The numbers popped up in several quotes on Tuesday, according to The Kansas City Star's Andy McCullough.

The challenge seems to have originated with Lorenzo Cain, who has been using “Trap Queen” as his walk up music.
