Fetty Wap has tearfully celebrated the life of his late daughter, Lauren Maxwell, with a collage of blue emoji butterflies on Instagram Live. 

The “My Way” lyricist broke his silence on Tuesday after the 4-year-old’s tragic passing over the weekend.

“She’s good. My baby’s happy now,” said Fetty, real name Willie Junior Maxwell, 30, in his emotional social media memorial.

“My shorty,” the New Jersey rapper added before kissing a picture of Lauren smiling. “That’s my little twin right there.”

During his live-video vigil, Fetty — who skyrocketed to rock superstardom with smash single “Trap Queen” in 2014 — asked his more than 6.8 million Instagram followers to inundate his comment section with the butterflies, which were Lauren’s favorite animal. 

“If y’all could do me a favor,” said the grieving dad. “Just post all butterflies on my s–t.”

He added, “Shorty loved butterflies…and if y’all could do that, it’d mean a lot to me”

The massive response of emoji butterflies from fans caused Fetty to break down in tears. “Man, thank y’all,” the choked-up rhymer said.

“That’s love. I appreciate ya’ll, for real. Damn,” he added before wiping his weepy eyes. “That’s love. She’d be happy as hell.”

Prior to his Instagram Live post, Turquoise publicly asked fans to show Fetty — who recently became active in his daughter’s life — some compassion. 

“Send [Fetty Wap] some [blue butterfly emojis] he’s hurting y’all and needs some [uplifting] too,” she said in an Instagram Story post Tuesday.

Turquoise also explained that old videos from 2017 through 2019, which featured her complaining about co-parenting issues with the rapper, were no longer relevant. 

“Our co-parenting had improved,” she said. “And we came to a better place for Lauren.”

She went on to shame Instagram haters for “kicking” Fetty in the midst of his mourning.

“All that Y’all need to know is Lauren loved her daddy and he loved her,” Turquoise continued. “She made him laugh with her crazy funny personality and she loved to be the center of attention and he loved to be her audience.”

Fetty appeared to acknowledge Lauren’s troubling condition after his performance at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival last month.
