New Jersey rapper, Fetty Wap, was sentenced to six years in federal prison on Wednesday for trafficking narcotics.

The rapper’s given name is Willie Junior Maxwell II.

His bail was revoked last August after prosecutors said he displayed a firearm and threatened to kill someone on a video call. Fetty Wap subsequently pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine.

He and five co-defendants were accused of accused of conspiring to possess and distribute more than 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of heroin, fentanyl and crack cocaine.

The guilty plea on the cocaine speared him a potential life sentence if found guilty on the other drug charges.

Before his sentence was handed down on Wednesday the rapper apologised for his actions and said he was exactly where he’s supposed to be.

His lawyers suggested he turned to selling drugs because of financial hardships during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The rapper is best known for the 2015 single Trap Queen.
