According to The New York Times, Rapper Fetty Wap has been sentenced to six years for Federal drug charges.

The New Jersey rapper was arrested in October 2021 for allegedly transporting 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl from the West Coast back to NJ.

Per Fetty’s lawyers request, they asked the judge for a 5 year sentence if the rapper was found guilty.

The Trap Queen rapper expressed financial issues to the judge, “Suddenly it felt like life was going in reverse and he became ashamed when he began to struggle o keep up the lifestyle that he created for so many.”

Per Insider, prosecutors argued he should serve at least seven years and three months because he did not need to supplement income from music with drug trafficking money. “He had a lucrative career as a rap artist and the ability to make an honest living and provide for himself and his family,” the sentencing memo said. “Indeed the defendant told the Probation Department that he made $5 million during his music career. Nevertheless, this defendant chose to supplement his income by trafficking large quantities of drugs — drugs he knew would ruin lives.”
