Fetty Wap sentenced to 6 years in prison for drug trafficking

Rapper Willie Junior Maxwell II, known by his stage name Fetty Wap, has been sentenced to six years in prison for drug trafficking.

The news of the rapper’s sentencing was announced by the United States Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York, who explained that the musician was a member of an organisation that distributed more than 100kg of cocaine, heroine, fentanyl and crack cocaine across Long Island and New Jersey.

‘Earlier today, in federal court in Central Islip, United States District Judge Joanna Seybert sentenced William Junior Maxwell II, who is the rap artist known as “Fetty Wap,” to six years’ imprisonment and five years of post-release supervision for conspiracy to distribute cocaine,’ the press release read.

Last year, it was reported that the 31-year-old had been jailed after allegedly threatening to kill a man while making a FaceTime call in 2021.

In August 2022, the prosecutor’s office outlined that he pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine.

On Wednesday May 24, Maxwell appeared before Judge Joanna Seybert at the federeal court in Central Islip, New York, the New York Times reported.
