Fetty Wap

Fetty Wap, the renowned New Jersey rapper and singer, has recently surfaced in prison photos that showcase his resilience and spirit while serving time behind bars. These images, shared by media personality and artist manager Wack 100, offer a glimpse into the artist’s life within the confines of the federal yard.

In the photos, Fetty Wap can be seen donning a gray long-sleeve shirt paired with a matching knit hat and sweatpants, complemented by fresh white sneakers and a stylish black watch. The rapper’s distinctive style remains intact, even in the midst of his incarceration.

Wack 100, who manages artists like The Game and Blueface, expressed his admiration for Fetty Wap’s strength in his Instagram caption, stating, “Looks like @fettywap1738 holding up pretty well on the federal yard. Just got these sent to me from his team. Salute #Itchy & the #NJ rusta’s.”

Among the comments, one fan humorously remarked, “In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is king,” alluding to Fetty’s congenital glaucoma eye condition, highlighting the artist’s enduring sense of humor.

Fetty Wap’s journey to incarceration began last year when he faced charges of possession and conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, including cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl. These allegations led to his arrest in August 2022, with his bail being revoked after alleged threats involving a firearm during a FaceTime call.

Ultimately, Fetty Wap, born Willie Maxwell II, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. Prosecutors argued for a more extended sentence, citing his influence in the music industry and the potential glamorization of the drug trade through his music, particularly after the success of his hit “Trap Queen” in 2015.

“Young people who admire the defendant and are considering selling drugs need to be sent a message that selling drugs is not a glamorous lifestyle and, if they participate in that trade, they will receive lengthy prison sentences,” said Breon Peace

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District, Breon Peace, emphasized the importance of sending a message to young people about the consequences of drug involvement, advocating for a sentence ranging from seven to nine years. Fetty Wap received a six-year sentence.

The rapper’s initial arrest took place at New York City’s Citi Field in October 2021, just as he was preparing to perform at the Rolling Loud Festival. He was accused of participating in an extensive drug ring on Long Island, allegedly facilitating the trafficking of over 100 kilograms of opioids, crack, and cocaine from the West Coast to be distributed in Long Island.

Following his arrest, the FBI seized substantial quantities of narcotics, firearms, and a significant amount of cash, underscoring the seriousness of the charges he faced.
