Fetty Wap Pleads Guilty In Federal Drug Case

Last October, Fetty Wap was arrested by the Federal Bureau Investigation just hours before his performance at Rolling Loud: New York after being accused of smuggling over 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine across Long Island and New Jersey via USPS vehicles with secret compartments.

As the investigation developed, the FBI also obtained “$1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, 2 kilograms of heroin, fentanyl pills, pistols, handguns and a rifle,” according to TMZ.

Fetty Wap, born William Maxwell, appeared in court Monday, August 22, and pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine. Maxwell’s co-defendants, Robert Leonardi and Anthony Cyntje, also pleaded guilty to the same charges, and face additional firearm charges.

The “Trap Queen” rapper remains in custody after his $500,000 bail was revoked following a recent arrest for allegedly threatening to kill someone on a Facetime call back in December. He faces a mandatory five years in prison.

Ben Feuerherd on Twitter: “Outside of court, Fetty’s attorney says: “He is NOT cooperating. I want that to be very, very clear. This is a standard plea.” / Twitter”
