American rapper, Willie Junior Maxwell II, better known as Fetty Wap, has pleaded guilty to one federal count of conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances.
Fetty Wap is now facing a minimum of five years in prison and a maximum of 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine in a Long Island court on Monday, 22nd August 2022.
A representative for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York confirmed the news.
According to prosecutors, the Trap Queen rapper “distributed more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine across Long Island and New Jersey.”
