Fetty Wap Speaks Out After Arrest on Federal Drug Charges
Fetty Wap breaks his silence.
Following his arrest on federal drug charges last month, the “Trap Queen” rapper is speaking out for the first time.
In an Instagram post on Thursday, Fetty alluded to his arrest while remaining resilient.
“Loyalty can be both a great trait and a deadly one … choose wisely with who you stand with but never change what you stand for Never bend Never Fold … Head up like a nose bleed #ImOnBorrowedTime if it ain’t life it ain’t forever,” he wrote in his caption.
Fetty was arrested at Citi Field in New York City on Oct. 28, just before he was scheduled to hit the stage at Rolling Loud New York. The indictment charged Fetty with one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances.
He has pleaded not guilty and was released from jail on $500,000 bond.
“I’ll be back better wiser and smarter,” added Fetty, who faces life in prison if convicted.
Federal prosecutors allege that Fetty, along with five others, distributed more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, fentanyl, heroin, and crack cocaine across New Jersey and Long Island. The feds claim the drugs were first obtained on the West Coast and were smuggled to the East Coast via USPS vehicles with secret compartments.
During the investigation, the feds obtained $1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, 2 kilograms of heroin, fentanyl pills, pistols, handguns, and a rifle.
Just days before his arrest, Fetty released his 17-track album The Butterfly Effect.
