Rapper Fetty Wap has been sentenced to six years in prison for his part in a drug smuggling conspiracy involving heroin, fentanyl and other drugs in New Jersey.
Back in August, Fetty pleaded guilty in August to conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances pertaining to cocaine, which carried a mandatory five years in prison.
Days ago, his attorney attempted to get the rapper the minimum sentence by blaming his drug dealing on the pandemic.
Elizabeth Macedonio stated, “In or about 2020, with the coming of the worldwide pandemic, things began to change for Mr. Maxwell. There were no opportunities to perform, thus his income was severely limited.” She added that the New Jersey rapper “ was sued personally, was going through a divorce, and was involved with a tour manager who was stealing from him,” adding that he “lost his grandparents and several other people who were close to him.”
The judge did not buy the attorney’s argument.
