American rapper Willie Junior Maxwell II, also known as Fetty Wap, has been sentenced to six years in prison for transnational drug trafficking.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York announced the news in a statement Wednesday.
The 31-year-old rapper pleaded guilty in August to one drug conspiracy charge, admitting to being part of a large-scale trafficking scheme involving at least 500 grams of cocaine or more, The Guardian reported.
The charge carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison.
Prosecutors charged Fetty Wap and four of his accomplices with participating in a drug ring that trafficked heroin, fentanyl and crack cocaine in New York and New Jersey.
Four other defendants have also pleaded guilty and are still awaiting sentencing.
