Rapper Fetty Wap was sentenced to six years in prison for drug trafficking.

The rapper, real name Willie Junior Maxwell II, has been in custody since last August when his bail was revoked.

As part of the investigation, police seized $1.5 million in cash and several weapons from a series of homes.

The rapper was arrested at the Rolling Loud music festival at Citi Field in October 2021 moments before he took the stage.

Prosecutors say he was part of a large Long Island drug ring that supplied drugs across the state.

The group used the US Postal Service to distribute the drugs, according to the original indictment.

In court, he admitted to conspiring to distribute cocaine, telling the judge: ‘I agreed with other people to distribute cocaine.

“I knew the driving was illegal.”

He pleaded guilty in August 2022 and faced up to 40 years in prison.

It is unclear whether his lawyers requested a specific facility. The prison where he will serve his sentence has not yet been assigned.
