Fetty Wap pleaded guilty to a charge that brings a minimum sentence of 5 years in prison on Monday, admitting his responsibility in an interstate, multi-million dollar drug trafficking plan.
The hip-hop artist, real name Willie Maxwell II, 31, pleaded guilty in federal court in Central Islip, Long Island, to a single count of conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams of cocaine before Judge Steven I. Locke.
“I agreed with other people to distribute cocaine,” he told the judge.
He went on to say that the weight was at least 500 grams and that some of the actions took place in Suffolk County.
When asked what he wanted to plead, the “Trap Queen” rapper said, “Guilty.” According to Locke, the charge has a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison and a minimum mandatory of 5 years. There was no immediate date set for sentencing.
