Willie Junior Maxwell II, also known as rapper Fetty Wap, was sentenced Wednesday to six years in prison charges after pleading guilty to drug charges.
The 31-year-old rapper from Paterson was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision for conspiracy to distribute.
Officials say Maxwell was a member of an organization that distributed more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl and crack cocaine across New Jersey and Long Island.
Court filings say the organization distributed more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, heroin, fentanyl and crack cocaine across New Jersey and Long Island from June 2019 through June 2020.
The "Trap Queen" rapper pleaded guilty last August to conspiracy to distribute nearly 500 grams of cocaine. In March 2023, Maxwell’s co-defendant Anthony Cyntje, a New Jersey correction officer, was sentenced to 72 months' imprisonment for his role in the drug trafficking conspiracy.
Maxwell’s remaining four co-defendants pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
