Fetty Wap is looking on the bright side of things, following his federal drug arrest a few weeks ago. He’s facing charges for running a lucrative drug ring.
As reported on Hot New Hip Hop, the New Jersey rapper spoke out for the first time since his arrest. On social media, he said,
“Loyalty can be both a great trait and a deadly one… choose wisely with who you stand with but never change what you stand for Never bend Never Fold. Head up like a nose bleed #ImOnBorrowedTime if it ain’t life it ain’t forever I’ll be back better wiser and smarter.” Take a look:
The Jasmine Brand points out Fetty shared a video online. He said, “I just wanna say thank y’all, you know what I mean, everybody supportin’ me…and standing by my side through this s***…you already know, like I said, man. Never fold, never bend…head up like a nose bleed.” Take a look:
On October 28, Fetty was arrested at Rolling Loud New York before getting the chance to perform. The Suffolk County District Attorney/feds believe Fetty ran a lucrative drug empire coast to coast. He allegedly sold hard drugs like heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl. Photos were released of the drugs and the large amounts of cash.
