Rapper Fetty Wap has spoken out for the first time since his arrest in October. The rapper is facing 20 years in federal prison on drug charges but has remained defiant stating ‘If it ain’t life, it ain’t forever’.
He has since been released on a $500,000 bond, but is facing accusations that he was responsible for running a drug ring based out of Long Island. If convicted, he could face life in prison. Fetty spoke out in an Instagram post reflecting on loyalty.
“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,” he wrote.
He also added that he was positive about his sentence.
“Head up like a nose bleed #ImOnBorrowedTime if it ain’t life it ain’t forever I’ll be back better wiser and smarter,” wrote Fetty.
The New Jersey-based rapper was ultimately charged with dealing heroin, fentanyl and drugs as well as carrying and using firearms.
He was arrested last month ahead of his performance at Rolling Loud in New York.
According to federal reports on the case, Fetty and his alleged drug ring had been responsible for trafficking over 100 kilos of opioids, crack, and cocaine from the West Coast to be sold in Long Island.
After his arrest, the FBI recovered $1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, 2 kilograms of heroin, fentanyl pills, two 9mm handguns, a rifle, a .45 caliber pistol, a .40 caliber pistol and ammunition.
