Rapper Fetty Wap pleaded guilty on Monday, Aug. 22, to a conspiracy drug charge that carries a mandatory five-year prison term.

The 31-year-old admitted his role in the massive drug trafficking row, moving drugs from the West Coast to Long Beach, the Hollywood Reporter reported.

This comes not long after the rapper’s $500,000 bond was revoked two weeks ago by US Magistrate Judge Steven Locke for reportedly threatening to kill a man during a FaceTime call in 2021. He was returned to jail with Fetty Wap, also known as Willi Junior Maxwell II, awaiting sentencing.

It was in October when the 31-year-old was arrested on charges alleging he participated in a conspiracy to smuggle large amounts of heroin, fentanyl and other drugs into the New York City area. He pleaded guilty only that the plea pertained only to cocaine.

The plea also spared him from a potential life sentence if he had been convicted on all the charges he faced. His legal representatives did not respond to comments as of this writing.

Earlier this month, Fetty Wap was arrested for threatening someone over FaceTime. The musician allegedly threatened someone on Dec. 11, 2021, and reportedly pointed the gun at the unnamed individual, saying: "Imma kill you and everybody you with" and “I’m gonna kill you.” These were statements he allegedly repeated several times during the call.

This triggered the violation of Fetty Wap’s parole terms on Nov. 5, 2021.

The rapper has a record of running into trouble. As mentioned in a previous report here on Latin Times, he was also arrested for assaulting three employees at a hotel in 2019.

Maxwell reportedly hit a parking attendant following an argument, resulting in him being arrested for three counts of battery.

Aside from that, he was also arrested in 2017 for DUI after he was caught drag racing another car along a New York City highway.
