Fetty Wap is now facing life in prison after receiving drug distribution and firearm charges. This stemming from his arrest prior to performing at Rolling Loud in October. As the possibility of a lifetime behind bars looms closer, Fetty Wap made the decision to speak about how he’s coping.
Fetty on potential prison sentence.
Fetty Wap remains hopeful despite the bleak outlook, according to his recent Instagram post. He didn’t just speak with hope in his post but with a realistic perspective of his situation.
“Head up like a nosebleed #ImOnBorrowedTime if it ain’t life it ain’t forever I’ll be back better wiser and smarter.”
It is always the hope that one learns from their life experiences and walks away with a clear understanding of their mistakes.
Fetty Wap demonstrates a show of maturity in his acceptance of what is to come.
According to the performer’s recent statements, he knows he will serve time. However, he holds out hope he will not be sentenced to the full extent of the law.
Fetty’s Word of Wisdom for Others.
Despite his predicament, Fetty still found time in his message to offer a bit of advice to others. His advice was as follows,
“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!”
One thing is sure; he is spitting truth.
But the best advice is the advice you attempt to live by.
Unfortunately, now the time has come for Fetty to pay the piper.
As rollingout.com notes,
According to the federal indictment, he and five other men are part of a drug distribution ring that conspired together to sell more than 100 kilograms of narcotics–including heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and crack cocaine–across Long Island and New Jersey.
That is only part of what law enforcement found.
“Search warrants also uncovered a large stash of drugs, $1.5 million in cash, two 9mm handguns, a rifle, a .45 caliber pistol, a .40 caliber pistol, and ammunition.”
And these findings are nothing to sneeze at. And so, it is safe to conclude the odds are not in Fetty Wap’s favor.
Fetty Wap’s story is a sad and cautionary tale. Because seeing promise wasted is always saddening. But now, all one can hope is he learns and uses this experience to rise to his greatest potential.
Currently, Fetty Wap is out on bond and awaiting his trial. So, we will have to see how this plays out.
