Fetty Wap has come up in new prison photos. He appears to be holding up pretty well.

Wack 100 – a media personality and manager for Blueface and The Game – posted two pictures Oct. 3 of Fetty Wap posing with his prison crew.

“Looks like @fettywap1738 is holding up pretty well on the federal yard. Just got these sent to me from his team,” Wack wrote in an Instagram caption.

A follower facetiously commented, “In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is king.”

Fetty Wap, 32, has been in custody since August 2022. He was charged with possession and conspiracy to distribute drugs including cocaine, heroin and fentanyl.

He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine.

Fetty Wap, real name Willie Maxwell II, was sentenced to six years. But prosecutors argued for a longer sentence.

“Young people who admire the defendant and are considering selling drugs need to be sent a message that selling drugs is not a glamorous lifestyle,” said Breon Peace, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District. “And if they participate in that trade, they will receive lengthy prison sentences.”

Originally, Fetty Wap was arrested in October 2021 at New York City’s Citi Field. He was about to perform at the Rolling Loud Festival.

Authorities said he allegedly ran a drug ring out of Long Island. He helped traffic more than 100 kilos of opioids, cocaine and crack from California to be distributed in Long Island.

The FBI found 16 kilos of cocaine, 2 kilos of heroin, fentanyl pills, a .40 caliber pistol, two 9mm pistols, a rifle, ammunition and $1.5 million in cash.
