Last year, Fetty Wap pled guilty in federal court to conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine.

He will face between five and nine years when sentenced.

His lawyers are pushing for the minimum of five.

In new filings, Fetty's legal team says he turned to dealing drugs so he could help out everyone around him.

“What makes this case unusual is Mr. Maxwell’s motivation,” his lawyers wrote. “Personal gain was not his motivation. Rather, he was motivated by his commitment to financially support others. He now realizes that he does not have to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders. Suddenly it felt like life was going in reverse and he became ashamed when he began to struggle to keep up the lifestyle that he created for so many. His judgment became impaired. Desperate to keep up with his financial obligations, Mr. Maxwell became involved in the instant offense for a few months in the spring of 2020.”

We'll see if that works.
