It's been a tough run for Fetty.  

In 2020, his brother Twyshon Depew, was shot and killed in their hometown of Paterson, New Jersey at age 26.

This summer Fetty's daughter died at age four.

Now he will likely be facing many years in prison.

Update: Fetty accused of moving weight.  Here's part of the unsealed indictment from the US Justice eaDprtment.

“As alleged, the defendants transported, distributed and sold more than 100 kilograms of deadly and addictive drugs, including heroin and Fentanyl, on Long Island, deliberately contributing to the opioid epidemic that has devastated our communities and taken too many lives,” Breon Peace, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said about the case. “We will continue to work nonstop with our law enforcement partners to keep our neighborhoods safe from the scourge of dangerous drugs and gun violence.”

The pipeline of drugs in this investigation ran thousands of miles from the West Coast to the communities here in our area, contributing to the addiction and overdose epidemic we have seen time and time again tear people's lives apart," stated FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Driscoll. "The fact that we arrested a chart topping rap artist and a corrections officer as part of the conspiracy illustrates just how vile the drug trade has become. I want to commend the work of our Long Island Gang Task Force and our law enforcement partners for working day in and day out to get these deadly drugs off our streets.”
