In his first interview since his incarceration, Fetty Wap attributed his decision to resort to drug trafficking to being fearful of appearing to have “fallen off” after his musical success and income had begun to dwindle.

“It was like, I’m being honest with myself, you know what I’m sayin’? Like, aight, the music wasn’t really doin’ that good. I’m putting out music, but nobody’s payin’ attention,” he said at the time. “So… I’m a go back to what I know how to do. Instead of pursuing my career harder or going harder to make people listen, I was a coward. If I’m fallin’ off, f**k it, I ain’t about to look like it. I was a coward for that.”
