Rapper Fetty Wap has been allegedly involved in a shootout in New Jersey. The shootout happened just this weekend resulting to three people getting injured.

Fetty Wap Gets Entangled With Shootout

Popular rapper Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, has allegedly been involved in a shootout in his hometown, Paterson, New Jersey. The shootout erupted early in the morning last Sunday at a 24-hour local deli. The said shootout was said to be caused by a heated altercation between Fetty Wap and his longtime rival, Raheem Thomas.

The altercation led to a shootout that left three people injured, with one man being struck by a weapon. However, it has been confirmed that the injuries were not fatal. Thomas has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault along with possession of three firearms offenses. Thomas has also been caught wearing Fetty Wap’s stolen 1738 chain but Thomas has denied stealing this. Paterson Deputy Police Chief Troy Oswald has verified that though Fetty Wap was involved in the shootout, he is not a suspect in the recent shootout in Paterson nor in the robbery.

Long-Time Rivalry Between Two Artists

The long time rivalry between Fetty Wap and Raheem Thomas has reportedly been going on for a long time. Though they have tried to keep the cap on it, Thomas’s uploaded photo with the Fetty Wap’s stolen chain may have just been the last straw, causing the dispute between the two artists. Thomas is a local rap artist and it has been reported that he released a diss track back in January that attacked Fetty Wap.

The said diss song featured another local artist named Justin Pope, who goes by the name P. Dice. Pope used to be a member of Fetty Wap’s group, which they called Remy Boyz. Fetty Wap or his representative has not released any official statement regarding this matter but the artist has recently updated his official Twitter account with posts that may refer to the recent incident.
