Rapper Fetty Wap was denied bail during a virtual arraignment at a federal lockup in Central Islip, New York on Friday.

Wap was arrested Thursday, ahead of his performance at the Rolling Loud Music Festival New York. The “Trap Queen” rapper was taken into custody by FBI agents at the Citi Field stadium in Queens.

The New Jersey native was charged in a conspiracy to sell heroin, crack cocaine and fentanyl in California and the New York area.

He allegedly used private jets in his role as a trafficking “redistributor.”

The artist, born William Junior Maxwell II, was one of six men indicted by prosecutors in Brooklyn, the US justice department said in a statement on Friday.

Prosecutors claim Wap, along with five others, trafficked more than 100 kilograms of heroin, fentanyl and crack cocaine from the west coast and sold the deadly drugs in New Jersey and Long Island, according to the New York Post.

One of his alleged associates, Anthony Cyntje, is a New Jersey corrections officer.

The 30-year-old father-of-7 was born with glaucoma in both eyes. Doctors were unable to save his left eye.

Wap faces life in prison if convicted.
