[NEWS] Fetty Wap’s Brother Shot & Killed

New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap is mourning his younger brother who was shot to death in their hometown of Paterson Thursday.

Twyshon Depew, 26, died at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center two hours after someone drove him to the hospital with a gunshot wound, authorities said. They believe the shooting took place on the 100 block of Lawrence Street around 9 p.m. Thursday.

The Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office is investigating and had not announced any arrests as of Sunday.

Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, posted tributes to his brother “Twy” on social media Sunday.

“I love you lil bro I really thought I could get you out before I ever had to make a post like this,” the rapper wrote.

He called Depew his “twin” and shared several photos of them together.

Fetty Wap made it big in 2015 with his breakout hit “Trap Queen.” In addition to his commercial success, he has made headlines over the years for throwing thousands in cash to people in Garden State Plaza and filming a racy music video at a Paterson high school.

Anyone with information about Depew’s killing is asked to call the prosecutor’s office at 1-877-370-PCPO or Paterson police at 973-321-1120. Information can be emailed to tips@passaiccountynj.org.

As a music journalist, it’s dope to see an artist’s progression. Jetty has graced our pages once before from his JetWave release awhile back and it was evident in our sit-down that the time in-between has been productive and rewarding for him.

“I have an affinity, an infatuation for words and for what people are rapping about and not knowing what they were talking about which made me have to look up what they were talking about and it’s making me learn more.” –Jetty Santiago

 

Santiago Summers released on August 15th, has 12 tracks and was originally a project that Jetty was balancing between two other projects before the pandemic hit. Jetty talked about the struggle to gain inspiration to create during this time in our interview. You can check out the full interview of our sit-down by clicking the link below.
