Promoter Faces More Charges After Shooting Involving Fetty Wap

In the case regarding the robbing of Fetty Wap’s chain, there have been two more arrests made in his New Jersey hometown.

Raheem Thomas, a hip-hop promoter who initially was arrested on aggravated assault and weapons charges after the shooting occurred in Paterson early Sunday, will now also face an armed robbery charge, the Passaic County prosecutor’s office said Wednesday.

Thomas, 36, had a handgun and hollow point bullets when he was arrested on the armed robbery charge, authorities said, so he’s also facing weapons charges and a count of receiving stolen property.

He was due to appear in court Wednesday on the new counts.  Another Paterson man, Sylvester Huffin, 34, has been charged with two counts of attempted murder and three weapons charges, prosecutors announced later Wednesday. He faces decades in prison if convicted on all counts.

The shooting incident took place Sunday outside a Paterson deli. Police stated that Fetty Wap, and friends had become involved in a heated altercation with another group inside the deli. Three people were wounded, but Fetty Wap wasn’t injured.

A photo posted this weekend to Thomas’ Instagram account showed a masked man wearing what appears to be Fetty Wap’s signature “1738” pendant.

“Just to set the record straight, I personally didn’t take [Fetty Wap’s] chain,” Thomas posted.

Thomas in January also posted a rap song and video on YouTube that was disrespectful of Fetty Wap.
