According to The Daily Voice, Depew was hit with bullets while on “Lawrence Street across from Wrigley Park near Rosa Parks Boulevard around 9 p.m.” He was transported to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center by a private vehicle. However, he succumbed to his injuries just after 11 p.m., said Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora.
As seen from a few later posts to his Instagram account, Fetty Wap is having a tough time dealing with Depew’s untimely death, with one of his main concerns being his nephew’s reaction in the future. “I done lost so many n__gas that sh_t was almost starting to feel normal,…but my Lil brother man…I feel like 2017 all over again this same feeling,” came the sad revelation from the 29-year-old rapper. “I know your slogan ‘dont cry for me slide for me.’ I just dont know what Ima tell my nephew when he ask me why I ain’t make sure you was ok..”
While the comment section below Fetty’s initial post has been disabled, fans have been sending him their condolences through other platforms covering the story. Urban Islandz would also like to extend condolences to Fetty Wap and other members of the victim’s family.
