PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Rapper Fetty Wap has apologized for a music video that led to the suspension of a high school principal in his New Jersey hometown.
The Paterson-born rapper recorded at Paterson Eastside High a video that contained references to drugs and featured a scantily clad pole dancer. He released the video for "Wake Up" last month.
The school's principal was put on paid administrative leave two weeks ago.
Fetty Wap attended a board of education meeting Wednesday and joined more than 100 residents in protesting the principal's suspension.
NJ.com (http://bit.ly/24WAAlq) reports he said if he disrespected anybody he was there to apologize but he also wanted to let people know he's a product of his environment.
The school district is investigating who authorized the filming of the video at the school.
