Depew, 26, was shot in the chest around 9 p.m. on Thursday night and driven by another man to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey, according to the South Passaic Daily Voice. 

Back in 2016, Fetty (real name: Willie Maxwell II) spoke about caring for his family in a chat with Trevor Noah for Interview magazine.

‘After the years of me trying to figure out what I wanted to do with myself, I knew I had to go back and fix some things. I can’t just be super-rich or whatever and not do the right thing,’ he said.

The Trap Queen rapper said that included watching out for ‘My mom, my father, my little sisters, and my brother…’ 

‘I don’t got that much family,’ he added.  

Shooting: Page Six identified his brother in the post as Twyshon Depew, who was featured elsewhere on Fetty's Instagram. He was shot in the chest and died Thursday night in Paterson, NJ, according to the South Passaic Daily Voice

‘I’m not really a family person. I just do my own thing. But I’ve just been spending time with my mom, especially since the [September motorcycle] accident happened,’ he continued.

‘I drive all the way down there to Georgia just to check up on her. You just get tired of being that person that you thought you were. I don’t feel no different. I see the music, because I made it. I don’t really see the fame.’

Family seemed to be his primary concern, and he said that fame ‘doesn’t mean anything to me.’

‘My plan was to make sure that my son would be good, and I have a daughter now, so now she’s included into the equation, and the work I do as Fetty Wap made me care,’ he said. ‘I don’t care about being Fetty Wap.’

The singer has a growing family of his own, including six children from different mothers.

In September of last year, he married the model Leandra K. Gonzalez in a private ceremony.
