PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey school district is investigating how rapper Fetty Wap was allowed to record a music video that included drug references and a pole dancer in his old high school.
The Paterson native released the video for “Wake Up” last week.
Paterson school district spokeswoman Terry Corallo tells NJ.com the district is investigating whether procedures were followed in allowing parts of the video to be recorded at East Side High School. Fetty Wap dropped out of the school.
Corallo says the district doesn’t endorse the content of the video. She says it was shot during non-instructional hours and didn’t include students.
A spokeswoman for Fetty Wap didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment.
Fetty Wap performed a free show for city high school students in August.
