Fetty plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess and distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine in a Long Island court on Monday, a rep for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York confirmed.

While the rapper — whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell — could get slapped with four decades behind bars, RadarOnline.com can report that the charge holds a minimum sentence of five years — so no matter what, he's going away.

His co-defendants, Robert Leonardi and Anthony Cyntje plead guilty to the same count and additional firearms charges.

Despite the guilty plea, Fetty's attorney stated he is "NOT cooperating" [with authorities]. Outside the courtroom, the lawyer said, "I want that to be very, very clear. This is a standard plea," according to a New York Post reporter.
