The FBI arrested rapper Fetty Wap in New York on Thursday in a federal drug investigation, a U.S. law enforcement source told CBS News. The rapper, whose legal name is William Junior Maxwell II, is expected to appear in court Friday morning.

Maxwell was arrested at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. He was scheduled to perform at the stadium for the Rolling Loud music festival, CBS New York reports.

Thirteen of Maxwell’s songs have made it to Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. His debut single “Trap Queen” rose to number 2 on the chart in May 2015.
