    An investigation into how rapper Fetty Wap was allowed to record a music video that included drug references and a pole dancer in his old New Jersey high school has concluded that the school's principal was solely responsible and should be disciplined.

    Zatiti Moody was put on administrative leave in June after Paterson school officials began looking into the "Wake Up" video filmed at Eastside High School.

    District officials had a law firm investigate the matter, and NJ.com obtained a copy of the report through a public records request.

    The investigation found that Moody didn't follow all the requirements of the board's policies and regulations. It recommends that the district's superintendent impose "appropriate discipline.''

    The report also stated that Fetty Wap's production company should have paid for using the facilities. The company gave $500 to the Eastside Booster Club, but not the school itself, according to NJ.com.

    Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, has apologized to Moody and the city of Paterson.

    "If I disrespected anybody, I came today to apologize, but I also wanted to let people know that I'm a product of my environment," Maxwell said.
