PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — 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 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."

A telephone number for Moody could not be located. His lawyer declined to comment on the report.
