The Paterson native released the video for “Wake Up” last week.

Paterson school district spokeswoman Terry Corallo tells ( ) 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 does not endorse the content of the video, which she says was shot during non-instructional hours and did not include students.

A spokeswoman for Fetty Wap didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment.
