Lil Wayne & Kodak Black Granted Pardon by Donald Trump


As expected, outgoing president Donald Trump has pardoned both Lil Wayne and Kodak Black. According to Reuters reporter David Shepardson, the embattled former President signed the official paperwork on January 19 at 11:30 p.m. local time as his last full day in office came to an end.

Wayne, who pleaded guilty to a federal weapons charge in December 2020, was initially facing up to 10 years in prison. On December 23 2019, federal authorities received an anonymous tip the Cash Money legend was transporting drugs on his private jet. Kodak Black will now be freed from prison after serving over a year in jail for falsifying information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami gun shop on two separate occasions.

On January 20, not long after President Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, Kodak fired off a tweet to Trump’s now-suspended Twitter account and thanked him for the second chance.

Other pardons include Trump’s former aide Steve Bannon, Roc Nation’s Desiree Perez and ex-Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
