As promised earlier, when POTUS revealed his list of people set to be pardoned by his administration, on Tuesday (January 19) Trump reportedly pardoned the “Funeral” creator as well as Kodak Black who is spending his time behind the bars on federal gun charges since May 2019.
The news about the clemency was confirmed by both Wayne and Black’s attorney Bradford Cohen, who talked with XXL and expressed his gratitude to Trump’s administration.
“These pardons is [sic] a perfect example of this administration following up on its reforms and commitments. Thank you to President Trump for his advocacy and dedication to justice reform,” Cohen said.
In November 2020, Lil Wayne was charged by the Feds for Firearm possession and later the Young Money rapper pleaded guilty. This could put him behind the bars for nearly 10 years. But, seems like his support for Donald Trump during the 2020 election campaigns had its positive side.
Kodak, on another side, was already behind the bars since 2019 and he would’ve been there until 2022 but the now-absolved charges will result in an early homecoming for the rapper.
