Hip Hop legend, Snoop Dogg has reportedly been lobbying President Donald Trump through two activists to pardon Michael “Harry-O” Harris, the co-founder of Death Row Record.
Harris, now 58, was convicted of attempted murder and kidnapping in 1988, and is currently being held at a Federal Correctional Facility in Lompoc, California.
He has since been campaigning for prison reform while in prison with his sentence expected to go through till 2028.
The music executive and his legal team had pushed for an early compassionate release, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the request was denied.
In a last-ditch effort to secure his release before Trump leaves office, Snoop and other advocates insist he’s reformed himself in prison and are hoping the outgoing administration will step in and grant him his release.
The push is being taken to Trump directly by Alice Johnson, who became a criminal justice reform advocate after Trump pardoned her life sentence two-and-a-half years ago.
