United States of America president, Donald Trump has pardoned rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black on his final day in office.
“President Trump granted a full pardon to Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., also known as ‘Lil Wayne,'” the statement from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany read.
“Mr. Carter pled guilty to possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, owing to a conviction over 10 years ago.”
While Kodak Black, who is in prison for making a false statement to buy a firearm, had his sentence pardoned too.
Lil Wayne made headlines late last year when he tweeted his support for Trump, stating that they had had a “great meeting” about criminal reform.
In addition to Lil Wayne and Kodak Black, Death Row Records co-founder Michael “O-Harry” Harris also had his sentence pardoned by Trump.
