Some two weeks left to his four-year term, President Donald Trump attempts to make the most of his power by issuing pardons and commutations. According to Bloomberg, Trump is putting together a list of those he may absolve during his last day in office – one that includes two rappers – Lil Wayne and Kodak Black.
In November 2019, Kodak was sentenced to three plus years in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges stemming from his arrest just before a scheduled concert performance in May of that year. The rapper admitted to falsifying information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop. In December 2021, Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Carter spent eight months in prison more than a decade ago, after a weapons conviction in New York.
This news comes shortly after some of the President’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building.
