Lil Wayne and Kodak Black showed their gratitude to former President Trump after he included them in his Presidential Pardon on Jan. 19 before leaving the White House.
“I want to thank President Trump for recognizing that I have so much more to give to my family, my art, and my community. I also want to thank @bradfordcohen for working so diligently to secure another chance for me. Love!” the rapper tweeted to his millions of followers.
Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to illegally possessing a loaded weapon on a private jet while traveling to Miami in December 2020. Carter is a convicted felon, from a gun charge in 2007, which means he was looking at 10 years in prison.
Kodak Black (real name Bill Kahan Kapri) was put in federal prison after pleading guilty to a firearms possession charge after being detained at the Canadian-American border in March 2020.
“I Want To Thank The President @RealDonaldTrump For His Commitment To Justice Reform And Shortening My Sentence. I Also Want To Thank Everyone For Their Support And Love,” he wrote on Thursday, later tagging Dan Scavino, the former White House deputy chief of staff for communications and director of social media under the Trump administration. “It Means More Than You Will Ever Know. I Want To Continue Giving Back, Learning And Growing.”
The White House highlighted Kodak Black’s “numerous philanthropic efforts… such as providing educational resources to students and families of fallen law enforcement officers and the underprivileged. In addition to these efforts, he has paid for the notebooks of school children, provided funding and supplies to daycare centers, provided food for the hungry, and annually provides for underprivileged children during Christmas.”
