Rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black are reportedly on Presidential Donald Trump’s potential list of people to get a pardon before he leaves office, according to Bloomberg.
The president is reportedly considering a pardon for Black and Wayne, who famously posed for a photo with the president ahead of the 2020 campaign, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg in a piece published Thursday.
Black is currently serving time behind bars after he got in trouble for making multiple false written statements on an application while trying to acquire firearms, according to CNN. (RELATED: Star Rapper Shocks The World After She Reveals She’s Dating A Registered Sex Offender)
