We beg your pardon.
Lil Wayne and Kodak Black are among over a hundred of individuals that were granted clemency during final hours of Donald Trump’s presidency, announced The White House in their official statement.
On Sunday (Jan. 17), officials met at The White House to finalize the growing list of pardon and commutation requests, excluding cases from the former president and his family members.
Lil Wayne was scheduled for sentencing on January 28 for one count of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. The arrest came after police discovered a handgun and bullets onboard his private jet back in 2019. He was facing up to 10 years in prison, but was recommended a reduced time after pleading guilty last December.
Since last year, Kodak Black was serving a 46 month sentence in a Kentucky prison for falsifying federal forms to purchase a firearm and was originally scheduled to be released in August 2022. He is also facing sexual charges in South Carolina from 2016 and drug and weapon charges from his U.S. Patrol arrest in 2019.
In addition to Tunechi and Kodak, Deathrow Records’ co-founder Michael Harry-O Harris was also granted pardon. Harris had been incarcerated for over 30 years on attempted murder and drug trafficking charges. Last year, Snoop Dogg was among the individuals who lobbied for Harry-O’s release. Harris, 60, was initially scheduled to be released in 2028.
Current Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez was also provided clemency on her past criminal record, which has now been cleared. Perez was arrested in 1994 for federal drug possession and in 1998 for grand larceny and possession of a firearm.
