Kodak Black & Lil Wayne Officially Pardoned By Trump
President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris will transfer power and enter into their new positions, but prior to that taking place, Trump is expected to make some pardons before living office.
There have been ongoing conversations regarding who will, and will not, be pardoned by the president at the last minute.
Update regarding Trump’s choices surfaced as it’s been reported that both Lil Wayne and Kodak Black have also been granted a pardon by the president.

“Trump pardoned rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black who were prosecuted on federal weapons offenses, as well as former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who was serving a 28-year prison term on corruption charges, a senior administration official said,” tweeted a Reuters reporter.
Soon, similar reports began to circulate indicating that the rumor could, indeed, be true.
Kodak has been incarcerated on federal weapons charges while Wayne has recently pleaded guilty to federal weapons charges. Some reports state that Trump has granted both artists pardons, while others claim that they’ve been given clemency.
With the former, both rappers would be forgiven of the charges against them, while the latter means that charges may be reduced.
