It seems as if Lil Wayne could be let off and be safe regarding his federal gun case by none other than President Trump who’s reportedly expected to pardon the rapper before his term ends.
Trump is believed to have a pretty lengthy list of names for his final round of commutations and pardons, an estimate of 50 to 100 people. According to sources he’ll announce them in a big reveal Tuesday or, at the latest, Wednesday morning before Joe Biden’s inauguration.
When he does, it sounds like people anticipate Lil Wayne to be a notable beneficiary of a presidential pardon.
Previously, rapper Weezy posed for a photo op with 45 and touted his track record with criminal justice reform. He also voiced his support for the President and proposed his ‘platinum plan’ for the Black community.
Trump also praised and appreciated Lil Wayne as an activist and a “really nice guy.”
Last year Wayne pled guilty in federal court last month for illegally possessing a loaded weapon while traveling to Miami on a private jet.
The rapper’s a convicted felon so he’s facing the possibility of up to a 10 year sentence in prison.
The final days of Trump’s term will be big for Lil Wayne as he might get off scot-free if the president’s pardon comes through.
