Lil Wayne have taken to Twitter to thank Donald Trump for granting him presidential pardon before leaving office.
Donald Trump granted rapper Lil Wayne a full presidential pardon in his final hours as the president of the United States.
In November, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida revealed that Wayne faced a federal weapons charge relating to a December 2019 incident at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport.
He pleaded guilty in December and was facing up to 10 years in prison.
However, earlier this week, a statement about Wayne’s pardon was released by the White House and noted the rapper’s commitment to charity as a reason for the pardon.
Taking to Twitter today, Lil Wayne thanked Trump writing:
“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! – Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.”
