Lil Wayne thanks Donald Trump for granting him presidential pardon

Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, aka Lil Wayne, an American rapper, has taken to micro-blogging platform Twitter to appreciate former President Donald Trump for granting him a full presidential pardon in his final hours in office.

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.
