After being one of the 73 individuals pardon by former President Donald Trump, Lil Wayne’s official pardon letter has leaked online thanks to TMZ.
Bank in October of 2020, Wayne shared a photo of himself and President Donald Trump to which immediately was hit with criticism. “Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump@potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
As seen below in the photo Wayne smiling giving a thumbs up, probably knew Trump would have his back when needed. And that is exactly what happened. Lil Wayne was facing a 10 year sentence for possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, but was pardon by Trump before leaving the White House.
Wayne went on Twitter and thanked the former president with the following tweet, “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.”
Now weeks later and TMZ was able to get their hands on the official pardon letter sent out to Lil Wayne.
