According to reports, Donald Trump is preparing a list of potential pardons that include some notable names in the hip-hop sphere. Per Bloomberg, Trump is considering pardoning Lil Wayne and Kodak Black. If granted, the two rappers would receive pardons as part of Trump's final full-day in office - Jan 19.
In addition to Kodak and Weezy, Trump is also mulling over pardons for senior White House officials, family members, and possibly himself. Those names include Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, senior adviser Stephen Miller, personnel chief John McEntee, and social media director Dan Scavino. Trump is also considering pardons for his daughter, Ivanka Trump, her husband, Jared Kushner, and his personal lawyer Rudy Guiliani.
While Trump pardoning notable rappers would be a great cap to an absurd four years in office, the potential self-pardon could have long-lasting legal ramifications that are unforeseen at the moment.
