Sources close to the situation tell The Blast, the argument is simple — both famous musicians have been convicted and one sent to prison over crimes related to firearms. As you know, gun laws and the ability to purchase firearms has come under much debate in the past few years.
The other reason — based on the list of other possible recipients, including one whose crimes were much worse than either celebrity and has already received one.

According to reports, Kodak and Weezy are on Trump’s list of people he plans to pardon in the final days of his presidency — which includes family members, aides, and even possibly himself.
But, our sources say people close to both rappers are pointing towards another name on the list, to make the point that commuting the sentences of both rappers is the right thing to do.
Stephanie Mohr, a former officer with the Prince George’s County Police Department received clemency from Trump in December after spending several years in prison on a police brutality conviction. Based on what has happened, and what is going on in this country — the comparison of this and the rapper’s convictions is worth reading.

Mohr’s conviction stems from an incident in 1995 while she was working as an officer and a new canine handler. After she responded to a burglary, the officers found two men on the roof of a building. According to reports, the two climbed down with their hands raised in the air — but after a conversation with her training officer, without warning, released the dogs who bit one of the men. At the time, the officer allegedly asked “Hey Sarge, we got a new dog. Mind if it gets a bite?”
“The police consciously, deliberately put a police dog on men who were surrendering with their hands up,” prosecutors said at the time, adding, “After that, the officers on the scene adhered to a code of silence that kept them from saying what happened that night.”
Mohr was convicted and served 10 years in prison.
But, It Gets Worse…See Below
During a second trial in the case, prosecutors painted Mohr as an officer who had a history of targeting minorities. A witness in the case, who is Black, testified that she threatened him with her dog saying it would come after your ‘Black Ass.”
It should be noted, Mohr has maintained her innocence and told USA Today, “That couldn’t be further from the truth. I am disgusted and appalled by those … I have never used racially demeaning language in my lifetime.”
But, the connection is clear, Kodak Black is serving a three-year prison sentence for falsifying documents used by a gun in Miami. Lil’ Wayne has just pled guilty to carrying a firearm on his private jet after landing in Florida.
You get the point. And sources close to the musicians say, it’s just the right thing to do. Period.
