Last week, both Lil Wayne and Kodak Black were pardoned by Donald Trump on his last day as president. This didn’t come off as a surprise to a lot of people though due to the fact that these rappers publicly endorsed Trump for president last fall. Wayne and Kodak have since taken to their social media feeds to thank Trump for the pardon.
One rapper who doesn’t blame them for what they did is Boosie Badazz, who has been incarcerated before.
Boosie Says He Would Do The Same Thing That Wayne Did To Get Pardoned
Boosie was recently interviewed by VladTV and the topic of Wayne being pardoned by Trump came up. Boosie wasn’t surprised that Wayne supported Trump in allegedly to get pardoned and added that he would do the same thing to regain his freedom.
“We thought he was getting jumped like checkers and he was playing chess the whole time,” Boosie explained. “Wayne. That lil’ motherf*cka smart. “For not going to jail? Hell yeah…” said Boosie when asked if he would do the same thing that Wayne did You’d have to be a stupid motherf*cka. Two to eight years of living like this to take a picture with him.”
Wayne Endorsed Trump Right Before The 2020 Presidential Election
Wayne stunned the world in late October when he took to his Twitter feed to reveal that he was endorsing Trump for president. He also explained that he liked Trump‘s “Platinum Plan” for Black Americans.
“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.”
Wayne Was Facing 10 Years In Prison
Before the pardon, Wayne was in a very bad situation with his legal case. In December, he plead guilty to illegally possessing a loaded weapon. This was regarding a December 2019 incident where a gold-plated Remington 1911, .45-caliber handgun loaded with six rounds of ammunition was found on a private jet that he was on.
This was located at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport on the 23rd of that month. Wayne was scheduled to be sentenced on March 3. This wasn’t the first gun case for him as back in 2009, he was convicted of a felony for gun possession from a 2007 incident.
Wayne Gave Fans Plenty Of Music In 2020
