The rapper Kodak Black was granted a pardon by Donald Trump on his last day as U.S. President last week. He had been serving a 46-month sentence for weapons offences which was due to end in August 2022.
“I Want To Thank The President @RealDonaldTrump For His Commitment To Justice Reform And Shortening My Sentence. I Also Want To Thank Everyone For Their Support And Love.” – Kodak took to Twitter to thank Trump, after his sentence was commuted.
The American rapper had previously tweeted he would donate $1 million to charity if Trump issued him a pardon, but the tweet was later deleted.
“Instead of harping on a young black man and how much charity he does, why don’t we take a look at the amount of charity the writers of these articles do, Last week Kodak pledged 100k to setting up a scholarship fund in the name of Meadow Pollack, the week before he donated 50k to barstool fund to help small businesses. That’s 150k and he’s been out 5 days.” – wrote Black’s lawyer Bradford Cohen on his Instagram.
