On Thursday, rapper Lil Wayne thanked Donald Trump for including him on the list of 100-plus pardons issued as the former president exited the White House this week.

Lil Wayne: ‘I Want To Thank President Trump’

The Grammy Award winner and famous Green Bay Packers fan sent a grateful message to President Trump.

“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!”

The rapper signed his message using his full legal name, Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.

Wayne had praised Trump’s “Platinum Plan for Black Americans” during Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign, an effort to revitalize and create job growth for black communities.

In November 2020, the rapper was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon for flying with a firearm and ammunition.

Trump Also Pardoned Rapper Kodak Black

Lil Wayne’s attorney, Howard Srebnick, told the Associated Press at the time, “Carter is charged with possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage on a private plane.”

“There is no allegation that he ever fired it, brandished it, used it or threatened to use it,” Srebnick added. “There is no allegation that he is a dangerous person.”

In October, Wayne said that he had a “great meeting” with Trump and praised him for being a Republican who had actually made outreach efforts to black Americans.  

Trump also commuted the sentence of Rapper Kodak Black, who remained in federal prison for “making a false statement to buy a firearm.” 

Black thanked Trump on Twitter.

“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. It Means More Than You Will Ever Know. I Want To Continue Giving Back, Learning And Growing,” the rapper tweeted.
