As the last few hours of Donald Trump’s Presidency begins to come to a close, it looks like a few pardons will come through for some big names in hip-hop, including Lil Wayne, although yet to be confirmed, and even a Death Row Records executive.
According to The New York Post, Trump has commuted the prison sentence of Death Row Records’ co-founder Michael “Harry O” Harris for attempted murder and cocaine trafficking. The grant of clemency for the 69-year-old is in part thanks to Snoop Dogg who had been secretly lobbying the White House on Harris’ behalf. Although Snoop has been a consistent voice against the current President, it was also the assistance from First Daughter Ivanka Trump who also had a hand in pushing up the June 2028 release date.
Donald Trump is expected to officially announce a batch of 50-100 last minute pardons Wednesday morning, ahead of the Joe Biden inauguration.
