Rapper Kodak Black has expressed his appreciation to the immediate past President of the United States, Donald Trump for his Presidential pardon on Wednesday.
Kodak Black took to his social media page after seeing his name among those on the Presidential pardon list, to say:
“I Want To Thank The President @RealDonaldTrump For His Commitment To Justice Reform And Shortening My Sentence,’’ tweeted the “Roll in Peace’’ rapper, who was sentenced to 46 months in 2019 and reportedly pledged in November to donate $1 million to charity if he landed a pardon.
“I Also Want To Thank Everyone For Their Support And Love,’’ wrote Black, 23, whose real name is Bill Kahan Kapri.
“It Means More Than You Will Ever Know. I Want To Continue Giving Back, Learning And Growing.”
Black, who is from Florida, admitted in 2019 to lying on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop.
His legal team began lobbying Trump in the fall for a Presidential pardon, saying most people convicted of his crime only land 18 months bars.
In November, a tweet on the rapper’s Twitter account said, “If the President [frees] me, I’m gonna spend $1 million on charity within the first year I’m out,” according to the hip-hop Web site XXL.
The tweet was later deleted.
