Lil Yachty Asks Donald Trump to Commute Kodak Black’s Prison Sentence

As President Donald Trump’s end of term nears, he’s been making the most of his power to issue pardons and commutations, particularly to those closest to him.

Since the Commander in Chief seems to be in the spirit of giving, Lil Yachty put in his own request on Monday (Jan. 4) for Kodak Black’s prison sentence to be commuted.

“Hey @realDonaldTrump my friend @KodakBlack1k deserves to be commuted. The system punished him way to hard for a paperwork crime #freekodak,” the “Flex Up” rapper tweeted.

In November 2019, Kodak was sentenced to more than three years in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges stemming from his arrest just before a scheduled concert performance in May of that year.

The 23-year-old rapper admitted in August 2019 that on two separate occasions, he falsified information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop. He also faces drug, weapons and sexual assault charges in other states.

A commutation reduces a sentence, either totally or partially, and can also release an unpaid fine imposed at sentencing. It does not, however, erase a conviction or remove the ban on voting or running for office for those convicted of a federal crime.
