American rapper, Kodak Black has shown his appreciation to Donald Trump for giving him a presidential pardon.

The Trump administration released the statement, which outlines pardons to 73 people and commutations of sentences to another 70, early on Wednesday morning, just hours before the reality television star’s term as president ends.

Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, received a commutation after being charged in 2019 with falsifying information on federal forms to buy firearms.

He admitted to lying on the forms and pleaded guilty in 2019. The rapper was slated to serve a 46-month prison sentence that was expected to end November 2022. Last month, he made a plea to reduce his sentence, though prosecutors denied his request.

Kodak Black tweeted: “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,’’ 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.”

The rappers’ clemency was part of a last-minute spree that included pardons for Steve Bannon, who was charged with defrauding Trump donors in an online fundraising campaign, Elliott Broidy, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy in connection with lobbying the Trump administration, and former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who was convicted of racketeering and extortion, among other crimes.
