Lil Wayne is expected to be on the list of presidential pardons issued by Donald Trump, according to a new report. FOX News reports that Trump is expected to issue between 50 and 100 pardons this week before he leaves office, and Weezy is expected to be on the list.

Wayne pled guilty in December on charges of illegally possessing a loaded firearm while traveling to Miami in 2019. His bag also contained small amounts of cocaine, ecstasy and oxycodone. Wayne is facing up to 10 years in prison on the charge, being a convicted felon. He and Trump have mutally expressed admiration for each other, with the rapper endorsing Trump leading up to the 2020 election while Trump has praised Wayne’s activist work and called him a “really nice guy.”

The outlet reports that the pardons will likely come either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
