Lil Wayne’s Lawyer Downplays Donald Trump Support Got Weezy F. Baby Pardoned

The Cash Money legend was one of 143 people the former president either pardoned or commutated late Tuesday night (January 19), his last full day in the Oval Office.

Lil Wayne was one of 143 people Donald Trump either pardoned or commutated late Tuesday night (January 19), his last full day in the Oval Office. But allegations suggesting the Cash Money legend publicly endorsed Trump last November solely in the interest of securing the pardon are being refuted by Wayne’s attorney.

In an interview with the New York Times, South Florida lawyer Bradford Cohen talked about masterminding Trump’s meeting with Wayne and denied it was tactical decision. For a year prior to their White House rendezvous, Wayne had been under investigation for a federal weapons charge, but Cohen insinuated he truly was interested in Trump’s mythical Platinum Plan touted by the now-former president..centered-ad {

“It never hurts that someone gets a full understanding of an individual when they’re just looking at a piece of paper,” he said. “In hindsight, I guess it worked out.”

Rather, Cohen suggested Trump issued the pardon based on the strength of his relationship with the multi-platinum rapper.

“I think they had a very strong connection,” Cohen said of the two. “He’s in the entertainment world. “He’s got a style that’s similar in terms of the way that he carries himself, and a lot of rappers and people in the industry relate to that.”
