Lil Wayne Thanks Donald Trump For His Pardon + Fat Joe, 2 Chainz, Busta Rhymes, Lil Skies & More React To The News

Not long after Donald Trump officially pardoned Lil Wayne, the Young Money CEO took to his Twitter page to share a statement about the situation and to thank the 45th president of the USA, as well as his attorney Bradford Cohen.

“I want to thank President Trump for recognizing that I have so much more to give to my family, my art, and my community. I also want to thank [attorney Bradford Cohen] for working so diligently to secure another chance for me. Love!”

Tunechi‘s attorney also participated in an interview with The New York Times recently where he claimed Tune did not meet up with Trump in October, 2020 just to receive a pardon like a lot of people are suggesting.

Lil Wayne Issues A Statement About Why He Never Performed Live At The Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr Fight

The reason Lil Wayne never performed live at Mike Tyson’s comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr. on November 28th was due to an “unrelated 3rd party”.

In a statement co-issued from Triller and Weezy, there was a 3rd party who tried to involve themselves in the production process between the video-making/social-networking service and the Young Money CEO:

“Unfortunately there was an unrelated 3rd party who attempted to insert themselves in the production process between Triller and Lil Wayne the night before the event and the morning of and it unfortunately caused enough of an issue that Wayne couldn’t perform.”

However, Tunechi says he “was truly disappointed he was precluded from performing by the 3rd party” and promises to perform live at “Triller’s next fight card.”
