The last day of Donald Trump as president is January 19th and there is a a slew of pardons expected which include hip hop artist Lil Wayne.

There’s no love lost between Snoop Dogg and Donald Trump as the iconic rapper has criticized Trump during his presidency. He is letting that tension go as
he wants Trump to pardon Death Row Records co-founder, Michael “Harry-O” Harris before he leaves office according to Daily Mail.

Criminal justice reform advocate Alice Johnson, who is working with Snoop Dogg and had her own life sentence commuted by President Trump, says, “The president knows about it. I’ve spoken with Ivanka [Trump] and I’ve spoken with Jared [Kushner], and I’ve been told that President Trump is aware of the case and has been reviewing it. I’ve spoken to [White House chief of staff] Mark Meadows about it, and he said he’d take a look at it. The president knows how much this case means to me… In reviewing Michael Harris’ case, his story, and what he’s gone through, this is such an unfair case…He should have been home a decade ago. I really felt for this man. I am very hopeful that he will be home before the end of the Trump administration.”

Harry-O is projected to be released in 2028 as he is doing federal and state time for his connection to an 11-state drug trafficking ring with ties to a Colombian cartel.

In December 2020, music producer Weldon Angelos, was pardoned by Trump stated Snoop made Harry-O’s release was a possibility when Snoop contacted him after Christmas in an attempt to get Harris’ sentence commuted.
