Kodak Black made a monetary offer in order to obtain a presidential pardon from President Donald Trump. The rapper took to Twitter on Friday (Nov. 27) saying that he will donate a $1 million to charity if the president helps him get out of jail before he leaves the White House next year.  

“If The President Them Free Me, I’m Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity within The First Year I’m Out. That’s on Everything,” the Florida native wrote in a now-deleted tweet. Kodak is currently in federal custody serving a 46-month sentence on gun charges. His expected release date is for August 2022.

His legal team filed a petition in hopes of getting his sentence commuted by Trump in September. A pardon is a government decision to Article II, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution grants the president the power to allow a person convicted or accused of a federal crime to be relieved of some or all of the legal consequences.

Earlier this month, “No Flockin’” emcee also endorsed Trump for reelection. He took to Twitter at the time to announce that he supported the president’s “Platinum Plan” for Black America and said he plans to help him with prison reform once he is released from jail. “What do you think of the ‘Platinum Plan?’ [Bradford Cohen] sent it to me and I read it,” he tweeted. “This is what the community needs…. more ownership. That plan is right! I want to help with justice reform when I am out as well. @realDonaldTrump #justicereform #prisonreform.”

After President Trump pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn on Thanksgiving eve, speculation is brewing about who he will pardon next before leaving the White House. While some believe he will pardon people like Steve Bannon and Paul Manafort, there are some who believe Trump might attempt to self-pardon.

While it has never been done before and could potentially be unconstitutional, the question of whether or not a president can pardon himself has never been presented in court. Trump even tweeted in 2018 that it’s his “absolute right” to do so, writing: “As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?”
