On Donald Trump’s final full day as president of the United States, he is planning to issue pardons to a list of individuals, including Lil Wayne and Kodak Black.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Trump is planning to pardon both emcees on Jan. 19. Both Kodak and Wayne have shown their support to the president in recent months. Back in October, Weezy, who is currently facing 10 years in prison for possessing a firearm and ammunition as a convicted felon, endorsed Trump for reelection. He shared a photo that he took with the president to Twitter and praised the work that Trump has done with criminal reform and what he planned to do in the Black community with his Platinum Plan.

“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump,” the “A Milli” rapper tweeted. “Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the Platinum Plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”

Kodak, who is currently serving a 46-month prison sentence for falsifying paperwork to acquire a firearm, previously made a monetary offer in order to obtain a pardon from the president. The Florida native said that he would donate $1 million to charity if Trump helped him get out of jail early. “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,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet.

Kodak also endorsed Trump for reelection. “What do you think of the ‘Platinum Plan?’ [Bradford Cohen] sent it to me and I read it,” the “No Flockin’” emcee tweeted back in October. “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.”
