During last year's presidential campaign, Lil Wayne tweeted a photo of himself with Trump, saying he had a “great meeting” with the president and supported his criminal justice reform program and economic plan for African Americans. Prince Williams / Preimage via Getty Images President Donald Trump on Wednesday pardoned rapper Lil Wayne, who was facing up to 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a gun charge last month.
The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition after officers found a loaded handgun in his possession while he was traveling to South Florida from California on Dec. 23, 2019, according to the Department of Justice. The renowned hip hop artist met with the president days before the Nov. 3 presidential election to discuss an economic proposal aimed at empowering Black business owners.
In a tweet that included a picture with Trump, Carter praised the president for his work on criminal justice reform and said the proposal, which was called the “platinum plan,” would “give the community real ownership.” In the White House announcement of Carter's pardon, officials noted it had been supported by Brett Perish, owner of liquor company Sovereign Brands, and football legend Dan Sanders.
“Mr. Carter has exhibited this generosity through commitment to a variety of charities, including donations to research hospitals and a host of food banks,” the White House said. Following his latest conviction, his former attorney Ron Sweeney, who recently filed a lawsuit against Carter seeking $20 million in allegedly unpaid commissions, said he hoped Trump would pardon him, according to the Hill.
Trump granted a full pardon to Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. The rapper was charged in Florida on Nov. 17 with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, a federal offense that carries a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison.
In October, the Grammy award-winner caused a stir on social media after appearing to endorse Trump by sharing a photo of the pair following a “great meeting.” Earlier this month, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson advocated for the commutation of Capri on Twitter.
The White House highlighted Capri's “numerous philanthropic efforts... such as providing educational resources to students and families of fallen law enforcement officers and the underprivileged. His legal team, led by wealthy philanthropist and private investigator Eric Love, had a limousine ready to go and hyped up the possibility of his release so much in the media that it became a trending topic on Twitter.
The rapper was the subject of a backlash last month after he told the Fox Sports 1 show Undisputed that there is “no such thing as racism” because his concert audiences are attended by a lot of white fans. When asked to expand on his thoughts, Lil Wayne told the Associated Press that one of the reasons he feels this way is that a white police officer saved his life when he was 12, after he accidentally shot himself in the chest.
The Grammy-winning rapper said he was lying on the floor when police broke down the door, stepping over his body looking for guns and drugs. Wayne says the man he called “Uncle Bob” personally took him to the hospital and stayed with him.

On Tuesday evening (Nov. 3), which was also Election Day, FIF retweeted a headline from a TMZ article about the couple's partnership coming to an end as a result of Wayne meeting with Trump last week. The news of Lil Wayne and Bigot's supposed separation came just days after the New Orleans native shared a photo from his meeting with Donald Trump via Twitter.
“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump POTUS 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,” Wayne wrote in the caption of the image of himself standing beside Trump.
According to CNN, as of reporting time, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has 253 electoral votes to Trump's 213. Rapper Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., surprised his 34.8 million followers on Twitter when he endorsed Donald Trump for re-election and touted his Platinum Plan.
On October 29, Wayne shared a photo of himself and the president and tweeted, “Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump POTUS besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. According to the White House press pool report, Trump’s campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh confirmed the photo of Wayne and the president was taken on Thursday morning in Miami, Florida.
The 38-year-old “Lollipop” rapper endorsed the Platinum Plan, which is a Trump campaign project aimed at winning support among Black voters. According to the president, the plan includes prosecuting the Ku Klux Klan and Antifa, investing in Black communities and making Juneteenth a federal holiday.
I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f****** mind.” He shared the exact same message on his Instagram account, where the “P.I.M.P” rapper has 26.2 million followers.

Thank you for leading.” Pierson followed that up with a GIF showing Ice Cube smiling with the caption, “Today was a good day,” a reference to one of the rapper’s most well-known songs. In a video he shared on October 11, Ice Cube told his Twitter followers that he met with Democratic and Republican officials with regard to support for Black communities.
Obviously, Little Wayne feels a little out of place, and he chooses to show this on his face, which is very public. When he talks about being an alien, a lot of people think that he is just trying to seem weirder to get more fans, but I think that he always felt a little left out of the rap world because he was rapping for so long before he got any real attention. I also think he might feel like an alien because his drug use makes him so unable to relate to other people. 3.“Rabbit” on his arm, “BM JR” that on his chest, “C” between his eyes: Here, we see Little Wayne’s 3 big heroes: his step-father Reginald “Rabbit”, his mentor Bird man, and his mother City.
When Rabbit died, Wayne says he had to become a man and take care of his mother.“BM JR” stands for Bird man Junior. This shows Little Wayne’s feelings toward Bird man, a New Orleans rapper who took Wayne under his arm when he was 11 years old. Though it has been suspected that they are in a sexual relationship based on pictures of them kissing on the lips, they say they are like father and son. The “C” between Wayne’s eyes reportedly stands for City, the name of his mother. In the song “Misunderstood,” Wayne raps, “you can see the City, see the City in my features.” With a big C in between his eyes, it would be hard not to! 4 tear tattoos on his face: Possibly wayne’s most controversial tattoo, he says that they represent four people in his family who have died. They’re controversial because a teardrop on the face usually represents someone you’ve killed. But Wayne has avoided this fact. So this one may remain somewhat a mystery. He recently covered three of them with a “tribal symbol” though. His explanation was that his mother City had told him she was sick of seeing so many tears on his face and wasn’t one enough? So to honor her opinion, he covered the others. This doesn’t actually clear up if Wayne killed anybody or not though, because his mom could have been upset to see any representation of suffering on her son’s face.
Cash Money Tattoo on his stomach: This is Little Wayne's first tattoo, and shows how important his Cash Money Records affiliation is, mostly because of how important his relationship with Bird man is. He started out with Cash Money when he was 11, and the tattoo is a way to show that he will never leave.
It is also reminiscent in its placement to Tupac's “Thug Life” tattoo. We finally know why Christina Milan and Lil Wayne’s year-long love affair came to an end.
The breakup plays out on an episode of Milan’s reality show that aired earlier this week, and it looks like Tune chi wasn’t faithful. In the episode, Milan reveals that she did a little investigating and found out that a woman with a “fake butt” and “stripper tattoo” posted a photo from Weezy’s house.
I think that's the biggest part, my family, we try to remain being good people and are ready for the punches.” A month after their split, Milan and Wayne shot a music video together, and she’s still signed to Young Money.

Regardless of how it went down, Bigot has since deleted her Instagram account after firmly denying she was the one who broke things off. 50, upon seeing a TMZ story about the breakup, tweeted his thoughts on the matter.
Maybe not an exact answer but with the Ryder and Budget rental trucks when the wrap was pulled off prior to being sold the white paint surfaces under the wrap were always like a new paint job. I don't see why you could not paint the wrap especially if it's only for a few years but that's just a pure guess on my part. I haven't been able to find the correct color...it is a yellow/green John, that was my idea.
If you find a good vinyl guy they can and will print any color for you, I know on 3M material they can .... Tim, If you can find a person to do the wrap that is knowledgeable and performs a good service, that would be the route to go.
What happens is, with heating and cooling, the vinyl will expand and contract, and will keep the paint from adhering to it. Tim, I do vinyl graphics on the side and if you have the 'PMS' number (industry color system) your sign guy can order vinyl in that color, recommend 3M for durability and memorability.
A roll of material is not too bad to purchase, if you can install it yourself, and your guy will sell it to you. A lot cheaper than paint and repaint, not to mention added depreciation.
If you want an idea of what they can do with wrap, have a look at my post in the NRC section. They can wrap curves, or any other shape, in any color, any direction, then when you are done just peel it off.
