President Donald Trump is reportedly looking to get a lot of rappers out that jam, Vanity Fair reports.
Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was given a list of people to pardon by Kim Kardashian, which contains rappers.
“They’re going to be pardoning a lot of people – pardons that even Obama wouldn’t do,” a source told Vanity.
The pardon could possibly repair Trump’s image with liberals. This is perhaps the goals Kanye West was trying to achieve by working closely with Trump.
Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, was able to successfully get Trump to pardon 63-year-old Alice Johnson. Johnson was sentenced to life in prison on a drug charge in 1996.
So grateful to @realDonaldTrump, Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion & contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are also deserving of a second chance.

Bobby Shmurda is one of the more popular names in today’s Hip Hop.
Bobby Shmurda was sentenced to seven years in prison in October 2016 after pleading guilty to charges of 4th-degree conspiracy to criminally possess a weapon and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession.
Bobby will also be required to serve five years probation after his term. He could’ve have faced 25 years to life in prison if he was convicted on charges of conspiracy, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and criminally using drug paraphernalia.
Bobby waived his right to appeal as part of the plea deal.
“I was forced to take this sentence, I did not want to take this sentence,” Bobby told the court, according to Billboard. “I was forced by my attorney to take this plea.”
Bobby told Complex during an interview he took the plea deal to save Rowdy Rebel.
Bobby said he could’ve taken a five-year deal, but declined.
“I did it for Rowdy. They offered me five and offered Rowdy 12,” Bobby told Complex. “They said the only way they’ll give him seven is if I took seven too. So, you know, I had to take one for the dawgs.”
But Billboard reports Bobby was upset in court, saying, “They lied to me.”
Bobby had been in jail since his arrest at Manhattan’s Quad Studios in December 2014.
