Donald Trump Could Pardon Lil Wayne Before He Leaves The White House
Trump has already issued a whole load of pardons in the last month, and he met up with his advisers to discuss who he will offer others to.
That list, according to Fox News, is thought to be made up of political allies and criminal justice reformers, but could also feature 'high profile rappers' like Lil Wayne and Kodak Black, who is currently doing time for gun crimes.
Lil Wayne - real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. - was arrested at Miami airport after a gold-plated handgun was found in his luggage.
Weezy came out as an unlikely supporter of Trump last year before the November elections. He tweeted a picture of himself with the president and said that he supported Trump's work on criminal reform.
One of the other people who could be issued a presidential pardon on Tuesday - and perhaps the most bizarre of all - is Donald Trump himself.
Whilst it is thought that he's not likely to pardon himself and his family before leaving office, he's reportedly looked into it in the past.

However, if he is impeached, he won't be able to pardon himself.
According to reports, Trump's former adviser Steve Bannon is also on the list of people who could potentially receive a pardon.
Bannon's status has been described as 'TBD' as it's unclear whether he'll receive one.
He was arrested on fraud charges last summer and pleaded not guilty at a federal court in Manhattan.
Bannon was indicted along with three others for defrauding donors who gave their cash to the online fundraising campaign called 'We Build the Wall' that raised $25,000,000.
He's been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, as well as one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison for each count, unless he makes it onto Trump's list.
Trump is currently facing impeachment proceedings from the House of Representatives - lead by the Democratic Party - on charges of incitement to insurrection after the Capitol Building on January 6 by his supporters.
