Out-going President Donald Trump has pardoned Death Row Records Co-Founder Michael “Harry-O” Harris. Harris was instrumental in financing Death Row Records with a reported investment of 1.5 million dollars.
Harris, who had been jailed since 1988 on convictions of cocaine trafficking and attempted murder, was not scheduled to be released until June of 2028. But thanks heavy lobbying from Snoop Dogg and others, Harris is now a free man.
While speaking to the press in 2019, Harris said, “Over 30 years ago, I was part of the problem. However, over the years, I have repeatedly proven myself to be part of the solution. It’s about returning to society with my newfound vision, talents, and insights [and] giving back to the communities where my help is so desperately needed.”
Welcome home Harry-O!
