Kanye West and Drake join forces for a fundraiser event to help liberate Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover
Kanye West and Drake allegedly ended their feud earlier this month.
Kanye West and Drake are teaming together for a benefit performance to get Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover out of prison, reportedly putting an end to their dispute.
West announced on Instagram Saturday that he and Drake will play together at a benefit event at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on December 9 to lobby for Hoover’s clemency.
West’s post was captioned “God’s Plan,” a reference to Drake’s 2018 song.
West is named as the show’s headliner, while Drake is listed as a special guest. After being at odds, they will most likely take the stage together for the first time.
Hoover, 70, is serving six life terms for ordering the 1973 murder of a 19-year-old cocaine dealer, according to Page Six. The Gangster Disciples co-founder would subsequently manage a narcotics network out of prison, earning an astounding $100 million each year. One of the items Kanye discussed with former President Trump during their meeting in 2018 was the release of Hoover.
Drake’s mentor, James Prince, teased their collaboration to liberate Larry Hoover on Instagram in October.
“Good plans in the making to free our brother Larry Hoover with the support of @champagnepapi and @kanyewest,” he posted at the time.
Hoover’s son, Larry Hoover Jr., teased the duet earlier this week on the “Murder Master Music Show,” according to Page Six.
“We’re going to get the word out to as many people as we can. We gotta let the powers that be know that we want Larry Hoover in our community,” Hoover Jr. stated
Earlier this month, Drake and West appeared on social media with comic Dave Chappelle, signalling to the public for the first time that they’d resolved their long-running feud, ostensibly for a cause important to both of them.
