Kanye West and Drake team up for benefit concert to free Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover
After seemingly ending their feud, Kanye West and Drake team up for a benefit concert to get Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover out of jail.
West announced on Instagram on Saturday that he and Drake would perform together at a benefit concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on December 9 to advocate for clemency for Hoover.
West’s post was captioned “God’s Plan,” which is a nod to Drake’s track from 2018.
West is listed as the show’s headliner while Drake is a special guest at the event. They will probably take the stage together for the first time after disagreeing.

According to Page Six, Hoover, 70, is serving six life sentences for ordering the 1973 murder of a 19-year-old drug dealer. The Gangster Disciples co-founder would later run a drug ring from prison that made $ 100 million a year. Freeing Hoover was one of the topics Kanye touched on when he met former President Trump in 2018.
In October, Drake’s mentor James Prince took to Instagram to tease their collaboration to free Larry Hoover.
“Good plans in the making to free our brother Larry Hoover with the support of @champagnepapi and @kanyewest,” he wrote at the time.
The collaboration was further teased earlier this week by Hoover’s son Larry Hoover Jr., who spoke on the “Murder Master Music Show,” Page Six reports.

âWe’re going to get the word out to as many people as possible. We need to let the powers that be that we want Larry Hoover in our community,â said Hoover Jr.

Earlier this month, Drake and West appeared on social media together alongside comedian Dave Chappelle, for the first time signaling to the public that they had mashed their longtime beef, apparently for a cause that’s important to those two.
