Kanye West, 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 prison.

West announced on Instagram Saturday that he and Drake will jointly perform at a benefit concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on December 9 to advocate clemency for Hoover.

West’s post was captioned, “God’s Plan,” which is a nod to Drake’s track from 2018.

West is headlining the show, while Drake is a special guest at the event. Presumably they will go on 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 co-founder of The Gangster Disciples would later run a drug trafficking ring from prison that made a staggering $ 100 million a year. Freeing Hoover was one of the topics Kanye discussed during his meeting with former President Trump in 2018.

In October, Drake’s mentor James Prince took to Instagram to show his collaboration to free Larry Hoover.

“Good plans are in the works to free our brother Larry Hoover with the support of @champagnepapi and @kanyewest,” he wrote at the time.
