Kanye West, Drake team up for benefit concert to free Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover

After seemingly squashing their beef, Kanye West and Drake are teaming 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 be doing a joint performance at a benefit concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Dec. 9 to advocate for clemency for Hoover. West’s post was captioned “God’s Plan,” which is a nod to Drake’s 2018 track. West is listed as the headliner of the show while Drake is a special guest at the event. They will presumably take the stage together for the first time after spending a great deal of time at odds with one another. KANYE WEST DEDICATES SUNDAY SERVICE TO ASTROWORLD VICTIMS: ‘LET’S GET BACK TO A PEACEFUL STATE OF MIND’

The Gangster Disciples co-founder would later run a drug ring from prison that earned a shocking $100 million per year. Freeing Hoover was one of the topics that Kanye discussed during his meeting with then-President Donald 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.
