Ye and Drake are putting their beef aside for a good cause.
On December 9, the rappers will hold a benefit concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to call for the release of imprisoned Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover.
On Saturday, Ye shared a poster for the event on Instagram with the caption “God’s Plan,” a nod to the title of Drake’s 2018 hit.
The “Jail” singer, 44, is billed as the evening’s headliner, while his Canadian counterpart, 35, is listed as the evening’s special guest.
Drake’s mentor, James Prince, teased on Instagram in October that Ye and the “Way 2 Sexy” performer were working “to free our brother, Larry Hoover,” though the music executive, 56, did not reveal what they had in the works at the time.
Then, earlier this week, Larry Hoover Jr., Hoover’s son, confirmed on the “Murder Master Music Show” that Ye and Drake were planning a concert to aid in his father’s release.
“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. Donda,” said Hoover Jr., who made a spoken word appearance on Ye’s latest album.
Hoover, now 70, is serving six life sentences for ordering the murder of a 19-year-old drug dealer in 1973 and later running a drug ring from prison that earned an estimated $100 million per year.
During a meeting with then-President Donald Trump at the White House in 2018, Kanye West stated that freeing Hoover was “very important” to him.
“In an alternate universe, I am him. And I have to go and get him free because he was doing positive inside of Chicago,” the Grammy winner said during a rambling speech.
West and Drake have had a tumultuous relationship for years, but they appeared to have reached an agreement on Tuesday when they reunited at a Dave Chappelle comedy show and hung out at the former “Degrassi” star’s Toronto mansion.
