Larry Hoover has been in prison since 1973. Rappers Kanye West and Drake ended their long fight to stage a benefit concert for Larry in Los Angeles on December 9. Ye shared a photo announcing the concert on Saturday, November 20.
Kanye West and Drake’s subsequent reuniting had us approaching this one-of-a-kind event. The motivation between the two rappers is restoring day by day. Their upcoming joint concert is set to take place on Thursday, December 9.
Yesterday, the promotion of the show appeared in Drake’s hometown Toronto, displaying the image used when the concert was originally announced. It will be taking place in Los Angeles Forum. These promotional signs are motivating people to continue buying tickets.
The show has yet to sell out, as fans were astounded by the high ticket prices when they went on sale last week. The show is officially listed as a Ye concert, with Drake as a special guest, but organizer J. Prince also teased that there could be additional acts in support of Larry Hoover.
The concert is an effort to bring awareness to Hoover’s cause to be released from his nearly 50-year prison. Kanye originally reached out to Drake via Instagram video and asked him to reunite with him, to offer Larry Hoover an honor.
Drake met J. Prince and Hoover’s son Larry Jr. a few days after the post. And then it was confirmed that the show was going down. This is a great moment for Ye and Drizzy, as Kanye is using petty billboards in Toronto to promote his Donda album in opposition to Drake’s Certified Lover Boy.
