Kanye West and Drake had quite a rivalry going on, but that seems to be water under the bridge now. They have joined forces for a Free Larry Hoover concert, but it didn’t happen all at once.
J. Prince was recently seen with Big Boy for Hot 92.3 in Los Angeles. Their little chat was about Kanye West and Drake’s Larry Hoover Benefit Concert.
The benefit concert was possible because of their immense hard work. They had to put a lot of work to get the two megastars to reconcile their differences. J prince helped them sort out their differences.
“We have to start with the name Larry Hoover. He planted the seed,” J. Prince told Big Boy. “He wanted to see Kanye and Drake come together in the name of peace. His son Larry Jr. was hanging out with Kanye a lot, and of course, Drake is my son, but Hoover planted the seed, and I watered it.” He continued.
“I painted the bigger picture to Drake. I let him know that this is a moment and movement that can save lives. I believe by Drake and Kanye being an example, as two of hip-hop’s top artists, that lives would be saved.”
J. Prince continued, “I believe this is going to be imitated and it’s important to be an example to those that look up to you and that meant something to Drake, just the life-saving event wrapped around putting the spotlight on injustice, prison reform, and my brother Larry Hoover. Everything is icing on the cake after that because he never envisioned things like that. So I had to tap into a power greater than the anger or whatever these guys had for one another.”
This event will be West’s first show in five years. He abruptly canceled his 2016 Life of Pablo run mid-tour. Recently, Amazon announced that it will be live streaming the concert on Prime Video, the Amazon Music app and the Amazon Music Twitch channel.
