Kanye West and Drake Set To Perform For “Free Larry Hoover” Benefit Concert At LA Memorial Coliseum

A date and venue has been confirmed for thec Kanye West and Drake benefit concert for Larry Hoover. On Saturday (Nov. 20), Ye took to Instagram to share a post featuring details regarding the show. “God’s plan,” he wrote in the caption. Written over an image bearing the 70-year-old former Chicago gang leader’s mug, the flyer reads: “Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert: Performance by Ye, special guest Drake.”

The show is slated to take place at the LA Memorial Coliseum on Thursday (Dec. 9). A rep for the stadium confirmed with REVOLT that the concert is scheduled, however tickets are not available just yet. The show marks a musical reunion of sorts for the rappers who recently ended their feud at the request of Larry Hoover Jr.

According to Revolt, Hoover Jr., the son of the Gangster Disciples co-founder, called on Drake and West to settle their differences and come together to support the release of his father in a recent interview with TMZ. “Drake, you’re a leader and leaders make decisions that people follow. And man, this would be big,” Larry Jr. told the outlet in a video interview. “This is like Michael Jackson and Prince, the one we never seen. It’s gon’ be a ripple effect. We need togetherness and peace in this hip hop community. We need togetherness and peace in our communities all throughout the United States. Be the leader and show, lead by example.”
