Just as soon as Kanye and Drake squashed their beef, the two confirmed their newfound friendship by teaming up and announcing their first benefit concert: ‘Free Larry Hoover’. Hypebeast released a statement marking this historic event since this will be Kanye’s first headlining live stadium performance in five years and aims “to raise awareness and support for Larry Hoover and the cause of prison and sentencing reform.”
According to Page Six, Larry Hoover, the founder of the Gangster Disciples gang, is currently in a Colorado prison serving six life sentences for ordering the 1973 murder of a 19-year-old drug dealer and then later running a drug ring from prison that raked in an estimated $100 million a year.
The Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert, which will feature performances by Kanye West and Drake, is officially set to take place on December 9 at the LA Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. Tickets are already on sale.
