After Drake agreed to join Ye for a special show for Larry Hoover, West has covered ‘God’s Plan’ at Sunday Service.
Earlier this month, West reached out to Drake to leave their rivalry behind and join him for a concert in aid of Larry Hoover. He has been in prison since 1973 when he was convicted of killing 19-year-old drug dealer William ‘Pooky’ Young. However, Hoover’s sentence has since been extended for conspiracy, extortion, and money laundering.
“Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other and it’s time to put it to rest,” West said. “I’m asking Drake on December 7 to join me on stage as a special guest to share the two biggest albums of the year, live in Los Angeles, with the ultimate purpose being to free Larry Hoover.
“I believe this event will not only bring awareness to our cause, but prove to people – everywhere – how much more we can accomplish when we lay our pride to the side and come together.”
The concert is going ahead on December 9th at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. However, before then, Ye has given fans a taste of what to expect when the two biggest names in hip-hop come together later this year.
Hoover’s son had previously piled on the pressure for the Canadian to accept, telling TMZ, “Drake, you a leader and leaders make decisions that people follow. Man, this would be big. This is like Michael Jackson and Prince. Come together, put whatever y’all differences are down. Let’s be bigger than that.
“[The concert] is also to pass the message that [my father] qualifies to come home as far as the First Step Act is concerned,” he added. “People are concerned about what he might do, but this is the type of things that he can do — he can bring people together, he can hopefully bring a lot of peace to our community.”
