Kanye West and Drake are placing apart their purple meat for a cause.
The rappers will host a succor concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Dec. 9 to recommend for the clemency of imprisoned Chicago gang chief Larry Flee.
West shared a poster for the match on Instagram on Saturday with the caption, “God’s Thought 🕊,” a nod to the title of Drake’s 2018 hit.
The “Jail” artist, 44, is listed as the headliner, whereas his Canadian counterpart, 35, is the night time’s particular customer.
In October, Drake’s mentor James Prince teased on Instagram that West and the “Method 2 Enticing” performer had been working “to free our brother Larry Hoover,” even though the music govt, 56, did now not remark at the time what they’d in the pipeline.
Then, earlier this week, Hoover’s son, Larry Hoover Jr., confirmed on the “Assassinate Grasp Song Display camouflage” that West and Drake had been planning a concert to abet free his father.
“We’re going to web the phrase out to as many folks as we are able to. We gotta let the powers that be know that we resolve Larry Hoover in our neighborhood,” stated Hoover Jr., who made a spoken phrase appearance on West’s most recent album, “Donda.”
Gangster Disciples co-founder Hoover, now 70, is serving six life sentences for ordering the 1973 slay of a 19-year-veteran drug dealer and later working a drug ring from penal complex that raked in an estimated $100 million a year.
West stated all over a 2018 assembly with then-President Donald Trump at the White Residence that freeing Hoover became “fundamental” to him.
“In an alternate universe, I am him,” the Grammy winner stated all over a rambling speech. “And I resolve on to dart and web him free on myth of he became doing decided within Chicago.”
West and Drake have had a rocky relationship for years, however they perceived to have known as a truce on Tuesday after they reunited at a Dave Chappelle comedy repeat and frolicked at the former “Degrassi” wide title’s Toronto mansion.
