Kanye ‘Ye’ West wants Drake to end feud by joining him for an event aimed to help free Larry Hoover


Kanye ‘Ye’ West is requesting Drake to help him in an effort to free Larry Hoover from prison.

Ye, 44, was seen in an Instagram clip uploaded by music executive and promoter J. Prince, 57, in which he spoke about the rivalry with Drake, 35, and his wish to put it behind them to help ‘with the ultimate purpose being to free Larry Hoover.’

J. Prince said the clip was filmed at the Rothko Chapel in Houston, adding, ‘It wasn’t in my plans to meet him there but I must say I’m glad I didn’t allow a worship place for God to detour our meeting.’

The latest: Kanye ‘Ye’ West, 44, is requesting Drake, 35, to help him in an effort to free Larry Hoover, 70, from prison with a collaboration next month in LA 

In the clip, Ye stood alongside J. Prince and said, ‘This is Ye and J. Prince. I’m making this video to address an ongoing back-and-forth between myself and Drake. Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other and it’s time to put it to rest.’

Ye referenced the commercial success of his album Donda and Drake’s Certified Lover Boy in extending the invitation for his event planned for next month.

‘I’m asking Drake on December 7 to join me onstage as a special guest to share the two biggest albums of the year live in Los Angeles,’ he said.

Ye said that he thinks the 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.’

In his Instagram post, J. Prince said that Hoover was hoping to end the unrest between Ye and Drake.

‘I met with Ye to pass on the message from my brother Larry Hoover who said he would like to see peace between the two of them,’ he wrote. ‘Ye received this well and said thanks because he never had anyone that sat him down and explained things to him the way I did. I’m looking forward to all of us working together in unison to elevate our communities around the world.’

The ongoing rift between Ye and Drake escalated this year as the pair geared up for the releases of their respective albums. The back-and-forth included Ye leaking Drake’s home address online, after which Drake seemingly insulted him on the track 7am on Bridle Path. Drake also leaked an unreleased collaboration between Ye and André 3000 titled Life of the Party.

West last week had positive sentiments about Drake while appearing on the Drink Champs podcast on Revolt TV.

‘Man, I love Drake,’ he said. ‘I love all artists, period, but not even to mention, I love Drake. I love all this. Let’s have Drake just have his spot of what he meant in my life, specifically, and what he’s meant to rap, you know, over the past decade, specifically.’

Ye has past sought to free Hoover, the founder of Chicago’s Gangster Disciples street gang who in 1973 received a life sentence in prison following a murder conviction. Hoover was subsequently sentenced to six additional life sentences in 1997 after he was found guilty in connection with ongoing gang involvement.

Ye collaborated with Hoover’s son, Larry Hoover Jr. on the song Jesus Lord earlier this year, in which Hoover Jr. showed his gratitude for West’s continued efforts.

In his October 11, 2018 meeting with former President Donald Trump in the Oval Office, Ye lobbied the president to free Hoover ‘because he started doing positive for the community’ in Chicago.

‘It’s very important for me to get Hoover out because in an alternate universe, I am him and I have to go and get him free,’ he said at the time.

This past July, a federal judge denied a motion to grant Hoover, 70, an abridged sentence under the FIRST STEP Act, a law that grants prisoners sentence leniency based on good behavior and training for a job.
