How To Watch Kanye West and Drake’s ‘Free Larry Hoover’ Concert




Last month, Drake and Kanye West squashed their beef in the name of Larry Hoover.

In partnership with Amazon, the two artists have come together to do a ‘Free Larry Hoover’ concert at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to “raise awareness of the need for prison and sentencing reform.” Going down Thursday, Dec. 9, at 8 PM PST/11 PM EST, the show will be live streamed for free on Amazon’s Prime Video, as well as Amazon Music and Amazon’s Music Twitch Channel.

Select IMAX theaters will also be showcasing the concert as a one night only event. Tickets can be purchased here.

“We’re extremely proud to be working with Kanye and Drake on this historic concert in support of a cause they are both so passionate about, and to collaborate across Amazon for this epic entertainment event,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. 

The concert serves as a charity event for Hoover, who was convicted in 1997 on charges of murder, conspiracy, extortion and money laundering. Hoover is the co-founder of the Chicago Gangster Disciples and is serving six life sentences.

West featured Hoover’s son Larry Hoover Jr. on his “Donda” album and spoke with him during his interview on Drink Champs.

“With Ye, Drake, and J Prince United to Advocate For My Father’s Release, We Can Take Our Plea For Redemption Worldwide And Show That We Are Truly Stronger Together On Behalf Of Any and Everyone with a Love One Wrongly Or Unjustly Incarcerated…. Free My Father!” said Larry Hoover, Jr. in a statement.

This concert ends a longstanding feud between Kanye West and Drake after the relationship between the two artists turned sour during the feud between G.O.O.D. Music president, Pusha T and Drake. Drake accused Kanye of leaking the news that he had a son to Pusha T.

However, Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J. Prince brought Ye and Drake together last month after Ye released a video extending an olive branch to Drake to join him for a concert that would raise awareness for Larry Hoover’s case and prison reform.

The ‘Free Larry Hoover’ concert serves as Drake’s first live performance since the tragedy at Travis Scott‘s Astroworld Fest. which resulted in ten people dead after a crowd surge ensued. He released his sixth studio album, ‘Certified Lover Boy,’ in September.
