Kanye West and Drake reunited for the “Free Larry Hoover” Benefit Concert with the intent to draw awareness to prison reform and bring justice to incarcerated Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover.
The concert was held in-person at the L.A. Colesium and was available to llive stream through Amazon platforms. The event was slated to start at 8 p.m. PT but in typical Drake and Kanye fashion, the concert didn’t start until close to 9:30 p.m. Kanye’s Sunday Service choir kicked the concert off until the two rappers took the stage.
Merch was sold at the concert to commemorate the event starting at $100 for a t-shirt, $200 for a hoodie both in light blue and white lettering saying “Free Larry Hoover” and $400 for jeans all in a light wash finish with the “Free Larry Hoover” message.

Kanye’s first set consisted of his classics, “Jesus Walks,” “All of the Lights,” “Flashing Lights,” “Good Life,” All Day,” Touch the Sky,” “Stronger,” “All Falls Down,” and “Mercy.” He also surprised fans and performed Drake’s “Find Your Love” to which the rapper reacted graciously.
Ye shocked the crowd when he gave a shoutout to his estranged wife Kim Kardashian in a rendition of his classic 2010 hit”Runaway” asking the reality starlet to run back to him.
Drake stuck to his more current hits performing “Wants & Needs,” “Life is Good,” “Girls Want Girls,” “Way 2 Sexy,” “Knife Talk,” “Laugh Now Cry Later,” and “God’s Plan.”
Kanye came back on stage for a second set performing “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” “N—– in Paris,” “Bound 2,” and “Come to Life.”
To end the concert, Kanye and Drake ended with their hit 2010 together “Forever.”
