Together, they're raising awareness about prison reform.
Kanye West and Drake have a long history of beef, and I mean, long. But even the worst of frenemies can turn things around, and they finally squashed it all on Nov. 16. The rappers were filmed making amends, and it seems like they’re on their way to forming a solid friendship. What better way to commemorate their newfound friendship than with a live performance? The two A-list rappers are hosting a joint concert in partnership with Amazon and yes, you can watch it all go down online.
Fans were shook when Drake took to Instagram in November 2021 and posted a video causally hanging with West. The unlikely duo had attended a show featuring comedian Dave Chappelle, and it seemed they both finally decided to lay down their armor and enjoy the laughter-filled night. Several weeks later, they surprised fans yet again with the concert announcement. Hosted by Amazon, the two hitmakers are set to hit the stage at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Dec. 9. The show will mark West’s first headlining show in five years, and Drake is listed as the “special guest” for the night. The concert is also something fans can feel good about streaming. Titled The Free Larry Hoover benefit concert, it will raise awareness of the need for prison and sentencing reform.

The Date For Kanye West’s Amazon Benefit Concert
The concert will take place on Thursday, Dec. 9. The show is a ~big~ deal for Ye, who hasn’t played a headlining set in five years.
