Kanye West And Drake’s ‘Free Larry Hoover’ Benefit To Air At A Sydney Cinema

Kanye West is out to prove the beef between he and Drake has been squashed, with two of the world’s biggest artists coming together for West’s one-off Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert, which is set to stream directly to a Sydney cinema from the iconic LA Coliseum.

The concert is set to stream directly to the Hoyts Cinema at Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter this Friday, 10th December at 3PM.

The historic concert, which will be headlined by West, aims to raise awareness and support for Larry Hoover, and in turn, prison and sentencing reform in the US.

“I believe this 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 aside and come together,” said West.

Drake is set to feature in the show as a special guest.

“Bringing these two great artists together for the culture and cause of prison reform has been an honor” said the leader of the movement J Prince.

“Through my work with Larry Hoover and his family, I’ve really had my eyes opened to the plight of incarcerated people in this country, and I hope fans of Ye and Drake will take the time to do the same.”

Tickets for the livestream event are on sale now via Ticketek, and are extremely limited. Cop them here.

Hoover has spent the last 45 years at the maximum security ADX Supermax Federal Prison in Colorado. Over the course of his imprisonment, he has been a vocal advocate and activist seeking to quell gang violence in the US.

The son of Hoover, Larry Hoover Jr., features on West’s new album Donda on tracks ‘Jesus Lord’ and ‘Jesus Lord Pt. 2’. He speaks on both tracks about his father’s incarceration and the need for reform.
