Kanye West has taken to Instagram to confirm that he will be sharing a stage with Drake, as the two attempt to put their differences aside to perform to fans.
The 44-year-old said: “This is Ye and J. Prince. I’m making this video to address the 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.
“I’m asking Drake on December 7 to join me on stage as a special guest to share the two biggest albums of the year, live in Los Angeles, with the ultimate purpose to free Larry Hoover.”
Kanye went on to say: “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 to the side and come together.”
It seems that Drake agreed with the rapper, as a digital flyer has been posted to Kanye’s Instagram.
The show is due to take place on December 9, two days after Kanye initially suggested, at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
Titled ‘Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert’, the event aims to raise awareness to the imprisoned Larry Hoover.
Hoover is currently serving six life sentences for his alleged involvement in “a gang-affiliated murder” according to NewsOne, he was reportedly sentenced to 200 years in prison.
The news of Drake and Kanye coming together to perform comes as Kim Kardashian, Kanye’s separated wife, and mother of his four children, is rumoured to be dating Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.
Kanye and Kim split in February of this year and the separated couple have both been rumoured to be dating.
Although Kanye has been romantically linked with 22-year-old model Vinetria, during an appearance on the Drink Champs podcast, he pointed out that the divorce between himself and Kim is not yet finalised.
He said: “SNL making my wife say, ‘I divorced him’ on TV because they just wanted to get that bar off.”
“And I ain’t never even seen the papers; we’re not even divorced. That ain’t no joke to me. My kids want their parents to stay together. I want … us to be together.”
Rumours sparked up about a budding romance between the two after Kim, 41, hosted Saturday Night Live on October 9.
Kim and Pete shared a kiss on the show, causing the audience to erupt into cheers, as they took on the roles of Aladdin and Jasmine in a sketch based on the classic Disney movie.
