Kanye West has made it known that he wants to put his feud with Canadian rapper Drake to ‘rest’ thus inviting him to join him on stage for a benefit concert.
On Monday, Nov. 8,Music executive, J Prince took to Twitter to post a video with the rapper, 44, from the Rothko Chapel in Houston, Texas, which featured Kanye requesting that Drake, 35, to “come together” and join him on stage for a benefit concert to free Larry Hoover, the convicted co-founder of Chicago street gang Gangster Disciples.
Meanwhile,this reconciliation attempt comes after Drake joined Travis Scott for day one at his now-canceled Astroworld Festival, which left eight dead and injured over 300 after a crowd surge.
Alongside the video,J wrote ,
“I met with @kanyewest night in Htown at the Rothko Chapel, “It wasn’t in my plans to meet him there but I must say I’m glad I didn’t allow a worship place for God to detour our meeting.
There will come a time in life where we all should embrace the movement thinking, over the moment thinking. Moment thinking gets us stuck in the cycle of confusion, revenge, killings, and things of darkness that take you to a place worse than slavery.
kanye west was heard as he readsfrom his phone,
“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 being to free Larry Hoover.”
He added,“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.”
J also explained in a follow up tweet that he met with the rapper after Larry “said he would like to see peace between” Kanye and Drake. “Ye received this well and said thanks because he never had anyone that sat him down and explained things to him the way I did,” he wrote, adding, “I’m looking forward to all of us working together in unison to elevate our communities around the world.”
