Larry Hoover Jr., son of Gangster Disciples co-founder Larry Hoover, is calling on Drake and Kanye West to end their feud and come together to support the release of his father. Larry spoke with TMZ on Wednesday (Nov. 10), two days after Kanye made a similar request of Drake, asking the Certified Lover Boy crafter to join him onstage at a Larry Hoover benefit concert next month.

Drake, you’re a leader and leaders make decisions that people follow. And man, this would be big,” Larry Jr. told TMZ in a video interview. “This is like Michael Jackson and Prince, the one we never seen. It’s gon’ be a ripple effect. We need togetherness and peace in this hip hop community. We need togetherness and peace in our communities all throughout the United States. Be the leader and show, lead by example.”

“Egos cause problems. Let’s do this. Let’s be bigger than that,” he continued, adding that his father “would appreciate” the pair setting aside their beef.

As reported by REVOLT; Kanye, standing next to J. Prince, filmed a video message for Drake earlier this week inviting the Toronto-born star to perform with him at a Los Angeles concert on Dec. 7 “with the ultimate purpose being to free Larry Hoover.” Ye has been fighting to free the famed gangster, who was convicted of murder in the 70s and is currently serving six life sentences.

In his interview with TMZ, Larry Jr. said Drake previously met with him and his mother at J. Prince’s Texas home and said he’d like to help them “however he can.”

The concert thing, you know, we still working on that,” Larry explained. “[J. Prince] is dealing with Drake and speaking with him directly, so he would have to pass the information on for that, as far as him coming all the way in. But hopefully, in a few days, it’s looking good and it’s looking like he should be moving forward to maybe take part in this whole thing.”

Kanye also featured a monologue by Larry Jr. about his father on Donda, which Larry said helped fans see his dad as a “a human being.”

“You know, they look at my father as Larry Hoover the gangster and all the negative activity they put around his name and that the media has put there,” he told TMZ. “Donda was my first opportunity to give my narrative and let people see him as a person and know who he is.”
