Days after Kanye West and Drake called a truce in their years-long beef, Ye’s Sunday Service paid homage to the 6 God. On the Nov. 21 service, the choir remixed Drizzy’s “God’s Plan,” adding a gospel spin to the 2018 record. The song was reportedly played twice at the event.
The addition of Drake’s song to Ye’s gospel service comes in the wake of the rappers’ reconciliation. The artists had gone back and forth for years, recently throwing subtle shots at each other ahead of the releases of Donda and Certified Lover Boy, but Ye decided they should put their differences aside for a good cause: the fight for Larry Hoover’s freedom.
Jumping on social media, the Chi-town native asked Drake to join him on stage for a special concert advocating for the release of the co-founder of Chicago’s Gangster Disciples gang, who is serving six life sentences for a murder charge.
“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,” West said. After an additional plea from Hoover’s namesake son, Drake and Ye let bygones be bygones.
The Free Larry Hoover Benefit concert is now slated to go down on Dec. 9 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, according to posts shared by Ye and Drake. Hoover Jr. previously confirmed the news as well as the intentions behind the event.
“We are gonna get the word out to as many people as we can,” he previously said. “We gotta let the powers that be know that we want Larry Hoover in our community. That’s gonna be a big way to do it. Plus, we want to show people of other communities that we can come together in peace.”
While Kanye and Drake are set to perform, Hoover Jr. said that it’s possible for other artists to make appearances as well. “You know, Kanye and Drake, they have star power,” he explained. “I don’t know who else may be there. It’s very possible—anybody in the business, I believe, those are some of the guys to work with and be a part of whatever they do.”
