Larry Hoover is concerned about the benefit concert that will be held in his honor. According to his namesake son, Larry Hoover Jr., he is worried about the show possibly having a negative effect on his reputation and case.
“He’s aware of it [the concert], and he has to be concerned because he doesn’t know how it may affect him,” Hoover Jr. explained during an appearance on “The Drea O Show.” “He’s concerned that it may affect him negatively because it’s showing his influence, but his influence is positive.”
“Him being an influential person, it just won’t just disappear,” he continued. “He can’t make that disappear. But he can make it disappear the fact that he can show that he would never use his influence negatively.”
Hoover Jr. has long been working behind the scenes to bring the benefit concert to fruition. After tapping Kanye West to perform, he encouraged Drake to accept Ye’s plea, which called for the end of the rappers’ beef as well as their reunion for the benefit concert. Earlier this week, a massive stage was being built at the Los Angeles Coliseum, where the event is going down.
“We are gonna get the word out to as many people as we can. We gotta let the powers that be know that we want Larry Hoover in our community,” said Hoover Jr. “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.”
The Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert is slated to go down on Thursday (Dec. 9). Tickets for the event are still available. Fans also have the option to watch the show on Amazon Prime Video and select IMAX theaters across North America.
