  /  12.16.2021

This “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” segment explores how prior to Kanye West and Drake’s “Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert,” there was trepidation on the part of Larry Hoover Jr. The son of the incarcerated co-founder of Chicago’s Gangster Disciples member was reportedly worried about the effectiveness of the event. In the end, did the concert help or hurt Larry Sr.’s case? Is he now one step closer to finally being freed from prison? He’s been serving multiple life sentences for decades now. We also explore the concert’s profits and who really benefited from merchandise/ticket sales.
