Kanye West and Drake have decided to stop acting like high school rappers battling for supremacy on who got the most powerful punchlines and now act like mature men in the game, at least for now. After years of taking shots at each other on the internet and then in songs, Kanye and Drake have smoked the peace pipe and are now friends again.
Last week, Kanye West officially announced that he wanted to make peace with Drake in the name of a benefit concert on December 7th benefit concert in Los Angeles for 70-year-old Larry Hoover — a man who is currently serving a prison term for murder and other crimes and has renounced gang activity. Kanye is fighting for his pardon and wants to put Drake on that concert.
“This is Ye and J Prince. I’m making this video to address the ongoing back and forth between myself and Drake,” Kanye West said. “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 7th 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. 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.”
For now, it’s not clear whether Drake will perform at the benefit concert for Larry Hoover or not — but if I’m guessing, I would say he won’t appear there looking at the numerous lawsuit being filed against him and Travis Scott for the Astroworld tragedy that got ten people dead and many injured.
According to reports, Kanye West met with Drake in his mansion in Toronto — where Ye posted a picture of himself with Drake alongside music executive and promoter, J Prince. Reports say it’s J Prince who made Drake and Kanye West’s reunion possible.
Drake also confirmed the reunion by posting a video of himself with Kanye West in his mansion vibing and chilling to celebrate smoking the peace pipe after years of jabs throwing. It’s all good between Drake and Kanye, at least for now.
Some pessimistic people on the internet believe that this reunion won’t last long because they think it won’t take long for Kanye West to throw subtle shots at Drake. Since that hasn’t happened yet, they are now friends!
