The bitter feud between Kanye West and Drake may finally come to an end.
After years of beefing, Ye extended an olive branch to Drizzy Monday night, inviting him to perform with him at an event on December 7 in Los Angeles. West offered the invitation during a social media video posted by Rap-A-Lot CEO J Prince.
“I’m making this video to address the ongoing back and forth between myself and Drake. Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other, and it’s time to put it to rest,” Yeezy said. “I’m asking Drake on December 7 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.”
Hoover, a co-founder of Chicago’s Gangster Disciples gang, is currently incarcerated at ADX Florence in Colorado. Kanye mentions him on the Donda album.
After working together for years, the Kanye/Drake beef was ignited in 2018 when Pusha T accused the Champagne Papi of using a ghostwriter in the song “Infrared,” which West produced. The feud continued since then, and this year, Drake disses Kanye on Trippie Redd‘s track, “Betrayal, “with the lyrics, “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know / Forty-five, forty-four (burned out) let it go / ‘Ye ain’t changin’ s*** for me, it’s set in stone.”
Kanye responded by posting, and then deleting, Drake’s home address on Instagram.
I met with @kanyewest night in Htown at the Rothko Chapel. It wasn’t in my plans to meet him there but I must say I’m glad I didn’t allow a worship place for God to detour our meeting. pic.twitter.com/GM9FIN80Uj
