West will headline the show, confirming Drake’s appearance as a special guest last month. It came after the couple reunited a week earlier, crushing an ox that had been running since 2009. West had extended an olive branch to Drake in early November, inviting him to appear on the show to raise awareness and defend freedom. de Hoover, who is currently serving six life sentences for charges related to gang activity.
“I believe this event will not only raise awareness for our cause, but will prove to people everywhere how much more we can accomplish when we put aside our pride and come together,” West said at the time. Hoover’s son, Larry Hoover Jr, urged Drake to accept Ye’s peace offer, saying Drake is “a leader and leaders make decisions that people follow.”
After the latter accepted West’s invitation, Hoover Jr. spoke about the show in an interview for the Murder Master’s Music Show. “We’re going to get the word out to as many people as possible,” he said. “We need to let the powers that be know that we want Larry Hoover in our community. It’s going to be a great way to do it. Moreover, we want to show people from other communities that we can come together in peace.
Earlier this week, aerial footage captured by a photojournalist revealed an ambitious stage was being built for the show.
