Tonight’s “Free Larry Hoover” benefit concert hosted by Kanye West with special guest Drake will definitively go down as one of the more memorable moments in Hip Hop history. As we all know, the extensive back and forth beef that Drake and Kanye has had it’s peaks and valleys in the past, but several weeks ago they put their differences aside for tonight’s benefit concert.
Sunday Service Choir kicked off the show with renditions of Adele’s “Easy On Me” and other songs including “Ready Or Not”, and “Back to Life” just before Kanye and Drake finally made their walk down the coliseum steps. Kanye took the stage first hitting the ground running with classics like “Jesus Walks”, “Gold Digger”, and “All Falls Down.”
Kanye continued to flow through his discography effortlessly performing records from “Late Registration”, “808s and Heartbreak”, and “YEEZUS”, before returning to “Graduation”, and finally his latest album “Donda.” Ye even performed Drake’s hit record “Find Your Love”, which was written and intended for Kanye originally. Kanye’s energy on stage radiated through the screen, for the viewers at home as he jumped, ran, and even danced around every section of the stage playing the songs that granted him the opportunity at such a historic moment.
Drake followed shortly after with a heartfelt cover of “24”, from West’s “Donda.” Following the touching cover, the self proclaimed “Six God” then played several songs from his latest album “Certified Lover Boy”, including “No Friends In the Industry”, “Way 2 Sexy”, “In The Bible”, and “Knife Talk.” Throughout his set, Drake took several moments in-between records to address the crowd and remind them of how impactful and special the concert truly was.
In the closing moments of the show, Kanye returned to the stage to play songs like “Bound 2”, “Father Stretch My Hands”, and “Come To Life.” The show closed with the two rappers performing “Forever”, a 2009 hit with a verse from both artists.
