Kanye and Drake concert posters appear in Toronto

Sharing is caring!

Hip-hop lovers are about to experience a particularly emotional winter with the Drake and Kanye West concert fast approaching. Recall that the two legends of US Rap dragged a long-publicized rivalry. However, Ye ended this cold war with a public apology. The Chicago rapper then invited his Canadian counterpart on behalf of the ”  Free Larry Hoover show “. For this reason, some posters of said concert were displayed in the city of origin of 6 God while the concert is supposed to be held in another state.  

An XXL advertising campaign for the Ye and Drizzy concert

We are less than two weeks from the ”  Free Larry Hoover show “. Kanye West and Drake’s widely publicized rivalry and the reunion that ensued resulted in a one-of-a-kind event. Behind the reconciliation of the two rap titans, their next joint concert promises to be hot and is scheduled for Thursday, December 9 . As a result, on the evening of November 26, billboards promoting the show appeared in Drake’s hometown of Toronto.

As a reminder, the concert should take place at the Forum in Los Angeles, California. The seats for the show have yet to be sold as they should for a reason that makes sense. Concretely, fans were stunned by the excessively high price of tickets when they went on sale last week. We can therefore deduce that this is what somewhat cooled the enthusiasm of the fans compared to the concert. To motivate fans, a new advertising campaign is launched in the city of Toronto.

At the same time, the show is officially classified as a Ye concert, but with Drake as a special guest. On the other hand, organizer J. Prince shared a teaser revealing that there may be other artists for the concert in support of Larry Hoover. Clearly, said concert is a movement whose goal is to raise awareness and help the cause of Larry Hoover to facilitate his release from prison.

As a reminder, Hoover has been languishing behind bars for decades because of a sentence of nearly 50 years in prison. In fact, the Chicago native is believed to be involved in gang-related crimes with the Chicago Gangster Disciples in the 1970s. So when Kanye initially contacted Drake via an Instagram video, he said the goal was to do so. in honor of Larry Hoover. Subsequently, Drake met J. Prince and Hoover’s son Larry Jr. a few days later, and confirmed his participation in the show.

Kanye and Drake overtaken by fate

We remember that Kanye used small billboards in Toronto in September to promote his album ”  Donda  “. Note also that Ye’s opus was in competition with  Drake’s “  Certified Lover Boy ” at the top of the Billboard Charts. Today, ironically, the two superstars will share a single poster, and Drizzy is hoping to attract many of his fans to the Los Angeles show.

A historic moment that lovers of US rap will experience on December 9th live. According to some critics, this event could open a new era of collaboration for the two icons of American rap.

Until the day of the concert, it is hoped that the display of billboards in the city of Toronto will reach even more people.
