The long-lasting beef between Drake and Kanye West could soon be history. At least if Kanye has its way. The 44-year-old posted a video statement on Instagram in which he reads his peace offer to Drake. The background and ultimate goal of the whole thing is the release from prison of the former Gangster Disciples head Larry Hoover .
Beef between Drake and Kanye West should come to an end
Both Kanye (now streaming on Apple Music ) and music promoter and label boss J. Prince have uploaded the video to their respective Instagram accounts. Both can be seen on the video, but only Ye has a say. This reads a prescribed text from his cell phone, which is aimed at Drake and aims to finish the beef of the two.
“I’M MAKING THIS VIDEO TO FOCUS ON THE BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN DRAKE AND ME. WE BOTH ATTACKED EACH OTHER, BUT NOW IT’S TIME TO PUT AN END TO IT.”
He then invited Drake to support him as a special guest at his concert in Los Angeles on December 7th. Thus the artists behind the two biggest albums of the year would be able to gather on one stage. In addition, they could jointly draw attention to the liberation of Larry Hoover. He has been in prison for the murder of a 19-year-old and his activities as a gang leader for almost 50 years.

Last month, J. Prince wanted to unite the two rappers so that they can raise awareness of Hoover’s situation. But even then, only Kanye responded to the demands. Because he thinks that ending the disputes could have a big impact.
“I BELIEVE THAT THIS EVENT NOT ONLY CREATES AWARENESS FOR OUR CAUSE, BUT IT CAN ALSO SHOW PEOPLE HOW MUCH WE CAN ACHIEVE IF WE PUT OUR PRIDE ASIDE AND COME TOGETHER.”
J. Prince describes his conversation with Kanye in more detail on Twitter. He reveals that the reconciliation between Drake and Kanye is a wish of Hoover.
It remains to be seen whether Drake will accept the offer of the two. The Canadian rapper is currently struggling enough with the aftermath of the mass panic at the Astroworld Festival . He was sued by alleged victims along with Travis Scott and recently published a statement on Instagram .
Later this week, Kanye will also be featured in the second part of his Drink Champs interview . Perhaps he will go into the situation with Drake there in more depth. The first part of the interview lasted almost two and a half hours and had some, let’s call it interesting statements from Kanye.
