The Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert, which will feature performances by Kanye West and Drake, is officially set to take place on December 9 at the LA Coliseum in Los Angeles, California.

A press release states that the historic event will mark Ye’s first headlining live stadium performance in five years and aims “to raise awareness and support for Larry Hoover and the cause of prison and sentencing reform.” The benefit concert also names Drake as a special guest as the two artists recently squashed their years-long beef.

“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 aside and come together,” West said in a statement.

Larry Hoover, Jr. also shared a few words:

“BRINGING THESE TWO GREAT ARTISTS TOGETHER FOR THE CULTURE AND THE CAUSE OF PRISON REFORM HAS BEEN AN HONOR” SAID J PRINCE. “THROUGH MY WORK WITH LARRY HOOVER AND HIS FAMILY, I’VE REALLY HAD MY EYES OPENED TO THE PLIGHT OF INCARCERATED PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY, AND I HOPE FANS OF YE AND DRAKE WILL TAKE THE TIME TO DO THE SAME.”

“WITH YE, DRAKE, AND J PRINCE UNITED TO ADVOCATE FOR MY FATHER‘S RELEASE, WE CAN TAKE OUR PLEA FOR REDEMPTION WORLDWIDE AND SHOW THAT WE ARE TRULY STRONGER TOGETHER

ON BEHALF OF ANY AND EVERYONE WITH A LOVE ONE WRONGLY OR UNJUSTLY INCARCERATED…. FREE MY FATHER!”

Tickets go on sale on November 22 at 10 a.m. PST. The Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert takes place December 9.

In related news, Drake is now the first artist to have two records each spend 400 weeks on the Billboard 200.
