Drake and Kanye West have been engaged in feuds for years and the rivalry ratcheted up with the release of their respective albums. Now, According to J Prince, this two rappers have set their disparities to the side and collaborating together for a project.
“IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN YOU PLAN TO FAIL. “Good plans in the making to free our brother Larry Hoover with the support of @champagnepapi and @kanyewest.” Prince wrote in the caption. The picture featured Prince alongside Kanye, Hoover’s wife Winndye Jenkins, and their son Larry Hoover Jr.
“There’s infinite amounts of the universe and there’s alternate universe,” Ye said at the time. “So it’s very important for me to get Hoover out because in an alternate universe, I am him and I have to go and get him free.
“Because he was doing positive inside Chicago just like I’m moving back to Chicago, and it’s not just about, you know, getting on stage and being an entertainer and having a monolithic voice that’s forced to be a specific part.”
Kanye also featured Hoover’s son, Larry Hoover Jr. on the Donda tracks, “Jesus Lord” and “Jesus Lord, Pt. 2.”
Hoover, credited with helping to establish the Gangsta Disciples in mid 1970s Chicago, was sentenced for homicide in 1973. He got a lifelong incarceration and afterward in 1997, was seen as liable of various charges in the wake of being blamed for running the pack and its activities from inside jail. Hoover has since repudiated group action, endeavoring to rebrand the importance of GD as “Development and Development,” and attempts to advance harmony in Chicago.
Champagne Papi’s part in the entirety of this is yet to be uncovered. Any coordinated effort would be a surprising development thinking about the long-running aggression among him and Kanye.
Nonetheless, it would not be the first run through J Prince professes to have intervened between the two. Back in 2018 in a meeting on “Influence In The Morning” Price expressed that he halted Drake dropping a diss track that would have “hurt families.”
