Larry Hoover Jr. Shares Photo With Drake and J. Prince

After Kanye West called to meet with Drake and host a show to free Larry Hoover, Larry Hoover Jr. posted a picture of him with Drake taken a few months ago.

Larry Hoover’s son has made several efforts to free his father – including soliciting the help of celebrities. His father is currently serving six life sentences for the murder of a drug dealer in 1973. He recently met with J. Prince and Drake as well. 

Hoover Jr. posted a picture with the rappers together on Instagram with the hashtags #freemyfather#freelarryhoover, and #larryhoover.

While the picture appears as if Drake is entertaining the idea of Kanye West’s request to join a charity concert in Los Angeles next month in an effort to free Hoover, TMZ confirmed that this photo was taken before J. Prince and Kanye’s meeting and subsequent video. According to a source from Hoover Jr.’s camp, this specific meeting happened a few months ago.

The upcoming episode of Drink Champs will have the second half of N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s interview with Kanye West. According to the trailer, it will also feature Hoover Jr.

In the trailer, Kanye says that the main reason he wants to do the charity concert with Drake is to bring light to Larry Hoover. Earlier this week, J. Prince posted a video to Instagram of him with the rapper asking Drake to join him in L.A. to do the benefit show.

“Drake, you’re a leader and leaders make decisions that people follow,” he said in his message. “And man, this would be big. This is like Michael Jackson and Prince, the one we never seen. It’s gon’ be a ripple effect. We need togetherness and peace in this hip-hop community. We need togetherness and peace in our communities all throughout the United States. Be the leader and show, lead by example.”

Drake has yet to reply to Kanye’s request.
