Recently, Kanye West linked up with J. Prince and requested Drake to end their beef. “This is Ye and J. Prince. I’m making this video to address an ongoing back-and-forth between myself and Drake. Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other and it’s time to put it to rest. I’m asking Drake on Dec. 7 to join me onstage as a special guest to share the two biggest albums of the year. Live in Los Angeles with the ultimate purpose being to free Larry Hoover.”
“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 to the side and come together.”
J Prince claims that Hoover initiated the conversation. “So I met with @kanyewest to pass on the message from my brother Larry Hoover who said he would like to see peace between the two of them,” he tweeted. “Ye received this well and said thanks because he never had anyone that sat him down and explained things to him the way I did.”
Drake stated in a 2011 interview with The Source that Kanye was both his “friend and rival,” and that he aspired to be more successful than him: “When I was a kid trying to figure out what I liked, it was Ye who I related to the most. He was an artist, in every sense, from his cover art to his music. Now, I would say, he is really great [pause] competitor…and friend, at the same time… My goal is to surpass everything he’s accomplished. I don’t want to be as good as Kanye, I want to be better”.
Drake continued his attack of Kanye in December 2011, this time including Jay-Z, a longtime friend. Around this time, Kanye and How released their incredible joint album Watch The Throne.
In DJ Khaled’s ‘I’m On One’, Drake rapped: “I’m just feeling like the throne is for the taking/Watch me take it”.

The bond between Drake and Ye is convoluted, and it’s unclear when the dispute between them began. The previous several years have been turbulent for Kanye and Drake fans as the two have seemed to be at odds, trading barbs and slipping in trivial references to one another’s music. Ye offered to bring Drake a sampling that Drake had fallen in love with during one of his Wyoming recordings. Drake dropped his “poopity scoop” verses on “Lift Yourself” when Kanye decided to ban him from utilizing the sample after the two fell out.
When Pusha T dropped “Duppy Freestyle” in 2018 and rapped about Drake’s youngster, who hadn’t been disclosed to the world at the time, it was clear Ye and the 6 God were at conflict. In a rare sit-down interview with Elliot Wilson in 2019, Drake was asked about his bond with Kanye West. Drake didn’t appear to be in a hurry to rebuild based on his response. “, he explained.“I think he kind of recruited a guy with a similar dislike for me, no matter what he says in interviews,” he said. “He can tell whoever, ‘I got love for him or whatever, but it’s not love. It’s…there’s something there that bothers him deeply. Yeah, I can’t fix it for him, so it just is what it is.”
Later, Larry Hoover Jr. also asked Drizzy to come forward and connect with Kanye West for his father. “Drake, you a leader and leaders make decisions that people follow,” he said. “Man, this would be big. This is like Michael Jackson and Prince… the one we never seen. It’s going to be a ripple effect. We need peace and togetherness in Hip-Hop community. Man, be the leader and lead by example. Come together, put whatever y’all differences are down and I know you’re working at it and I know it’s hard. Egos cause problems. So, come on let’s do this. Let’s be bigger than that.”
“I would appreciate it and my father would appreciate it,” he continues. “Me and my mother spoke with Drake and he was saying that he is willing to extend the hand and help out however he can. The concert thing, we still working on that. Mr. Prince is dealing with Drake and speaking with him directly. so he would have to pretty much pass the information on for that as far as him coming all the way in. But hopefully, in a few days, it’s looking good, it’s looking like he should be moving forward to maybe take part in this whole thing. It’s all about unity and togetherness.”
Hoover, Jr. pleaded with Drake to settle the rivalry with Kanye in an interview with TMZ, with the ultimate objective of liberating his father, who was sentenced to 150-200 years in prison in 1973 for murdering a 19-year-old drug dealer. “This would be big.” This is akin to Michael Jackson and Prince, the one we’d never seen before, and there will be ripple effect. In our hip-hop culture, we need harmony and peace,” Hoover, Jr. said, adding that his father is eligible for release under the 2018 First Step Act sentencing reform measure.
Kanye West and Drake’s recent reunion, which transpired at a Larry Hoover benefit event in December, left Kendrick Lamar “perplexed,” according to songs on his new album. On the album’s track ‘Father Time,’ the artist, who launched his latest album ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ today (May 13), raps on his amazement at the hip-hop titans’ reunion after years of animosity. “Daddy issues kept me competitive, that’s a fact, n****/ I don’t give a f**k what’s the narrative / I am that n**** / When Kanye got back with Drake, I was slightly confused / Guess I’m not as mature as I think, got some healin’ to do / Egotistic.”
Drake and Kanye West were two of the most streamed rappers in 2022 on Spotify. The Toronto rap star was streamed 13.8 million times in the whole year, while Ye earned 7.2 billion streams in the past year. According to IFPI, the two were also among the top 20 global recording artists of 2022.
