Kanye West and Drake joined forces Thursday night to host the Free Larry Hoover benefit concert.
After a 90-minute delay, the event — which took place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum — finally kicked off with Ye’s choir descending the coliseum stairs and arranging themselves in the form of two crosses on either side of the walkway.
The group then performed harmonic covers of hit songs including the Fugees “Ready or Not” and Adele‘s “Easy on Me.”
After almost a half hour of that, the moment fans had been waiting for finally came. Kanye and Drake appeared at the top of the staircase and descended together, making their way onto a smoke-filled field. Kanye then made his way atop a circular dome stage structure while Drizzy drifted off into the distance.
Ye, who rocked a light green short-sleeve shirt that had “FREE HOOVER” printed on the back and light wash jeans that had the same saying on the front leg, galvanized fans with a live performance of some of his biggest hits, ranging from 2004’s “Jesus Walks,” to “Praise God,” a track from his recently released album, Donda.
After almost an hour, Drake finally joined Kanye on stage while he rapped “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” and after that, it was the Certified Lover Boy‘s turn to put on a show.
The Canadian native, who also wore a hoodie with the “FREE HOOVER” phrase on it, followed the same formula, performing a medley of bangers like “Way 2 Sexy,” “God’s Plan,” and “Life Is Good.” He also took a moment to shout-out and thank the Yeezy founder, who he referred to as “one of his idols.” So it appears that beef really is well and truly over.
