Fans expecting to pick up tickets Kanye West’s highly anticipated Free Larry Hoover concert are in for a sticker shock. Initially, tickets for the show were priced at $200-$500 but now they are reportedly reselling for as much as $7,500 apiece.
Drake and Kanye West are set to perform on the same stage after finally putting an end to their beef. The years-long feud had become one of the most bitter rivalries in the industry.
The two rappers regularly traded barbs, and sometimes it got nasty.
Drake has accused Kanye of letting Pusha T know that he has a son, which he then used as ammo and included in his diss track Story of Adidon.
Last summer Kanye leaked Drakes’s home address on Instagram. Weeks later Drake leaked an unreleased song by Kanye West and André 3000.
The feud escalated in September when the artists went head-to-head with their latest albums, Certified Lover Boy and DONDA. But apparently, the rappers have finally buried the hatchet and plan on performing their latest albums on the same stage.
The event is set to take place on December 9th at the Los Angeles Coliseum and aims to bring awareness to the incarceration of Larry Hoover.
Hoover was found guilty of murder, conspiracy, extortion, and money laundering, in 1997. The former gangster is currently serving six life sentences at a prison in Florence, Colorado.

Hoover has renounced his association with the Chicago street gang and Kanye has been advocating for his release ever since.
Fans took to social media to call out the high-priced tickets. One fan speculated that the beef was just a rouse by the rappers to bring in ticket sales, another said they wouldn’t pay that amount to see god himself perform.
“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.
