Look at God: Drake & Ye Set To Unite At Benefit Concert On Behalf Of Larry Hoover’s Release

Pigs haven’t flown and hell hasn’t frozen over but God is working and Ye and Drake have made a mogul mends. The two icons have planted the hatchet and will unite on Dec. 9 to advocate for Larry Hoover’s release according to his son and namesake.

“Were going to get the word out to as many people as we can” said Larry Hoover Jr. “We got to let the powers that be know that we want Larry Hoover in our community” he expounded.

J. Prince has been a firm advocate for Hoover Sr. and conveyed plans for the duo to assist in freeing the presently imprisoned co creator of the Chicago gang Gangster Disciples via Instagram weeks back. Saying “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 #TheArtandScienceofRespect

Ye affirmed that notion by reposting Prince’s message on his own social media account. But is not new to the fight for Hoover’s ended 50 year confinement. The fashion designer met with former President Donald Trump in 2018 urging for clemency of Hoover after already serving a half of century in captivity. With two decades of that servitude being in isolation according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

“There’s infinite amounts of the universe and there’s alternate universe.” Kanye went on saying “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.” While adding “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.”

Ye went on to formally announce plans for the benefit concert on Saturday which is scheduled to commence on Saturday  Dec. 9, with the support of Drake as a “special guest.”

The event will be held at the Los Angeles Coliseum and tickets will be available starting Monday 1p.m. Eastern Time.

Do you feel that the media has covered Ye and Drakes reconciliation as heavy as their rap dissolution? Are you hoping that Hoover is granted the legal redemption he’s worthy of?

Lisa Blunt Rochester would go viral. Now the GOP member is speaking out explaining why she chose faith in a national moment of uncertainty.

The Capitol riot was due to Trump supporters who wished to alter the Nov. election results that elected Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris. The congresswoman detailed the experienced saying “We knew that something was going to happen, but I don’t think anyone expected what we saw. Prior to that day she’d requested a special seat in the House Chamber to have a special view of Biden’s Presidential affirmation. She described the day as suspicious stating that House members were receiving packages that prompted a building evacuation. “And the next thing we know, the rioters were right there at the chambers typically , I think I would just be scared or nervous. But it was more of a react, react. ‘Where do I go? How do you open this gas mask?” While others were bunkered to safety Rochester’s special seat didn’t allow such so she was instructed to hide.

I don’t know if they forgot we were in the balcony and all the doors were locked. So we got to that other side and I looked over the balcony and I saw law enforcement with their guns drawn at the door. And that’s when it really, really hit what this moment was all about. I saw these two poofs..come through the window and I didn’t know if it was a gunshot or not. But that was when it really hit how much we were in jeopardy.”

From there she divulged the range of emotions she was feeling, from fear to faith. Also sharing that her best friend in Congress namely U.S. Rep. Val Demings was in agreement with her in those moments.

“She grabbed my arm, and I grabbed her arm and she just looked at me and said: ‘Lisa…we know God is in control or God is bigger than this’…but that was the moment where I just kind of laid down my sadness and my anger, and I just started to pray–pray for healing, pray for peace pray for everyone’s safety.”

Later in the evening when Congress was secure to reconvene she made a statement via social media excerpts said “We came back and didn’t let that chaos that hate deter or destroy our purpose and so I’m just grateful.”

Donald Trumps Earns 2nd Impeachment for “Incitement of Insurrection” at the Capitol

In what feels like a political deja vu Donald Trump has earned his second impeachment. In a race to the bottom he is the first President to receive a second congressional rebuke. Republicans and Democrats joined hands on Wednesday as they were forced to do during the Capitol riots to indict the disgraced President. Ultimately delivering a bipartisan blow with a final vote in The United States House of Representatives that tallied 232-197.

The article impeachment said Trump “gravely endangered the security of the United States and it’s institutions of Government” by continuing to promote election conspiracies in regards to his loss. In an attempt to unlawfully overturn the election results by encouraging his base to attend a rally on January 6 that caused five deaths.

“He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power and imperiled a coequal branch of Government, the impeachment article went on to say “He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States” according to the impeachment article.

While the vote was underway Trump released a statement condemning any further far right protest saying “In light of reports of more demonstrations. I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for and is not what Americans stands for. I call on All Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank you.”

He has yet to call the Capitol rioters turned killers sons of b***hes as he did former NFL player Colin Kaepernick for quietly taking a knee in order to bring awareness to systematic racism and police violence. Kaepernick became a free agent shortly after his peaceful protest commenced and has been without a NFL job every since.
