Tim Hinshaw, Amazon’s head of hip-hop and R&B said in a statement per Stereogum that Amazon is excited to give fans around the world the opportunity to see Drake and Kanye perform, “Kanye and Drake have spent their careers pushing boundaries and defining culture, and we’re excited to give fans around the world a front-row seat to this concert. We have made Amazon Music and Prime Video destinations where artists can make their most ambitious ideas a reality—this concert is just the latest example.”
The concert comes after the two rappers decided to put their feud to rest and come together to free Larry Hoover, who is currently incarcerated in Colorado, and raise awareness for prison and sentencing reform. The concert will also benefit community advocacy groups such as Ex-Cons For Community And Social Change, Hustle 2.0, and Uptown People’s Law Center.
