Tune in to see Ye headline his first show in 5 years.
Kanye West – who is now legally known as Ye – and Drake, 2 of the most popular rappers in the world, are joining forces for a good cause.
The musicians are reuniting for a concert meant to raise awareness for the need for prison and sentencing reform and to benefit Larry Hoover. Co-founder of the Chicago street gang Gangster Disciples, Hoover is currently serving 6 life sentences in prison.
This is Ye's first headlining show in 5 years, ever since he cancelled his Saint Pablo Tour early. Drake joining him is an event for fans of both artists, especially since the 2 weren't on great terms until recently. If you're eager to see them together on stage, here's how to watch live.

The concert will take place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and is scheduled to kick off on Thursday 9 December at 8pm Pacific Time in the US, which is Friday, 10 December at 4pm AEDT.
