It's almost time for Kanye and Drake's big mega-concert, and if you tune in live you can watch it for free. Yes, you don't even need to leave the house to watch. The megastars are teaming up for The Free Larry Hoover concert, a benefit show that's raising funds for nonprofits dedicated to prison reform.

Kanye and Drake Concert start time, ways to watch

The Kanye West and Drake "Free Larry Hoover" concert broadcast on Thursday (Dec. 9).
• Time: 11 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. PT / 4 a.m. GMT
• Where: Amazon Prime (opens in new tab), Amazon Music (opens in new tab) and Twitch (opens in new tab)

The concert has some added context, though, about its stars. West and Drake were the furthest thing from friends for ages, until as The Los Angeles Times (opens in new tab) reports, one man managed to stop the beef. 

J. Prince, a titan of the Houston rap scene, managed to get the two to calm down over their shared desire to get Larry Hoover, the 71-year-old former leader of Gangster Disciples (the street and prison gang) out of jail. Hoover is currently serving a lifetime sentence in a federal supermax prison. 

Soon, a video posted to Drake's Instagram account (opens in new tab) saw West and Drake enjoying themselves with music in the background. And the concert, taking place tonight, is supposed to be huge, with a reported budget (opens in new tab) of $10 million USD.
