Larry Hoover, the notorious alleged crime lord, has spent years in jail. Some well-known figures, on the other hand, have been working tirelessly to get him out. Rapper Kanye West has been one of those celebrities bringing attention to Hoover’s case; however, it appears that Drake, Kanye West, and J. Prince are combining forces.
Who Is Larry Hoover?
Hoover was the leader of a Chicago gang called Supreme Gangsters, which joined with another to form Black Gangster Disciple Nation. In 1973, Hoover was sentenced to 150 to 200 years in prison for murdering a drug dealer, Williams Young. On February 26, 1973, Young was murdered. Hoover and his accomplice, Andrew Howard, were indicted for the crime. In Illinois, Hoover was incarcerated in Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill at the maximum-security level.
In his lifetime, Hoover served as a model of success for many who were incarcerated; he became a role model and an inspiration to those within the prison system. He was also able to encourage his outside followers to put an end to the violence and instead advocate for education.Hoover urged members of the Disciples to get an education, acquire a profession, and become model citizens in their communities. The gang that used to distribute narcotics and promote lawlessness is now known as Growth & Development rather than Gangster Disciple.
In a recent post shared on Instagram, J. Prince, a music industry tycoon, claimed that he’s being aided by Drake and Kanye to formulate a strategy to get Hoover freed from jail, as cited by The Source.
It’s still unclear what the details of the plan to set Hoover free entail. Hopefully, with the help of Drake, Hoover will be let out soon. Keep an eye out for further updates!!!
