Drake and Ye settled their drama and reunited for a Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert in Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, live-streamed on Amazon Music, Prime Video and the Amazon Music Twitch Channel overnight (Friday 10 December).
During a performance of the rapper’s classic hit, Runaway from his 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, the 44-year-old pleads, “I need you to run right back to me” before adding: “More specifically, Kimberly.”
This is the third time in recent weeks Ye has publicly proclaimed his love for his ex-wife.
He made a speech about the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and their four children last month. “The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed in all these relationships,” he said during Los Angeles Mission’s Annual Thanksgiving event.
“We’ve made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband, but right now today, for whatever reason — I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic — but I’m here to change the narrative.”
The rapper also declared, “all I think about every day is how I get my family back together,” in a since-deleted Thanksgiving monologue on Instagram, acknowledging that his “wife did not like me wearing the red hat.”

The gig was set up to create “awareness of the need for prison and sentencing reform” – particularly the case of Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover. The 71-year-old has been behind bars for more than five decades, but supporters have claimed he has shown rehabilitation and denounced violence.
