Kanye West and Drake appear to have made amends.

The Donda rapper shared a photo of himself alongside Drake and J Prince on Instagram Tuesday, captioning the post with a single dove emoji. J Prince also shared the image, writing that the group had a “beautiful night” in Canada on Monday.

In his caption, J Prince also alludes that Drake, 35, agreed to perform with West, 44, on stage next month. In a video last week, West proposed the idea as a concert to benefit Larry Hoover, the co-founder of the Gangster Disciples gang, who is currently in prison in Colorado.

“Let’s make history December 9 Free Larry Hoover Concert,” J Prince wrote.

In a post of his own, Drake shared two videos from the occasion. The first video features comedian Dave Chappelle addressing a crowd in what seems to be Drake’s Toronto home.

The second video shows the Certified Lover Boy rapper with his arm around West as they look down at the camera and dance to music playing in the background. “You have reached your destination 📍,” Drake captioned the post.

The meetup comes about a week after West addressed his years-long feud with Drake in a video shared by J Prince on Twitter, saying that he was ready to put it “to rest.”

“I’m making this video to address the ongoing back-and-forth between myself and Drake,” West said in the video. “Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other and it’s time to put it to rest.”

Inviting Drake to perform with him, West concluded: “I believe this even will not only bring awareness to our cause but prove to people everywhere how much more we can accomplish when we lay our pride to the side and come together.”

The feud between the two rappers has spanned years. West just recently mentioned his back-and-forth with Drake when he appeared on the Drink Champs podcast on Nov. 4.

Earlier this year, their feud intensified with the release of West’s Donda and of Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, which quickly became Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day. The release also made Drake the most-streamed artist of 2021, with the most-streamed album of 2021, on Apple Music.

Though the Canadian rapper never calls out West by name, fans were quick to dissect several lines on multiple songs from Certified Lover Boy that appear to take digs at him, most notably on “7AM on Bridle Path.”

Although West and Drake started off as friends and collaborators — West directed the 2009 video for Drake’s breakout single “Best I Ever Had” — their relationship has gone south over the years.

They’ve argued about West’s alleged involvement in the 2018 leak that Drake has a son — Adonis, now 4 — and rumors that he had hooked up with West’s now-estranged wife Kim Kardashian West, who has denied any romance with Drake.

Reflecting on the drama in a 2019 interview with Rap Radar podcast, Drake said that the situation “just is what it is.”

“I could never ever ever ever turn my back on the things that I’ve said about him in a positive light, and I still feel all those same things,” he said. “He’s still my, obviously with the exception of Lil Wayne … and if I look at Hov as the guy who truly shaped the majority of my thinking, skill set, all those things, Kanye West would be my favorite artist all around. And that’s just facts. I have no problem saying that. Things have changed. I’m not just some kid that’s a fan anymore. Now we have personal situations, and like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can’t fix them for him.”
