Kanye begs Kim to ‘run back’ to him at concert with Drake

Kanye West has begged estranged wife Kim Kardashian to “run back” to him.

The rapper, 44, made the lovesick request at the “Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert” in Los Angeles on Thursday night, which was live-streamed on Amazon platforms.

“I need you to run right back to me, more specifically Kimberly,” the artist now known as “Ye” ad libbed during a performance of his song “Runaway.”

Kardashian, 41, — who is currently dating comedian Pete Davidson, 28 — has not yet addressed her ex’s public plea.

However, the supportive former spouse was in attendance at the gig. She was seen posing up with Kanye alongside their daughter, North, 8.

The concert was West’s first in five years, and also featured performances from his former rival, Drake, 35.

The rap icons have been locked in a bitter war of words in recent years, but proved there’s no longer any bad blood as they put on a cozy on-stage display.

West took to the stage first, performing several of his most famous tracks, before going on to cover Drake’s hit “Find Your Love.”

The Canadian crooner appeared impressed by Ye’s rendition, seen enthusiastically dancing along in the crowd.

Afterward, Drake took to the stage to belt out some of his own hits, before he returned the favor and covered Kanye’s song “24.”

The pair ended the concert with a joint performance of the song “Forever,” before they “waltzed off stage together,” according to Pitchfork.

Drake and Kanye have been embroiled in a years-long feud, which frequently made headlines.

At the beginning of his career, Drake claimed Kanye was his idol, before he declared in 2011 that he wanted to become more famous than the “Gold Digger” singer.

In subsequent years, the Canadian crooner took potshots at West in his songs, with lyrics claiming he had surpassed Kanye on the fame scale.

The feud escalated, with West doxxing Drake and tweeting: “There would never be a drake without a Kanye west so never come out your mouth with a threat.”

However, the feud appeared to be thawing last month, with the duo seen acting amicably at a Dave Chappelle show.

The former rivals then decided to join forces for Thursday’s “Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert” — which seeks to raise awareness of the plight of convicted gang member, Larry Hoover.

Hoover, 73, was a leader of the Chicago gang, Gangster Disciple, where he ordered the killing of a 19-year-old neighborhood drug dealer in the early 1970s.

In 1997, he was given six life sentences after being found guilty of federal drug conspiracy, extortion and continuing to engage in a criminal enterprise, the BBC reports.

Convicted gang member Larry Hoover is currently locked up in a maximum security prison in Colorado. West and Drake are calling for his release.

However, Hoover — who is imprisoned at the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colorado — has purportedly now denounced violence and has been on a path to rehabilitation.
