Kanye West revealed that he hired Bill Cosby’s attorney to help with Larry Hoover’s case during his appearance on “Drink Champs.”

Kanye West is on a mission to free Larry Hoover and it appears that he’s received support from Bill Cosby.

During his recent appearance on Drink Champs, Kanye West detailed his efforts to help free Larry Hoover under the First Step Act but more shockingly, he revealed that he hired the attorney that got Bill Cosby out of prison to help. “We’re putting together a new team for [Hoover],” the rapper told the Drink Champs co-hosts. “It’s much like in the footsteps of my father-in-law, Robert Kardashian. We got the lawyer that just got Cosby out.”

According to Radar Online, Andrew Wyatt, a rep for Bill Cosby, has chimed in on the matter, offering his moral support to Kanye West and Larry Hoover. Cosby admitted to having “no knowledge of Mr. Hoover” but added that the justice system “has shown its hatred towards Black Men, who are incarcerated.”

“[Hoover] has paid his debt to society and his story must be told in the same manner that I always reminded people of the good that Mr. Cosby brought to the world,” Wyatt said. He also added that he would “love to sit down with Kanye.”

“I stand with Ye and Mr. Hoover,” Wyatt said. “I also, would like to say, thank you to Ye on behalf of Mr. Cosby and the Cosby family for his support of Mr. Cosby. Thank you very much.”
