Gucci Mane celebrated the release of his new album Everybody Looking with a special homecoming concert in Atlanta on Friday night (Jul. 22). Presented by Revolt TV, the live-streamed event was held at the Fox Theatre in Gucci’s hometown, and the charismatic was all smiles as a few big-named friends joined him on stage throughout the night.

OJ Da Juiceman, PeeWee Longway, Young Dolph, Rich Homie Quan, Fetty Wap, and 2 Chainz all joined La Flare to perform some of their street anthems and chart hits. The loudest cheers from the evening came during the show’s finale, as Future joined Gucci to perform the songs “Stick Talk” and “March Madness” before Drake appeared to join his “Summer Sixteen” tourmate for “Jumpman.” Drake took control from that point on with “Energy,” as Gucci and the Toronto superstar delivered their past and new collabs “Back on Road” and “Believe It Or Not” for the first-time live.

Out now, Everybody Looking features appearances from Kanye West, Drake, and Young Thug. Get the album here and watch Gucci’s full homecoming concert below.
