It would appear Gucci Mane is fully embracing the 2017 Coachella experience. A week after sharing the stage with Diddy, Migos, Rae Sremmurd, and Lil Yachty at the popular music festival, Gucci Mane returned for week two of Coachella and welcomed 50 Cent, ASAP Rocky, Playboi Carti, and Chief Keef.

The star-studded set had LaFlare treating the crowd to the Young Chop’s signature drop and singing along to “I Don’t Like” before bringing out Chief Keef from backstage.

Those in attendance were also treated to a live rendition of “Telephone Calls” from 2016’s Cozy Tapes Vol. 1, as ASAP Rocky and Playboi Carti joined in. During various parts of his set, Gucci Mane clearly didn’t mind playing the background, as he ceded headlining duties to a few of his collaborators.

A clearly surprised crowd responded to Gucci’s request to “Bring my motherfuckin’ partner out here, man” with cheers upon learning the partner being referenced was none other than 50 Cent. Fif and Gucci then traded bars on the hook to 50’s 2003 track “What Up Gangsta.”
For those keeping count, that would be two star-studded weekends of cameo appearances sandwiched between the release of Gucci Mane’s Murda Beatz, TM88, and Illmind-produced track “Coachella.” All evidence supports Indio, California’s arid atmosphere suiting the self-proclaimed “East Atlanta Santa” well.
