Meek Mill brought out plenty of friends during his Expensive Pain show at Madison Square Garden Saturday. 

The event, which had Meek billed alongside Lil Uzi Vert, Vory, and Giggs, in celebration of Meek’s latest LP, Expensive Pain, certainly delivered on its promise to feature “several star-studded special guests.” While he played back the album itself as intended, Meek was also able to bring out Bobby Shmurda, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, 42 Dugg, EST Gee, Fivio Foreign, and more to join in on his toast to his latest LP.

Despite reports of Meek arriving late—after saying he’d start at 8:45 p.m. with a curfew at 11 p.m.—fans seemed to be in good spirits in clips from the event, as Meek kept pulling out cameo after cameo on stage.

Uzi pulled up and shared some of his own hits like “Money Longer,” while Durk and Baby came on stage for a performance of “Sharing Locations”—their hit track with Meek off his record, which charted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 earlier this month.

Chloe Flower was also a guest for the night, who performed “Expensive Pain” and “Respect the Game” alongside Meek and received a piano wrapped in the rapper’s album artwork. “Thank you @meekmill @rocnation for having me and creating this amazing piano!” she wrote on Instagram.

And even with Bobby hopping on stage in front of his home crowd to his verse on Rowdy Rebel’s “Computers,” Meek still kept things on lock with his solo tracks, including during his run-throughs of “Love Train” and “Dreams and Nightmares.” Check out some more clips from the high-energy night below.
