With psychedelic backgrounds, stage lights and simulated gun sounds, rapper Gucci Mane electrified the throngs at This Tent early Sunday morning.

The artist, known for helping popularize the hip-hop subgenre of trap music during the early 2000s in his native Atlanta, performed songs such as “I Might Be,” “St. Brick Intro” and the brand-new single released just a few days ago, “Backwards,” featuring Meek Mill.

Wearing a red jumpsuit, large chain and sunglasses, Gucci Mane hit the stage ready to fire up his fans, many of whom sang along to the songs and danced into the early morning hours. 

For his exit, the rapper kissed his index and middle finger, threw them up to the sky and exclaimed, “It’s Gucci!”
