The State Farm Arena will be a little colder once the ‘So Icy’ entertainer, Gucci Mane, performs on March 26.

The Atlanta Hawks announced on Monday that the rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, will be taking over the court with a halftime performance.


“I’m excited to be performing again for the Hawks halftime show after seven years,” said Gucci Mane. “I can’t wait to perform in front of all the fans and watch the Hawks walk away with a W,” Gucci Mane said.

The rapper has not performed at a Hawks game since the fall of 2016. During the ‘Kiss Cam’ at that game, Gucci Mane proposed to his now-wife, Keyshia Ka’Oir.

The couple recently announced the arrival of their baby girl, Iceland Davis, in early February. They welcomed their son, Ice Davis, in December 2020.
