Two of the biggest clubs in Atlanta, Mansion Elan and Luxe Ultra Lounge graciously pulled out their red carpets for RL and his entire entourage and treated him like the Royal Prince he is.
In attendance to Host his two-day party extravaganza were his loyal band members Tweet and T-Low who to say the least know how to bring the party out and get the crowd hyped with their hysterical personalities and wild dance moves.
