Pharrell Performs with Nelly, Diddy, Busta Rhymes, & Snoop Dogg at NBA All-Star Game

Snoop Dogg, Diddy, Pharrell, Nelly, and Busta Rhymes

Before the NBA’s greatest players hit the court, Pharrell tipped off Sunday’s All-Star Game with a 20-minute medley of his greatest hits featuring some special guests. The Grammy-winning producer provided the soundtrack to the player introductions beginning with his 2003 single “Frontin’.”

Nelly emerged to perform his Neptunes-produced hit “Hot in Herre” before Skateboard P continued with “I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me).”

Diddy and Busta Rhymes helped turn up New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center with “Pass the Courvoisier, Part II.” But instead of the usual lyrics, they switched things up for 2014, chanting “Pass the Ciroc this way.”

Pharrell (sans Robin Thicke) made his way through the crowd for “Blurred Lines,” and his fellow N.E.R.D. bandmate Chad Hugo joined him on keyboard for “Rock Star.”

“Let’s take it back to the essence, Chad,” said P.

Snoop Dogg hit the stage with “Beautiful,” and the Western Conference players entered to “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”

For the closing number, Pharrell donned his famous hat in red while performing “Get Lucky” and his top 10 hit “Happy” as Diddy, Busta, Nelly, and Snoop danced onstage.

“No words for how grateful I am these legends joined me 2nite,” tweeted Pharrell.

Watch Pharrell and friends kick things off with their hit parade.

Snoop Dogg and Family Visit the White House

Snoop Dogg and family

The Dogg is in the House. Following the Grammy nomination for his reggae album Reincarnated, Snoop and his family were invited to the White House for the 36th Annual Kennedy Center Honors earlier this month.

A tuxedo-clad Snoop, along with his wife Shante Broadus and daughter Cori B., met President Obama off-camera and shared a laugh and a fist bump with Secretary of State John Kerry.

“They done let me up in here, dawg, and I got my wife and my daughter,” said Snoop in the iPhone-filmed footage. “We at the White House doing it big. Now what?”

It was a full circle moment for Snoop. In his Reincarnated film, he says, “I’m never able to perform in situations where I’d love to because I don’t have those kinds of songs. My songs are too hard. I know Obama wants me to come to the White House, but what can I perform?”

Not only did he visit the White House, he also performed a live tribute to Herbie Hancock during the Kennedy Center Honors, which will air tonight on CBS.
