Pharrell Williams (and his hat!) rocked the 2014 NBA All-Star Game with a medley of hits on Sunday (Feb. 16) in New Orleans. The multi-talented producer wasn’t alone as he brought along Nelly, Diddy, Busta Rhymes and Snoop Dogg to jam with him.
Skateboard P kicked off his performance with his own single, ‘Frontin’,’ before he was interrupted by Nelly who performed his chart-topping 2002 hit ‘Hot in Herre.’
Then veteran rappers Diddy and Busta Rhymes joined the party performing a rendition of ‘Pass the Rock This Way,’ which is a basketball-themed remix of their 2002 hit single, ‘Pass the Courvoisier, Part II.’ Please take note of Diddy and Bussa-Buss’ old-school dance moves as it brought plenty of slander their way via Twitter.
After the Eastern Conference All-Stars introductions, Williams returned to perform two of the most-played songs in 2013 — ‘Blurred Lines’ and ‘Get Lucky.’ That was followed by an appearance from Snoop Dogg for a quick verse of their summertime anthem ‘Beautiful.’ Pharrell also reunited with Chad Hugo, the other half of N.E.R.D., to perform ‘Rockstar.’
Williams finished his set with a performance of his Oscar-nominated single, ‘Happy,’ which also featured an appearance of his infamous hat — this time in an all-red color. Skateboard P and the gang all came together onstage to sing and dance to the cheery single from the ‘Despicable Me 2′ soundtrack.
Fans who watched the performance were happy with what they saw. See what we did there? Check out the tweets below:
Snoop Lion should've pulled out the pimp cup for this performance.

The fact that Snoop can still remember his old raps is proof that weed doesn't completely eff up your memory.
