So a bunch of sites including Rolling Stone are reporting that Eminem is set to join Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg at Coachella this weekend.
This is all based off a post on Warren G’s official website that read, “Dr. Dre will perform at the 2012 edition of the annual Indie festival 'Coachella' in the desert. The good doctor will perform with all time friends Snoop Dogg, Daz Dillinger, Warren G & Eminem. Kendrick Lamar will also be here to perform their new single 'The Recipe.' Y'all ready to feel the wrath of the Aftermath ? Let's gooo!!"
The post has since been removed from the site and Warren G’s publicist released a statement to Billboard.com denying that The Regulator knows anything about the supposed guest appearances.
Here’s the statement:
"Warren G is not announcing that he and Eminem will perform with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. Warren had no knowledge that any such announcement was being made until after it was posted. Any postings involving him and other artists were made without his knowledge or consent and he is not willing to confirm or deny anyone's involvement in this year’s Coachella event. We apologize for any confusion that this caused."
Looks like Warren spoiled the surprise.
Either way, hip-hop fans are in for one hell of a show to close the weekend on Sunday night. We’re hoping since Em will be joining Snoop and Dre, there will be some performances from 2001.
Of course, since I'm not even going, I’ll have to wait ‘til the footage drops next Monday. Can’t wait.
