“Dre and Snoop” were trending in the wee hours of Monday morning as Twitter users tuned in to the Coachella music festival’s YouTube channel for the original gangsta rappers’ live performance. Hard to believe the hard-partying, thug life-glorifying, weed-smoking duo has been performing together for 20 years.
OMG! Dr. Dre and Snoop! It's like being in HS again. I love it!

Heh. At least one Twitter user noticed that their lyrics betrayed their age:
And…a teleprompter for help:
Anyone else noticing the heartbreaking TelePrompter for Snoop and Dre? I guess they're stoned as shit, probably helpful. #CoachellaLive

After the show, Snoop was clear-thinking enough to tweet:
— Snoop Dogg (@SnoopDogg) April 16, 2012
Reaction was overwhelmingly, profanely, stupefyingly positive:
@SnoopDogg is an inspiration for stoners everywhere,he should have a weed named after him,maybe a blend of white widow and northern lights

Wiz Khalifa made a surprise appearance for the drug-promoting collab “Young, Wild and Free” with Snoop Dogg:
Other cameo appearance: Kurupt, Warren G, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, Tony Yayo…
Snoop, Dre, Wiz, AND 50 cent. Who will they come out with next?!

A hologram of the late Tupac makes an appearance. For realz:

Well, Dre and Snoop just brought out a very legitimate Holographic Tupac that has pushed this performance over the top as best of all time.
— Michael Palazzolo (@itsmrzolo) April 16, 2012
Wow, snoop and dre just brought back Tupac from the dead.
— Zachary Lemmo (@ZgreenZ) April 16, 2012
Does @Coachella pay for the shrink that Snoop and Dre need after performing with their dead friend?

That was amazing. Snoop and Dre should do this every 20 years. Then they'll all be holograms.

Some Twitter say that was no hologram:
