Pharrell Performs Greatest Hits Medley With Snoop Dogg, Diddy & More at NBA All-Star Game

So, who better to perform for this year's top NBA talent than the reigning MVP of the music industry? While the 2014 NBA All-Star Game players took the court, Pharrell performed a 20-minute medley of his greatest hits—as a solo artist and producer—alongside some of his most famous collaborators. 

The GRAMMY-winning Producer of the Year began by going back in time with a slew of singles from more than a decade ago, opening with his '03 debut solo track "Frontin'." Soon, Nelly came out to perform the now-classic club banger "Hot in Herre," which Pharrell produced with the Neptunes in '02.

Busta Rhymes and Diddy came onstage for the trio's 2002 hit "Pass the Courvoisier, Part II" while Pharrell's Neptunes collaborator Chad Hugo popped in to perform "Rock Star," an '03 single by N.E.R.D. 

Snoop Dogg also joined in on the nostalgia kick for the duo's 2003 Top 10 hit "Beautiful." Despite tracks that were more than a decade old, it's remarkable how fresh they sound today and how hyped we got hearing them again.

The singer/producer later moved into solo versions of his mega collabos "Blurred Lines" and "Get Lucky," before popping on his now-signature mountie hat to close with his latest hit, "Happy"—which was recently covered by some of the NFL's top players.

Pharrell will perform "Happy" at the upcoming 2014 Oscars, where it's nominated for Best Original Song against new works by U2Karen O.
