Mere hours after a post on Warren G’s website trumpeted the fact that the Regulator, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Wiz Khalifa would be joining Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre onstage during their headlining Coachella sets this weekend and/or next, the note has been removed and his PR rep has issued the following 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 years Coachella event. We apologize for any confusion that this caused.”
Warren himself has since tweeted, “please stop with the false announcements please!” Em, Wiz, and Kendrick haven’t said a word about the incident, however, so considering the above statement includes the words “not willing to confirm or deny anyone’s involvement,” fest-goers will just have to wait and see whether that initial announcement (perhaps a simple spill-the-beans scenario?) has any merit on the main stage this weekend.
