Anderson .Paak already wowed crowds during Coachella’s first weekend, thanks in part to a surprise appearance from T.I., but he took things up a notch for his closing set at the Cali festival last night. After running through cuts off Malibu and Venice, the Oxnard, CA native brought out Dr. Dre — the man who made all of this possible for .Paak — to perform “The Next Episode,” “California Love” and “Still D.R.E.” (while rocking a Prince tee, no less).

Ain’t no party like a West Coast party.
