After a post to his web site revealed the headline-grabbing news that he would join Eminem and Kendrick Lamar alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg on stage at this year's Coachella, Warren G has retracted the announcement. The veteran rapper removed the post and is insisting that he cannot confirm or deny anyone's attendance at the show.

"Warren G is not announcing that he and Eminem will perform with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg," a rep for Warren said in a statement. "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."

The original post on Tuesday stirred up the blogosphere and Twitter with the promise of an Aftermath reunion of epic proportions.

"Dr. Dre will perform at the 2012 edition of Coachella, the annual Indie festival in the desert. The good doctor will perform with all times friends Snoop Dogg, Daz Dillinger, Warren G & Eminem," the announcement read. "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!!"

Coachella takes place over the next two weekends in Indio, California.
