Their voices are like a combination of Fergie and Jesus.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunited to perform their classic rap “Boats’ N Hoes” from their iconic film “Step Brothers” for Snoop Dogg’s 52nd birthday during the Best Night Of Your Life 2 benefit show at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday.

“My brothers surprised me,” Snoop wrote on Instagram while sharing a backstage view of the special appearance by the comedy duo.

Snoop didn’t squander the opportunity to perform the fan-favorite hit with the esteemed founders of Prestige Worldwide — the fictitious company from the 2008 Comedy — and rapped along with the comedy duo.

As the song concluded, Ferrell and Reilly took a moment to shout out the special occasion.

“Yesterday was a very special day,” Reilly told the cheering crowd.

“It was Mr. Snoop Dogg’s birthday. We’re about to sing Happy Birthday to the greatest rapper in the world!”

The legendary rapper, who had turned 52 the day before, was presented with a giant birthday cake by Reilly and Ferrell.

Making the most of the moment, Snoop pulled out a joint and lit it with the candles from his cake.

“That’s what I’m talking about,” Reilly added before he and Ferrall led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday.”

For some extra icing on the cake, all three fan-favorite celebrities even launched into the rapper’s 1994 hit, “Gin and Juice.”

Ferrell and Reilly coming together to celebrate Snoop comes after the two reportedly had a falling out over Reilly snagging the role of Jerry Buss in HBO’s sports drama series “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty” based on Jeff Pearlman’s book “Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty.”

Ferrell had been eyeing playing Buss when the series was in development and his longtime producing partner Adam McKay was developing the series.

Boardwalk Empire star Michael Shannon was originally slotted to play Buss but backed a month before shooting began, forcing the production to scramble to find their new lead, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A week before the shoot was scheduled to begin, McKay and the casting crew chose Reilly — a move that caused enough of a riff between Mckay and Ferrall to end their professional relationship.

“It was at this weird moment where Will and I weren’t exactly hugging each other, even though there was nothing that terrible, and he called Will and said, ‘Hey, McKay just came to me with this.’ And Will was very hurt that I wasn’t the one to call him, and I should have. I f–ked up,” McKay said.

Mckay directed both stars in “Step Brothers” and wrote the screenplay with Ferrell.

Despite the riff, Reilly kept it civil after he signed on to play the larger-than-life Lakers owner.

“Will is one of my best friends, Adam is one of my best friends, I was delighted to get the job and that’s all I really have to say,” Reilly said at the time.

HBO announced the series would not be renewed for a third season after the show’s second season ended in September.

The two stars have kept audiences laughing over the years in films like “Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby” (2006) and “Holmes & Watson” (2018).
