"What's up, party people," Malone said at the top of the livestreamed show. "We're gonna play some Nirvana for you, and have some fun, and hopefully I don't f**k up... Thank you to the gentlemen who wrote these beautiful songs."
The 80-minute set featured several tracks from Nirvana's classic album "Nevermind", including "Lithium", "Drain You", and "Come as You Are" as well as "Very Ape", "Heart-Shaped Box", and "About a Girl".
Cobain's widow Courtney Love gave the rap star her blessing to perform her late husband's songs before the event went live and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic live-tweeted during the livestream.
"I don't think these fellows can play any better. They are on fire...!," he tweeted. "I am holding emotions back the whole show."
