Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Eminem, Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar delivered a huge “old school meets new school” set at the Coachella Music Festival last night, with one extra special guest — the late Tupac Shakur via hologram. I’m sure at least a few of us conspiracy theorists will insist that Tupac is still alive and at this very moment chillin’ in Cuba with a drink, watching this footage and deciding that the hologram looks nothing like him. But there’s no way around the fact that the man officially passed away over fifteen years ago, and it’s a little bit eerie to see and hear him alongside the living in 2012. Take a look, but be forewarned that the clip features language that is not safe for work.
Do you think Tupac’s Coachella resurrection is cool or creepy? Which long-departed artists would you like to see make a comeback in hologram form?
