Tupac Performs at Coachella

Tupac Performs at Coachella

Hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur didn’t let his 1996 death get in the way of his “live” Sunday night performance at the Coachella festival in Indio, California. The hardest-working posthumous performer in show business was resurrected as a hologram as part of the closing set, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The deceased lyrist invigorated the audience and was just one of several rap all-stars who took the stage. 

Hologram Shakur and former label-mate Snoop Dogg collaborated on “Come with Me,” “Hail Mary” and “Gangsta Party.” The reunion and the strikingly life-like hologram surprised unsuspecting attendees. 

When the late rapper took the stage, he met concert goers with a “What the [expletive] is up, Coachella?” greeting. YouTube broadcasted the bare-chested and buff performance live online.

And Shakur wasn’t the only late rapper remembered: Snoop also paid homage to Nate Dogg, AKA Nathaniel Hale. Kurupt and Warren G joined the Long Beach, Calif. native in a performance of “Ain’t No Fun,” according to MTV. Images of Hale, who died in March, 2011, were displayed in the background during the set.
