Tupac performs at Coachella… in hologram form
By now you’ve probably heard that Tupac – the legendary if troubled hip-hop artist who was shot in 1996 – performed at this years Coachella festival by way of a hologram. So that happened. I don’t particularly want to “debate a dead person” here but Martin Luther King Jr, John Lennon, Ghandi, Mozart… so many other luminaries to choose from… and so far the only two people to get hologrammed performances are Will.i.am and Tupac? Really? Let me know when Hologram Rodney Dangerfield is playing at the Improv and then we’ll talk.
Anyway. This happened at Eminem’s set on Sunday night:
The actual visuals are staggering and it’s an impressive feat, according to some sources costing in the range of $10,000,000 for 2Pac’s set. It captures the rapper in some sort of demigod forever-young moment when he was ripped like Jesus and bereft of tattoos.
