Really late Sunday night, or Monday morning for any East Coasters who stayed up to watch on YouTube, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg were into their set at Coachella when the bells to Tupac Shakur’s Hail Mary started to ring. It was rumored that a hologram of Pac would be part of Dre and Snoop’s set and those rumors were right.
The virtual version of Tupac wore baggy jeans and boots, much like the 1996 version of Pac would, was shirtless, and would’ve probably been mad that Dr. Dre was now in better shape than he was. Dr. Dre was looking jacked to the gills.
The hologram was insanely life-like and did a second song with the real Snoop (you could tell it was the real Snoop because the braids are a bit high on the head now), their 1996 hit 2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted. Soon thereafter, Virtual Pac vanished and Slim Shady appeared.
While Eminem didn’t appear with Virtual Pac, he did a small set, including I Need A Doctor, Forgot About Dre, and his own ‘Till I Collapse. Earlier, Dre and Snoop were joined by Wiz Khalifa, 50 Cent, Warren G, and Kendrick Lamar.
I’m not sure if this video will stay up for long, but here’s a fan video of the holographic Pac.
Edit: Here is the video of the entire performance that has been going around the web:
