Would You Go See the Tupac Hologram on Tour?

by at . Comments

According to reports, Tupac's hologram performance at Coachella has Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre thinking of taking the late rapper's CGI likeness with them on tour.

Tupac died back in 1996 (well, according to some people), but he was introduced to a whole new generation of fans thanks to the wizards at Digital Domain.

The Hollywood firm created a CGI version of the rapper performing on "Hail Mary" and "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" at the Coachella Festival this weekend:

Using angled reflectors to create the illusion that he was actually alive and on stage, video of the stunt hit the Internet and became a viral sensation Monday.

It also looked like Tupac's been busy at the gym in the afterlife.

Anyway, old 2Pac friends and collaborators Dre and Snoop told the Wall Street Journal that the two are considering mounting an arena tour - with digi-Pac.

"This is just the beginning," Digital Domain's chief creative officer, Ed Ulbrich, told the paper. "Dre has a massive vision for this." That got us thinking ...

Talk to THG: If the Tupac Shakur hologram performed at a venue in your hometown, would you pay to go see that crazy mofo?

And more importantly, is Tupac even dead?

He wrote songs everyday and recorded a ton of work that has never been released. I think he knew he was not long for this world and yet he wanted to leave more for us to learn and enjoy long after he was gone. I know many see it as strictly financially motivated, but I do not. 
While much of his writings deal with the working of the inner city and the downtrodden, they are about life and love and persevering through any of the challenges. They are still good lessons for the masses and the generations to come. 
But that is of course, just my opinion. :) 
I love his poets soul. Â
