Hologram Tupac takes to stage with Snoop Dogg at Coachella; reports of mass weed-induced hallucination proven false

Much noise was made about Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre’s impressively star-studded roll call of guests ahead of their Sunday headline slot at California’s Coachella festival, though no one expected a cameo spot from Tupac Shakur. Yet thanks to fancy technology, the deceased rapper made an appearance onstage in the form of a hologram, appearing on a bill also featuring the rather more real stars Eminem, 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifah, Warren G and Kendrick Lemar. Take a look at the more-than-a-little-eerie projection performing ‘Hail Mary’ and duetting on ‘2 Of Americaz Most Wanted’ with Snoop below.

In a later development, it looks like the reincarnated rapper has made a successful debut on social media. @HologramTupac had 4554 followers at time of going to press, and had already announced some upcoming dates with Snoop Dogg to the Twittersphere.
