Well, that was pretty fucking awesome. Despite supposedly having been dead for over 15 years, Tupac Shakur joined Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg on the main stage at Coachella late Sunday night.
An all-too-realistic hologram of the late rapper rolled through "2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted" and other hits in the California desert. Even more unnervingly, he started his mini-set by shouting out "Coachella" by name.
Snoop and Dre were also joined by Eminem, who performed "I Need a Doctor" and "Forgot About Dre" with his mentor. He also ripped through "Till I Collapse." 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa and newcomer Kendrick Lamar also made appearances, as the night proved to be a celebration of rap's heavy hitters, old-school classics and almost-old school hits ("In Da Club," anyone?).
Undoubtedly, however, it was Tupac's hologram who stole the show. Twitter was set ablaze by the performance, with musicians like Rihanna and Questlove expressing their amazement with the technology.
