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.
Celebrity jeweler to the stars 'Joshua Of Beverly Hills' has teamed up with Las Vegas sneaker spot CRSVR to encrust a Nike Dunk Questlove in $20,000 worth of gold and diamonds! The fellas dipped the Dunk in 'over a thousand pave set stones onto gold, including 3.5 carats of full cut round brilliant white diamonds and 4.2 carats of full cut round black diamonds.' So if you're looking for a little extra shine in your foot game hit up either Jason of Beverly Hills or CRSVR, who both have boutiques within the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.
Questlove was deejaying at Mezzanine in San Francisco on 4/22/11 and at the end of the night, Ghostface Killah decided to jump on stage and give an impromptu performance of “Cherchez LaGhost” from his album, Supreme Clientele. Comedian Dave Chappelle and Swift.fm Founder, Edward Aten were also in attendance. – HipHopIsCoolAgain
