Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg Perform With Tupac Hologram At Coachella 2012

Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg resurrected Tupac during their performance at Coachella.

During their headlining slot at Coachella 2012 festival this year, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg performed alongside Tupac Shakur as a hologram.

The West Coast veterans resurrected the slain emcee to run through "Hail Mary" and "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted." It was originally rumored that Nate Dogg would appear as a hologram, but instead, Kurupt and Warren G came out for a tribute to the fallen singer during "Ain't No Fun."

Additionally, Wiz Khalifa made a cameo for "In the Air Tonight/Young, Wild & Free"; 50 Cent and Tony Yayo popped up for "What Up Gangsta," "P.I.M.P. (Remix) and "In Da Club"; Kendrick Lamar dropped by for "The Recipe" ; and Eminem made a surprise appearance for "I Need a Doctor," "Forgot About Dre" and "Till I Collapse."

  • Drefan since 91 but it'sover

    Dre washed up. Still performing the same old hits from the 90's and not havin the inspiration to produce some classic new shit. Never thought this would happen but he fell of hard.

    I hope I could make it to the festival this year. but for those of you interested in Coachella, here is a link to an unofficial guide book that they're selling on Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/151795. Thanks, Phani

  • Ricky Rozay

    most of these rappers aint real niggas. Word, Nas bankrupt never was a drug runner, Lil Wayne aint no blood, Jeezy aint no BMF, 50 a snitch, Game a stripper, Dre was gay. None of these niggas real you guys. If they was all real they all be dead now. Like it or not Ross is the new biggie. BAWSE!!!!!

      Pac has solidified himself as the greatest ever because a hologram of him performed a couple songs? your reasoning is strange.

  • TylertheDestroyer

    " The only way for me to come back is by Makaveli..." 2 pac never had preformed to a crowd so big ..The man would be smiling down for sure.. rest in peace big homie.

  • Chris

    That hologram shit was corny, wack, and retarded PERIOD!!!

  • Makaveli The Don Lives On

    hmm so i watched this concert, must say the idea of using a hologram is pretty interesting and Pac looked realistic, but at the same time it is disturbing and in a way disrespecting toward Tupac. He got shot, let him rest in peace, no need to bring his hologram up, cuz he still among us, in the music, hearts of millions... but honestly when i saw his hologram on stage, even though i knew it was fake, but looked very realistic, something clicked inside... Rest In Peace G!

    • Anonymous

      this is in no way disrespectful. I'm willing to bet less than 1% of the people there ever got to see Pac perform. This is an amazing thing to witness live. And Pac would think this shit is bananas. I know I would be if someone spent all that time creating a hologram of me.

  • Anonymous

    The truth is, after Pac dissed De La Soul over absolutely nothing, he showed he was just tripping. I mean, all that shit we saw during the beef? That wasn't 2Pac, that was Pac playing Bishop. Pac was just playing a role in there. He really had no business dissing those people. That's why I'm cool with Dre using Pac, because Pac didn't diss Dre, Bishop did.

  • whatup

    As all should know...50 was there...that's why game wasn't. They got beef still.

    • @whatup

      Shit, what you thought? Game's ego is bigger than himself. Nigga know damn well he ain't shit without 50, but he still act like he's running shit. The only time Game really shined, the Aftermath and G-Unit chains were around his neck.

  • Coachella was fire though

    Shit, c'mon Snoop, you knew Pac, you were his homie, let him rest in peace. Don't be putting his hologram onstage with niggas he didn't like.

  • Dre Day Only Meant Eazy's Payday

    How would you feel if somebody used your image without your permission? I mean, c'mon Dre, you know that nigga didn't like you. Even if he did not share the stage with Pac (the hologram), he still played a Pac song he was featured in. If Pac was alive, he would have ran all these niggas out of the stage.

  • anonymous

    listen here you little bitches, this was just a tribute to pac, whats the fn difference between watching him in a musicvid or in a hologram, real eyes realise real lies suckaz " The only way for me to come back is by Makaveli..." -2pac And like my man saigon said: "They brought Tupac back to sing Gangster Party? Why not 'Keep Ya Head Up'? or one his other MANY great songs. We need that more right now!" - Saigon With snoop & dre touring with Makaveli da don, they can make this world a better place.. Especially if they let my man k.dot the good kid from compton shine in front of millions of 2 pac fans.. Thats some poetic shit.

    • Anonymous

      LOL and you need a fake image and a hologram to do that? I thought Pac said he wanted to be remember through his music. He came back as a ghost as he said he would through his music genius if you ask me the hologram is fake and is not needed to pay tribute to Pac his music is more then enough. Now with Dre and Snoop saying there taking it on tour it's clear this is another business venture. But that being said respects to Dr. Dre I didn't watch Coachella from what I heard he did his verse from Cali Love and bounced. I respect that because even 16 years later after his death and there beef Dre still didn't act or pretend like Pac would share the stage with him what they do in the future what this shit is yet to be seen.

    Dope concert. But why niggas have 2bring Game in this shit. Why must he give a fuck when Pac's beloved Outlaws were not even there, who was feat on da original Hail Mary track, until dose niggas get that respect dey deserve I DONT BELIVE U, U NEED MORE PEOPLE? GTFOH,YAYO was there gosh how real is that. Am not mad about da hologram, always been a Pac fan,this is a great tribute. But that being said, lets not defend motherf who ducked and dived when he was still alive, these rappers who dey are. And I truely understand why some Pac fans in this page here are mad though,cos real Pac fans knew how that nigga felt,and da pain he went thru. His words in his last few days. Fuck blaming Suge for everything!!!!!!! Pac had his own mind and opinions and most were real from da heart. Fuck pay tribute,bring him to life,do whatever but dont avoid da truth........

    • Anonymous

      Real shit BLACK JESUS and while I disagree with the Hologram I don't think it's a big deal I think what's been done to his music especially with albums like Pacs Life and Loyal To The Game should matter more and i'm sure it's what Pac would have cared about as well.

    It was a dope concept and a brilliant performance. I think they pulled it off well and the reaction was overwhelming considering that Coachella isn't even a hip hop festival. I had goosebumps watching it, and I wish I was there even though the shit was creepy watching it online because it seemed so fuckin real. RIP 2pac and Biggie.

  • Dre Day Only Meant Eazy's Payday

    They really have no respect for the dead.

  • T-Streets

    Everyboy needs to quit hating & complaining!..I can bet any amount of anything that the ones who saying it was "disrespectful" are the same ones who said they wish 2Pac was here, now u got him so STOP YOUR WHINNING!! 1st thing 1st, if u look at the video Dr. Dre DID NOT share the stage with Pac...all he did was ply his music that he was featured on with him like he's been doing & no one had a problem with. 2nd thing...Dre & Pac were beefing, but if u're a REAL Pac fan like myself...u would know that that's only because Dre decided to leave Death Row PLUS Suge Knight hyped 2Pac up to that & Pac went along with it because he was loyal AND he owed Suge because he bailed Pac outta jail (even Snoop had a small beef with Dre for that same reason). Also let's point out that Eazy-E & Dre HAD beef then what did they do? They squashed it before Eazy died..it was they media who like to keep the beef going, just like yall doing now. If some of yall claiming to be "real niggas" then be grown azz men & move past the beef that happened ages ago! Another thing..Snoop & Pac really never had beef so I don't know where that came from. They were always on stage together doing the exact same song they did in the video at Coachella. Snoop & Pac always rode together til the day Pac died! So to the so called "I've been a 2Pac" fans, what's the real reason u're mad? I personally luv'd the show...it gave me chills that he came back to perform once again for the realness of Hip Hop. Besides, 2Pac did say he was gonna be reincarnated someday & there he is...So to all us true Pac fans, let's keep on apprecaiting what he brought to this world in his music!I'm glad I witnessed this online, it brought back memories of childhood listening to his music

      SNOOP GOT SHOT AT IN NY BECAUSE OF BIGGIE. Biggie went on the radio and said 2Pac and Dogg Pound are in NY recording a NY diss and BIG didn't know it was Snoop not Pac because he was cool with Snoop. The track wasn't originally a diss but after they got shot at it became a diss. Pac and Snoop did have tensions in there final days I wouldn't say it was beef because BIG and Pac had beef Snoop and Pac just had a lot of tension listen to Sixx Minutes off Doggfather second verse touches on it and what Pac said to Snoop.

    • T-Streets

      Duh! I seen the video..so what is your point besides it's a hologram?? It was a life-like Pac period...so again what point are u trying to make to defeat the purpose of?

    • yep

      "now you got him" wtf u talking about, it's a hologram

    • T-Streets

      Ok Pac was mad about that...SO WHAT!! That whole "beef" was between Pac & Biggie, not Snoop, Pac & Biggie. What happened after that?? Pac & Snoop STILL kicked, at a Tyson boxing match & was about to party until he died. So again, what's ur point?

    • Renzo rollin

      Pac was mad cuz Snoop said on a radio interview that he was cool with Biggie and Diddy. This happened a few days before he died.

  • Renzo rollin

    Would be cool if the hologram started kicking Snoops ass and started calling Dre gay. We all know Pac was not cool with Snoop anymore and wanted to make a song dissin Snoop.

  • jack johsno

    imo this is disrespectful to 2pac, If you had died, would you want people making a fake image of you and editing your words to make you say things you never said? and would you want this to be done by the very people you happened to be beefing with before you died? and would you want these people making money off it? Coz this is exactly whats happened to 2pac here

    • Anonymous

      oh, it is going on tour with them.

    • Ludicrous

      I understand what you're saying. And I'm not saying you're wrong. But I think they just wanted the fans to experience 2Pac one last time because it's not like the hologram will just go on tour with them or that it'll happen with everyone else who died. That's at least what I got from it.

    Over 100,000 people in attendance last night for Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. This was an iconic performance by some of rap's greatest and all you can do is hate. Last night was exactly what Hip Hop needed. An All-Star lineup sharing the stage in honor of Hip Hop music. That set last night will be revered and go down as one of rap's greatest moments. The Tupac hologram obviously was the most exciting thing about the set. Dre never shared the stage with Pac (in honor of their broken friendship)and got permission from his mother (who, by the way, loved it). YOUR opinion doesn't matter; sorry fellas. I loved watching that concert on Youtube last night. It is something I will never forget as a rap fan, and I'm sure it's something the 100,000 people in attendance will never forget. One thing, however. AFTERMATH IS BACK! And last night was the perfect opportunity to showcase it. P.S. You see the crowd's reaction when Eminem came out? I swear I've never heard an applause that loud.

    Dont understand how Pac fans are mad. His mom approved so if she doesn't feel it's disrespectful let it ride. And if you feel that way about a hologram then I hope you don't listen to makaveli, r u still down, still I rise, until the end of time and the rest. Why still be mad at the dre situation. It's old. They grown, if Pac was alive he'd be grown too and settle whatever petty difference they had like grown men do. And dre knows its a lotta ignorance out there so he at least didn't share the stage with him. This was monumental and as a fan of tupac it gave me chills. And I don't care if they profit from it or not they should you act like his family is exempt from bills. I hope they do a tour so tupac fans can seed him live if they didn't get the chance or re live it if they did.

  • SuperGucciRap

    Why the hell would anyone see a dead perform let alone a shitty rapper like 2pac? At least bring Biggie and Eazy-E back real rappers who were OGs. Not Ice Cube doing kids movies, 2Pac the ballerina racist Makaveli worshipper, Dr. Dre the homo, Snoop Dogg with his lame reality show doing songs with Bruno Mars & Katy Perry, Eminem the emo white boy, 50 cent the snitch, or Kendrick Lamar the Kermit the Frog rapper. Listen to Gucci Mane! A real setlist would be Bricksquad, Odd Future, Funk Volume, AOTP, and Justin Bieber doing an awesome Cypher Show. It's Gucci Time!

    According to TMZ, Tupacs mother, Afeni Shakur, was positively thrilled about his virtual appearance during the show. She was not in attendance, but instead watched it on the Internet. For Afeni, the moment was thrilling, yet bittersweet. Prior to the show, Dr. Dre asked Afeni for her approval and she said yes. In exchange for allowing his likeness to be used, Dre made a donation to The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation. ^ the person who's opinion really matters has spoken. Case closed.

    Wack should have just played Pac's music. Stop disrespecting his legacy with these wack ass holograms. You don't need a hologram to pay respects especially to a legend like Pac all you need is his music.

  • jason

    all this "let a man rest in peace" statements are retarded. this was awesome and very cool to see him on stage again. i'm sure he is still resting in peace kiddos.

      That's what YOU want anonymous, but guess what? YOU don't get to determine what Pac would have liked or not.

      LOLLLL pay respects. Read my comment above you don't need corny ass holograms to pay respects you need MUSIC. Should have played 2 Of Amerikkas Most Wanted, Cali Love, All About U, Hail Mary, Ambitonz Az A Ridah and that would ahve been more then enough and a lot better then some wack ass holograms. Pac is dead respect his legacy and play his music he left his music behind so it can live on forever. I'm sure if he wanted to be remembered he would want to be remembered through music and not some corny ass hologram.

    This was absolutely phenomenal and shows the brilliance technology can bring to art. It is through art that we can carry on the legends of the most brilliant performers and minds of our time. What a tribute this was to a legendary hip hop artist. You can see some more 2Pac art on my artists blog with a surreal illustration I made in memoriam recently at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/in-memoriam-tupac-shakur.html

Tupac stood for realness...this shit right here stands for fakeness...like the whole music industry nowadays... a dead man shouting out people in 2012...lmao!

    LOL @ people saying this was Epic They came up with a computer generated image of a dead rapper and put it on stage with people he never met & didnt like Only thing this proves to me is that greed has no limitations But fuck it, since we're doing this, why dont they just do holograms of Dre & Snoop Circa 94 back when they didnt suck

    2pac was my favorite rapper but that hologram shit was just wrong on every level possible If god wants the dead to walk the earth again he'll arrange it himself I'd imagine, plus they computer altered his voice to shout out a festival that didnt exist when he was alive, all the while he was on stage with a man that he hated, SMH Interscope hit a new low with this shit

    • lmao

      I agree!...what god had to to with it??? Well, Pac was religious, he made tracks mentioning god ( a lot)...and some money hungry white people just tried to ressurect pac the cheapest way u can imagine. so let a dead man rest in peace and listen to his music u retards. Besides there was no hologram type of shit in '96, so how do u know if he would agree to this shit.

      honestly if god didnt want the mothafucka to walk on earth he would make people smart enough to make a hologram you dumb mfs. stop bringing god into this shit like he has anything to do with this. this MAN made concert was fucking epic and your god had nothing to do with it

      ^^^^^^^^ What you just said makes absolutely no sense. pac recorded those vocals when he was alive,granted I'd rather they not switch his beats around but this hologram shit was totally manufactured, one has nothing to do with the other

      Stop getting religious. If God wanted the dead to speak... there would be no need for cds. So stop listening to Pac if you wanna let him rest... but I agree with the Dre part.

  • Johnnie

    So I showed the Tupac performance to some friends. Technologically - yeah, that was dope. But doesn't it sort of beg the question of how much does someone own your image/person after you die? I mean... they seriously resurrected his image to perform. Permission from his estate or not... something about that just feels a little morally unsound to me. I'm not hyper-religious or anything like that -- it's just sort of like digital slavery.

Hopefully this isn't the swan song of Dre, Dre if you out there you still have lots to give to hip hop, so please don't retire! Next step, bring the show overseas and I'll be there 1st in line, then bring out the Detox and then, maybe then, call it a day. But not just yet, as you can see n hear there's still huge demand!
