Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg To Consider Including Tupac Hologram In Future Tours

Representatives for Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg plan to discuss using the virtual Tupac in future tours.

Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's Coachella performance on Sunday (April 15) turned heads when a hologram of the late Tupac Shakur performed alongside the West Coast legends, doing renditions of "Hail Mary" and "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted."

The Wall Street Journal reports that representatives for both Snoop and Dre will discuss logistics for a tour involving the partners-in-rhyme and Pac.

The proposed tour could involve other artists such as Eminem, 50 Cent, and Wiz Khalifa, or could just feature Dre and Snoop as headliners.

"This is just the beginning," said Ed Ulbrich, the chief creative officer for Digital Domain Media Group, Inc., the company responsible for bringing Pac to "life" onstage. "Dre has a massive vision for this."

Dr. Dre and his production team approached Digital Domain a year ago to see whether it was possible to create a hologram of Tupac like the one that performed on Sunday. The company began working on the Coachella performance four months ago.

"To create a completely synthetic human being is the most complicated thing that can be done," said Ulbrich.

    • r

      true. if dre can get at sum1 to make this happen then think what the world powers can do and probly have already got.. just better

  • What

    One Question to snoop and Dr.Dre when the hell you'll going let that nigga Pac RIP man, and just keep his music alive, if one more rapper try to bring him back on a song using some lyrics he already said or on hologram to get paid, the nigga just might get up out of the grave and start slaping nigga so they can leave him to hell along, when the nigga was alive, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg left him on death row for self, nigga is death and he is every rapper best friend from west cost too the East cost, from the nort the south, yo what part of the game is that, niggas lookiing suppect.

  • ETK

    Smh Dre run an idea into the ground why don't you

  • T-Streets

    Why do yall keep saying Pac never liked Snoop & Dre? Gave me one good reason why he never liked Snoop when he was with him til the day he died (don't worry I'll wait!) & they were on stage together in the past. While all along the only reason the disagreements even happened was because Suge & the media (all of u guys) hype it up when Dre left Death row. All this hype was is 2pac being loyal to Suge since he bailed him outta jail. So somebody please explain yalls point on why yall really mad instead of enjoying the fact that yall could see atleat 1 live Pac concert?

    tupac was a ballet dancer not a fuckin thug that was a image pac was fruity

    • wey787

      yeah you fuckin right. Pac acted if he was a gangster just like Rick Ross. Besides Pac didnt like Dr Dre and Snoop

  • Anonymous

    Tupac didn't like neither one of them fake ass niggas, so they need to stop with that game.

  • jg

    its fuckin lame forreal if you gna pay to go to a concert to watch a hologram of a nigga thats been dead for 16 years

  • BwS

    im a big pac fan but that shit was corny.

    It took them four months to create a hologram that synced properly for performing 2 tracks. How long do you think it'd take them to do one for a whole show? and everyone is saying make Biggie, Eazy E, Big L. Like they can be pulled out of a pyrotechnics ass or something... getting the voice was probably also a tricky deal. I could imagine in 50 years time artists would be rich enough to never tour again, they'd just send out holograms and it'd be like hip hop in spirit. You'd have all these old dead rappers on stage and it would just be like they never died just transformed into a fucking expensive show of lights...

  • stacybaby

    Pac, Snoop & Tha Dogg Pound Biggie, Jay & Kim Nate, Warren & Quik D12 all together iono if they could do Bugz but give it a shot Big L, Cam & Ma$e Pun, Joe & NORE

  • jesterxxl

    I think they should only do holograms on special occasions don't rape the concept. I wanna see black Mike & white Mike singin Black or White to each other now that shit would be epic!

  • #profitoffthedeadswag

    Make sure you download gunplay's "106 & snort" (I love rap music) mixtape

  • Tyrannical T

    Taking it too far. Once at Coachella seemed like Pac had risen from the dead to perform but if your gonna play a hologram night in and night out, its almost like you own that person. Pac wouldn't be game for extended tour use

  • PjM

    See, this is just like Dre; milk a great concept for all that its worth. If Tupac's mom decides to sue, she's got her work cut out for her.

  • um

    My granpa hologram would be betta

  • hage

    where can i pre-order tickets ? would be fucking awesome tour no doubt.

  • Real music

  • I.T. Guy

    better have 2 programs running in sync b/c if one crashes, it's going to be bad and look pathetic. re-doing this is not a good look. it's too weird

    Somebody should sneak into the control rooms for the next show and have the 2pac hologram sing "Toss It Up" right to Dre's face

    • Anonymous

      and hack into the system to make a biggie hologram come on stage and tell 2pac "its time we finish this"

  • DAA

    Make an Eazy-e hologram and bring out the whole N.W.A group on stage and a biggie and big L hologram
