Dr. Dre Speaks On Possibility Of Taking Tupac Hologram On Tour

Dr. Dre says that he will perform again with the hologram at Coachella this weekend.

Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg shocked concertgoers at this past weekend's Coachella festival by performing live with a Tupac hologram. Rumors have circulated that he's in talks to bring the hologram on tour, but Dr. Dre assures that he's "thinking about it" and that "nothing is for sure."

During an on-the-street interview with a photographer for TMZ, Dre said that they're getting the technology perfected so that the hologram is three-dimensional and not two-dimensional. "I’m not sure right now, because right now, it’s a technology that’s happening where the hologram could be 360 degrees. Right now, it’s flat," he said. "It just looks like it’s three-dimensional from the front. But working on some new and different things for the future. Everybody’s in love with it right now, we’re having fun."

Dre, who will perform with the hologram again at Coachella this Sunday, said that he hopes other artists will use the technology to suit their interests. "Hopefully, different artists are able to bring out their favorite artists. Hopefully, we can see Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye. We’ll see what happens."

    PAC ACTUALLY HAD ISSUES W EVERYBODY AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER IT WAS JUST HIS NATURE IM SURE IF HE WERE ALIVE HE WOULD OF TT SNOOP AND DRE SOONER OR LATER..AFENI KNEW THIS AND THATS WHY SHE GAVE THE OK AND THATS ALL I NEED TO KNOW.....PAC STILL LIVES!!!!!

    man f*ck this sh!t , just another lame excuse 2 delay detox , but then again it not andre young anymore , like marshall mathers aint marshall mathers anymore.....

    Dre isnt stupid, that hologram was the most talked about part of the performance. Afeni is doing what she thinks is right to keep Pac's memory alive but Dre is just doing this for buisness reasons, Dre didnt even like 2pac, he got mad when Suge put him on California Love and Pac was one of the main reasons Dre left the Row, now he wants to "Tribute" him, I dont buy it, this is all motivated by buisness, Dre knew the Pac hologram would get people talking and he knew Jimmy Iovine could make it happen because Interscope owns Pac's catalouge thats why he's doing a pac hologram instead of Eazy E, who he actually had much more of a relationship with.

  • IDK

    Random comment: Instead of a hologram of 2Pac, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg should have done one for Eazy-E. Unlike their unsettled amends with 2Pac, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg made amends with Eazy-E before he died of AIDS.

    • HRH

      I heard Easy-E died after suffering from a raped by an individual that Dre and Jerry Heller had hired though

    dre's a lazy fuck , constantly going to restaurants , the gym, nobody takes a decade to bring out a album , there ain't gonna be a fuckin tour this dude's been lying out of his ass

  • soda soda

  • soda soda

  • jaeee

    i dont think dre is useing pacs name for money dr dre has his own, look at eminem 50 cent snoop dre made music with them and made his own money. if dre wanted to use pac for his name he would of done it long time ago i think hes just paying respect and letting ppl have fun that dident get a chance to see him alive he did one show with the hologram. plus he asked his mom.ppl just haten man smh,everyone knows who dr dre is since hes still active his name never left so hes not trying to reboot something thats allready working hes just added more fresh shit

  • YESSIR

  • YESSIR

    WATCH TUPAC GOING TO HAVE A DRE BEATS TAT ACROSS HIS CHEST

  • mario

    Dre and pac were not real enemies!!!!!!!you stupid fucks...Suge put Pac up to that when Dre left death row ...before that google interview with pac and dre on mtv where pac is saying dre is his favorite producer of all time and everything else.....Pacs mom is down with this and dr dre gave big money to tupac foundation get yall shit right you whining lil sissies

    • truthurts

      suck a d*ck mario. pac was mad at dre for not showin support while snoop was on trial u dumb sh*t. and since we talking about interviews, yes, pac did say dre is his favourite producer, but that was early on when he just got to deathrow. go listen to the one where pac said he's sick of dre claimin beats he aint even produce. daz played a bigger part in producing all eyez on me. so pac was callin dre out... suge aint put pac upto sh*t. yall seen that phony fake azz dre interview... "i'ma just do positive music, no violence, no drugs" pac dies....next minute.... dre day nicca, ak nicca. album called chronic. song called bang bang GTFOH. fake azz dre and his supporters. stop wasting webspace.

  • FFS

    Dre and Snoop should just leave the dead man alone, f**cking leeches using a dead man for financial perspectives. 2pac didn't get of to good terms with Dre and Snoop before he died...

  • Anonymous

    "Wouldn't you love to know that 15+ years after you die people still have love for you and appreciate your work" Make no mistake. It's all about cold hard cash. Dre and company know if they promote this 2pac hologram thing, it will mean they can charge more for admission, plus more people means more money for them. When you watch a movie. Wouldn't you lose some respect for say Arnold if you go see his comeback movie and it's obvious his stunt double is doing everything? Granted, the stunt man is a real person as opposed to a image on a screen, but you get my point. It's still fake.

  • An Average Dude

    So did anyone else skip reading this interview & go to the comments?

    • Anonymous

      hahaha yup. just to see how many people would bitch. give anyone here a ticket to coachella and they'd be all about it.

  • Anonymous

    Why are some of yall hating, this is EPIC! hip hop fans should be happy Tupac was the first major icon to be used in concert like this, this only helps in legacy. Wouldn't you love to know that 15+ years after you die people still have love for you and appreciate your work? people miss you enough to want to see a hologram of you?

  • harveybabyyy

    Niggas be bitching

  • GoReadABook

    The MINUTE Dre drops Detox all you bandwagon haters are gonna be right up on his nuts again. Fucking loser ass nobody's...its like hating is the new cool shit to do

  • ItsTheTruth

    Predictive programming much? There gonna bring back all these dead people, but what happens when they stage a false flag event and you all fall for it? What happens if they bring back Jesus as a second coming or stage an alien invasion and got yall running wild like chickens with the heads off? Project Blue Beam ppl Why you think there so many movies about the end of the world and so many alien movies? Sure its popular and makes money but u ever think Hollywood preparin ur ass for somethin? Aint tryna sound like a conspiracy theory but its worth it to be knowledgeable about new world order/illuminati. If they really gave a fuck about yall, they would have pac performing songs like 'Changes' and have him saying 'Killuminati' like he did when he was alive, but I bet u they cut that shit out.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Lil Wayne and Drake will perform with Jimi Hednrix, Michael Jackson, Miles Davis and Kurt Cobain. modern legend meets with old legends. new rock star meets with old rock stars. yesss. swag

  • Floyd

    The older people may get mad but I feel it is a good way to keep their legacy alive (sort of) especially with the younger generation. Im sure the estate of these artists wouldn't be happy unless they get a nice chunk of change, which is understandable. Dr. Dre donated to the Tupac fund.

    • Anonymous

      LOL i'm 18 and disagree with the Hologram and this story proves exactly why it's just another business venture/money making scheme. More niggas made money off Pac then he ever did himself fucking pathetic. Wanna pay tribute so play his music, play footage get the Outlawz to perform y'all gonna say this was homage to Pac and the Outlawz weren't even there? What kinda shit is that this ain't about paying respect it's about cashing in on another opportunity. Some disrespectful shit.

  • Daddy

    I wonder how people would feel if a hologram of Elvis or Paul Mcartney/Beatles performed? I figure you may have to take age into consideration too. What do you all think?

  • Stop Wasting Time

    Will you stop stalling and just release Detox for fucks sake!! LOL Pac never even liked this studio gangster, get the fuck off his nuts.

  • Alf Capone

    after reading through some of these comments i only have one thing to ask. you niggas really all that uptight about a tupac hologram?

    • Anonymous

      Do you think pac even knew this would be fucking possible? If he did maybe his wishes would have been this, you don't fuckin know and last time I checked.. every rapper especially pac, wants to be remembered in any way shape or form so this is exactly that.

    • Alf Capone

      i dont think pac would give a shit. im not for or against the use of the hologram. just dont understand what the big deal is

    • Ace Of Spadez

      Well Pac himself said anytime ya'll wanna see me again, just close your eyes rewind this track and picture him rollin. Niggas ain't respecting his true wishes.

  • Anonymous

    Dear Dr. Dre, Why would you use a hologram of Pac? Pac didnt like you!!!! And besides you said it yourself you and Pac were never friends!!!!

  • jason

    Notorious is an old Duran Duran song Puff has sampled lisa stansfield, david bowie, led zepplin etc. but most unless they do there fucking homework dont know that thats disrespectful!!!

  • Jason

    looks like Raekwon wants to bring out ODB. And i know Michael Jackson will live on with this. Maybe even a new show at Vegas or Disney with this technology. i dont see how its disrespectful if permission is granted i mean hip-hop is full of sampling forgotten about music from others and no one bitches about that they just let it happen then try to sue.

  • mgruppe.com

    I DONT GIVE A FUCK IF HIS MAMA APPROVED THIS SHIT - PAC IS DEAD. LET HIM REST IN PEACE SONS OF BITCHES.

  • ya'll tripping let the dead rest

    so disrespectful, not even the dead can rest. they are going to take HoloPac on tour and make fucking crazy loot off a dead mans works and life. Aye, why dont you do something for yourself Dre, and fucking drop detox. I complete agree with Mr flamboyant down there. And fuck c-bo sayin that shit, i saw coachella live and when i saw holopac come out thats the first thing i thought, how disrespectful and i KNEW they would talk and probably take holoPac on tour, disgusting.

  • L-Boogie

    Dre has become an overrated shell of his former self! Repetitive ass beats with the same piano loop now.

    Don't let Suge see this hologram. He'll just pay to have it shot full of holes.

  • YESSIR

    THEY ABOUT TO GO TO FAR WITH THIS I CAN SEE IT NOW. AND WHY HAVE A HOLOGRAM WHEN YOU GOT TWO OF THE BEST TO EVER DO IT RIGHT NOW DRAKE AND WAYNE

  • Mr Flamboyant

    And if he does this shit, don't be surprised if someone or something kills his greedy ass... Look. This should be a one shot deal. Don't profit off of this man's legacy and death by touring with his hologram. This is some straight vulture nonsensical madness. I understand about keeping one's legacy alive. But it's a damn shame when you take one's legacy and cash off of it, especially when the person in question didn't even like your ass. Dre is a bitch ass nigga. He's a blood sucker. A vulture. He needs to release detox and stop plotting ways to get paid off of every fucking thing. Hell you've ran rampant with those gatdamn overrated garbage headphones as it is and forcing them down our throats. Just get to making music and RELEASING the music. Ol' Esau ass niggas. Mufuckas do anything to get rich and sell anything up to their God given birthright.

      Damn, dude. You went all out on Dr. Dre haha lol. But I agree with you 100%

    • BALLINASSNIGGA

      why cop beats by dre when you can just get Bose, Sennheiser or Shure? i win.. oh and yeah, and being a vulture off of tupacs legacy when his moms gave the OK.. tragic, tragic indeed

    • L-Boogie

      Word! I agree, Dre is a fucking leech who hasn't produced anything hot since The Documentary. The man literally has no pride, why cash in on someone who called you a fucking homo and all kinds of shit. This nigga will be trying to use an Eazy E hologram next. And to evryone saying Pac's gave the ok so it shouldn't matter, it does matter because she's not a hip hop fan!

    • Meagain

      Oh yeah beats by Dre bang.... Seems like your broke ass couldn't afford to buy it. Good day and kill yourself

    • ^^^^^Hater

      Oh now he a,vulture because c-bo said it right? I swear hiphopdx people follow the hate trend like birds follow bread. And FYI many many people have already profit off of tupac legacy!!! And BTW his mother gave the OK..... Seems like you are the blood sucking vulture looking to hate on someone for honoring a legend!!!! Fuck you and your hating views.... GTFOH!!!!!

    They dont even ask him about Detox no more smh

    • dfkjfkg

      yeah cuz its just a myth, a ploy to get people to look at dre. i bet detox has been done for years and that bitch nigga just wont drop it for the sake of not doing it. i hope kendrick can USE the shit outta dre and get him to actually put material out. bum ass nigga just sittin in the shadows waitin for the idea of holopac to be born to make his re-emergence. lol i bet since holopac is out now, and they probably will do a tour, and that bitch nigga will finally say "oh detox coming this day...."

      Dre and Snoop don't need to eat off of Tupac, they have their own money lol this is coming from a good place, they're trying to help keep his legacy alive. Even if they weren't on great terms when he died they still knew the man and i think Pac would appreciate the love.
