Dr. Dre Kills Rumors Of Tupac Hologram Tour

Dr. Dre says that the hologram was "strictly for Coachella" but that he hasn't entirely ruled out the possibility of taking it on tour.

Last weekend, Dr. Dre shocked attendees at Coachella by performing with a hologram of Tupac Shakur. But during a recent message thanking the fans, he killed rumors that he was going on tour with the technology and that it was strictly for the festival.

"It was strictly for Coachella, get it right. I want to get rid of all the rumors out there. This was not done for a tour," said Dre, who didn't entirely rule out the possibility. "If a tour happens, we'll see. This was done strictly for Coachella 2012, just for you."

Dre previously stated that he was in talks to take the hologram on tour, but he left it at that. Many weighed in on the technology, with rappers like Kendrick Lamar, Nas and Common praising the performance. C-Bo, on the other hand, said that Dre and Snoop Dogg were "vultures" for using Pac's image in that way.

  • jason

    does anyone else notice on the back of the doggystyle cd it says the last track is called the next episode but the real last track is pump pump. wierd how the next episode was on Chronic 2001 years later. talk about a huge misprint. anyone else have a Snoop cd like that?

    • Anonymous

      That's because there is a song called The Next Episode from 1993 with Snoop and Dre. It's on Youtube. What happened was that they couldn't clear the sample in time so they either had to push the album back or just release the album without it, which they did since the demand for Doggystyle was so big at the time and they had already pushed it back a few times so they decided to release it.

  • Dr. Dre

    I have decided to release Detox in 2012. Thank You

    I agree that PAC was one of the greatest ..... But in reality he was just as fake as today's rappers........ I bet none of u kids knew he was from New York and he was a great student and never caused problems until he gained fame

    • Why

      Realy.. Come On Man. Anybody that know whatz good about Pac as an artist knows that He was MC New York way before he moved out west to persue a career. Same as his drug game stint,, cuz he was smart enough to listen to his people that said he was musically talented and shouldn't be wastin' his time wit slangin dope. It'z the terms. The Terminology! None of us knew Pac personally like family, but W()W ...It'z like you are comparing dude to some fake clowns. Granted you didn't clarify what rappers you think are hot today anyway.. that ain't what it Iz though, Iz it.. Understand Entertainment, If u Doin that, it can cross many platforms of media. Itz Expression, It Can be Art . It can Be Real. Being Locked up and Killin' a bunch of People isn't Gangsta... Puttin' food on the table for your family, THATz Gangsta Pac wordz R the truth. Realizm in America I know you can tell the difference between a rick ross rap & a 2pac rap... You create your own reality, yet Pac was a thinking mans man. didnt focus on his shine strictly,, more looking for a way to make dramatic changes that affect the common person It Iz what It Iz

      What really is real? Did you guys know that the 'rap game'/industry is all entertainment, and unless if you have some guys that are just rapping for fun, most likely they are trying to portray an image of some sort to entertain and make $, that's what entertainers do. What is art? what is real art? What is good art? USE YOUR BRAINS, THINK!

    • Mr. Awesome

      @Why Actually what Anonymous is saying is 100% true from 2Pac's own mouth. 2Pac himself stated that he never really sold drugs; he tried it once and he sucked @ it so his niggaz told him to fall back and they'd hold him down. Also, 2Pac NEVER had a criminal record until he got in the rap game. Why do you think he was so good @ acting? Because he's an ACTOR! He was very talented and very intelligent, so he put forth this persona that he was such a thug azz nicca, but why is it that the nigga was gettin' shot and not shootin' back? (though, in all fairness, he DID shoot 2 cops, live to tell it, got sued by the cops and WON, so that is pretty dope lol) I mean I love the nigga as much as anybody here, but I think it's doing him a disservice if we ain't gonna keep it real and call a spade a spade......

  • Mr Obvious

    I wonder why they took out the line about the illuminati in the beginning of Hail Mary?

    • TruthSpeaker

      You fucking anonymus,there was such an illuminate word,this is the devil's plan to fuc you up idiot and faggots not to get its idea.obviously the illuminati does nt want to appear in the limelight cos its a devil shit...thats the main reason they don wanna get exposed ya byatch.

    • Mr Obvious

      They left the intro the same except for the word "killuminati". Listen to both versions again. Dont know why you would edit a dead mans art?

    • Anonymous

      They took out the whole intro because it wouldn't make any sense in the context of a performance you fuckwits. Unfuckingbelievable.

      "Killuminati"

      There wasnt a line about the illuminati in the first place in hail mary

  • Tray

    How the FUCK is this killing a rumor? "it was strictly for Coachella," but the possibility to use the hologram on a tour is not completely ruled out. That's not how you kill rumors, that's how you start them.

  • charles smith

    Dre can't do the tour with pac's hologram without paying his mom he's a real bitch him and snoop yes i said it westside.

  • Real talk

    Dre is a business man he know why he doing this trust me because he making a lots of money go to www.Streetleaguemovement to see what I mean

  • Rob

    Dre can say all this but know one takes him seriously anymore! just fucking release detox dre

    • gok

      If Dre does nothing why would artists still come to him for beats. Why is it that he's just so happened to be involved in more classic albums than any other producer? RETARD

    • Anonymous

      You don't care who makes the beats or writes the raps but you're always the ones saying Puffy is wack....Or saying this one or that one has ghost writers...Hiphop fans are the biggest fucking hypocrites on earth. Dre DOES NOTHING...And the only reason he's still around today is because Eminem used to name drop him like crazy when he was at the height of his career.

    • BlazeDatIshUp

      ^^^^lol...Exactly... Some people are idiots though. Are we not allowed to want another album from an artist's who first two albums were dope as fuck. People await music from these current wack rappers who all sound the same, look the same and their lyrics either make no sense or are just plain stupid. The beats and lyrics are always on point with Dre's albums regardless of who writes or produces them, and usually the people featured have different styles, flows, etc, so it all makes for a great album.. Anyway, I'm hoping Detox comes out this year. Dre is a perfectionist and I believe he said this is his last album, so he probably wants to make sure it's the best album out period.

    • Anonymous

      ^^^^^^ Because, regardless of how many people helped, his first 2 albums were incredible. I dont care if has a team of Robots making the beats and a team of monkeys writing the lyrics, if it comes out as good as The Chronic or 2001 thats all I care about

    • Anonymous

      Why the fuck do you care about Detox? Because other people do? Dre uses ghost writers AND ghost producers...I don't understand why people still care, or even cared at all.

  • Anonymous

    Why need a hologram when most retards believe he isn't dead and is coming back soon.

  • Anonymous

    Dre would have to go on tour first for that to happen, he's only been on 3 tours his entire life, the NWA tour in 89, The Death Row tour in 93 & The Up in smoke tour in 2000

    i agree with c bo you got to obey a man's last dying wish. i'm a real nigga dont let me die and then surround me with faggots and phonies. that are desperate and only using me to make money.

      I'm sure if Tupac were alive he'd be happy and surprised to still be relevant, not caring about the rest of it, just that people care so much about the man tupac and what he had to say. Most musicians, actors, entertainers, especially rappers, come and go, Tupac is STILL RELEVANT! Dope.

    • ETK

      That wasn't his wish. That's your wish.

    Some one once joked that Tupac Shakur is the hardest working deadman that they know.
