On the last day of Coachella weekend 1, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg stunned their audience when a hologram of Tupac Shakur suddenly appeared on stage for a short set of the deceased rapper’s songs. Tupac’s hologram also performed a duet with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. According to Time magazine, the hologram of Tupac, who was killed in 1996, was created by Digital Domain, which was also responsible for the visual effects in the film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. @9gagtweets (46.000+ followers) posted this image to Twitter as a reaction to the performance.
