Quick Before It’s Removed: Hologram Tupac Shakur at Coachella 2012!

Wow. I thought I’d be posting about Radiohead‘s set this weekend from Coachella this weekend. Now there had been plenty of buzz about Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre‘s co-headlining set last night and who would be making special cameos (Eminem, of course), but I don’t think anyone saw the 2pac appearance coming! The resurrection was the brainchild of Dre and carried out by San Diego based company A/V Concepts. I wonder if his mom Afeni Shakur was there? She’s been a huge advocate for art programs for youth and peace within the hip hop community. Actually that might have been a bit heavy – seeing your kid re-created 15 years after his death? Scratch that idea. Hopefully someday we’ll get to interview her for VML. Anyway MTV has the inside scoop on how this was pulled off… On top of this magical moment, Eminem, 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa, Tony Yayo, Warren G and Kurupt joined Dre and Snoop onstage. Wonder what will happen next weekend for Coachella Part 2? Like, I will cry. For real. Set list after the jump (thanks BV)!
