Almost sixteen years after his death, Tupac once again claims the stage. A hologram of Tupac produced by AV Concepts was joined by Snoop Dog and Dr. Dre at the California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival in what only one word can describe, WOW! On Twitter, a @HologramTupac account has been created and has over six thousand followers. But the owner is not known.
Fans have shown both approval and disapproval with the concept. Many of the fans who disagree believe the slain rapper should be left in peace and argue that capitalizing on the dead is unethical.
I grew up listening to Tupac I watched him go from the rap group Digital Underground to becoming one of the greatest rappers of all time. I remember his lyrics from his 2001 single Until the End of Time "Gettin raw till the day I see my casket, Buried as a g while the whole world remembers me" This is exactly how he wanted to be remembered.
