Wow!! technology is good. How can you raise someone from the dead to perform at a conceret?
Well that is what happned yesterday.... sort of.
Hologram creator Nick Smith recently brought the iconic rapper back to life for yesterday's Snoop and Dr. Dre set Coachella concert. The Tupac image,which was all Dr. Dre's idea, was created by Hologram creator Nick Smith in the very realistic likeness of the late rapper .He even perormed his tracks "Hail Mary" and "2 of Americaz Most Wanted."
According to Mtv,
Smith said he wasn't allowed to talk about the creative aspects of the production — including how the hologram was able to seemingly perform the set in synch with Snoop and whether all the vocals were 'Pac's — but he did say that his company has the ability to recreate long-dead figures and visually recreate them in the studio. "You can take their likenesses and voice and ... take people that haven't done concerts before or perform music they haven't sung and digitally recreate it," he said.
The shirtless Timbaland-wearing Tupac hologram (which cost anywhere from 100K-400K) opened up alongside Snoop & Dre (who have been working together for 2 decades now) saying "What's Up Coachella?!"
