Tupac Shakur’s now infamous Coachella performance got many rap fans wondering who else should get the hologram treatment. While names like the Notorious B.I.G. and Ol’ Dirty Bastard came to mind, another name on the too long list of late rappers worth mention is Soulja Slim. Fellow New Orleans rapper Juvenile was close friends with Slim and we asked what he would think of creating a hologram of the “Slow Motion” rapper.
Juvie told Hip-Hop Wired, “If somebody came to me to do a hologram, a situation just like [Tupac’s], for Soulja Slim, my first reaction would be, ‘Okay, how do Ms. Linda feel about this?’ How do his family feel about this? Will his family be compensated for this?’ These are things that [have] to be answered before I give my real opinion on how I feel about it… Maybe, if it’s a good thing and his mom agree with it, Yeah I’ll go with it. But like I said, a lot of people would like their loved ones to rest in peace.”
