Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre promised us something epic for their show-stopping  Coachella performance, and they followed through. Resurrecting Tupac in hologram form was one of the dopest things conceivable. They pulled off the digital feat without a hitch, and got the Internet and Hip-Hop community buzzing.

Some weren't impressed, but to others seeing Pac on stage 15 years after his death was the best thing since sliced bread. Surely at least two people in the crowd pissed their pants from the sheer excitement of thinking Tupac was back, literally. It was a moment for the ages, as far as Hip-Hop concerts are concerned. But do we want to see it again? I don't, and here are five reasons why.

  • The Truth

    Shut up! I liked it.

      I'm sayin who ever wrote this article could fck up a wet dream!  I mean is all this 
      criticism of a hologram necessary?!? Now I do agree that it should'nt be "ran into the ground" now that it has been done but let's give it the props it deserves.

  • Champhf

    finally got to watch video and it was OK at best...!!!

  • granky161

    i disagree, think of michael jackson when he did the moonwalk...he did it for decades ad it never got old. The first time will always be the most magical but them tributing Pac like this at concerts will not lessen the value, mostly everyone was hyped to see this, Pac is setting the bar from the grave this was very creative.

  • Sgatebrooks

    *****ing your pants over this crap! Some people nowadays simply lack the ability to have high standards- or expectations of themselves and others. I guess that one reason some people continue to listen to Hip-Hop in its current form.

  • LYRICS

    I'M SORRY, BUT EFF THE NEGATIVITY!! THAT ISH WAS AWESOME!! I GREW UP ON PAC (STILL HIS #1FAN TIL THIS DAY) N' 4 THE PPL LIKE ME WHO, WERE TOO YOUNG TO GO TO HIS CONCERTS (BACK IN THE DAY), THAT WAS A GR8 EXPERIENCE!!! LONG LIVE PAC....HOLOGRAM OR NOT!!!!

    • Charnika_tilford

      I agree totally!

  • TUPAC4EVER

    I would pay to go see him, even if its just a hologram because hes that AWESOME!!!

  • JayandNic’s Mom

    Wow the person who wrote this negativity needs a life damn let people be happy about a hologram if they want to

  • Peachiepcutiepie88

    I totally agree, with how "in the wrong hands" (which it already is) can be scary. Wake up you FawKtards, our govnt just purchased 400 millionp hollow point bullets, that's
    2 bullets for every man, woman, and child in America. Wake up sheeple

  • Kenya

    Yea and when they hologram the second coming of Jesus that ish ain't gon be so damn cool then now will it?

    • Know_the_ledge

      That's what I'm saying. You start seeing an alien invasion and you don't know what's what.

    shout out to the author.

  • @dreadsolodolo

    Yo son stop blogging.. Dat ish was epic, jus like the whole tour would b. You sound like a grade A hater

  • Choklt105

    It was ok to see this once, but putting tupac or any dead artist on tour is a bit much. This gimmick will get old real quick.

  • TheBossHimself

    I can't stop watching it!!

  • insatiable

    The writer didn't say it wasn't epic. He just said in the wrong hands it can quickly become overdone. I want to add the adjective CHEAP to the list. Mj moonwalking live and breathing isn't the same as this hologram, dead and gone. They ain't gonna let them rest. Rappers gonna start shooting themselves and each other just so they can return as a hologram. You mean, white singers had access to this technology all this time but instead let a black dude use it first? ITS A TRAP! ITS A TRAP!! Danger. Danger. They coulda brought back John Lennon but instead they let Tupac go first?! Danger. Danger. .....I'm just saying.

  • Interested Reader

    so where are the 5 reasons?

    • Comfort_zone74

       I got to four and then either lost count or he believes the one, 'It was all of those things', counts as a reason. The other four I guess a person can see as reasons. LOL

      1. It was amazing.
      2. It was groundbreaking.
      3. It was a little creepy (we'll get
      to that later).
      4. It was awe-inspiring.
      5(?). It was all of those things.

  • john

    Does anyone remember that pac's biggest fear was being reincarnated? I don't think pac would like this technology at all, honestly its just disrespectful.
