Fifteen years after his death, a hologram version of Tupac capped off Coachella‘s first weekend. As a fan of Tupac I’m pretty moved watching it, not to mention seriously impressed by the technology. I wouldn’t call it exploitation because it’s not as if anyone buying tickets knew they were going to see this. But with the technology (and the idea for using it this way) out there, you have to wonder how far this will go. Are we going to see Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, and Bob Marley on stage soon? Not sure how I’d feel about that.
At the end of the day, I’d rather see a Tupac hologram perform than almost any other living rappers today. RIP to one of the greatest.
