Kendrick Lamar, meanwhile, says, 'This dude was great and he'll live forever when you got people that's willing to go out and spend damn near millions to make a hologram on you.'
People were astounded by Tupac Shakur's hologram performance at Coachella and so was Warren G, who joined Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's set where the late rapper was brought to life. The rapper said he's in awe when witnessing the projected image beforehand at the rehearsal.
"When I first seen it when we were in rehearsal, it gave me chills," the Hip-Hop star opened up to MTV News. "I was like, 'Whoa, wow,' because it looked like him, it talked like him, it just moved like him, it's just like, 'Damn.' It was a trip."
Another MC who joined the set, Kendrick Lamar, stated, "It just let you know that this dude was great and he'll live forever when you got people that's willing to go out and spend damn near millions to make a hologram on you. It was just a crazy feeling, made me think of that one moment when I seen dude in real life."
Though he didn't know about the hologram image until it appeared on stage, Kendrick said he already had a feeling that the Sunday, April 15 gig wouldn't be like any other. "The moment that Dre and Snoop walked out on that stage, I knew it was something way bigger than what I imagined it to be," he shared.
"When I finally got to see it along with the other hundred thousand people, it was just something that I didn't think nobody could ever do," he gushed. "I didn't even know this dude was thinking up no crazy s**t like that."
Tupac Shakur was resurrected on the third day of desert party Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The virtual rapper greeted the concertgoers and performed songs like "Hail Mary" and "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted". Rihanna and Katy Perry were among big stars who were awestruck by the stunt, which was Dr. Dre's idea.
