Well, according to TMZ, that is indeed the case. Despite having passed away over a year ago, the people putting together Up In Smoke 2.0 – otherwise known as Coachella’s headlining set of Dr. Dre, Snoop, Eminem and Tha Dogg Pound – have apparently worked it where the late, great G-Funk crooner will be performing aside his former homies as a hologram. That’s right, a motherf*cking hologram.
Personally, as one of the biggest fans I know of Nate, I have a hard time wrapping my head around this news. I just can’t quite figure out if it’s a disgusting ploy to bolster a superstar set-list or simply a futuristic way to give longtime fans a chance to their favorite Dogg lead the pack. Either way, the only way something this drastic works is if the holographic Mr. Hale looks impeccable up there on stage along his comrades. Otherwise, the awkwardness could very easily ruin the whole set.
