Looks like acclaimed headphones salesman Dr. Dre just found yet another way to distract us from his eternally unfinished Detox album. “Hey, look over there – it’s Tupac!”
“It’s great,” the Chronic rapper-producer said of the Tupac Shakur hologram he and Snoop Dogg unveiled during their headline performance at Coachella last weekend. “It came out perfect. We’re gonna have a good time with it.”
“I think everybody’s in love with it right now,” he continued. “We’re having fun.”
Of course, all eyez will be on the virtual rapper at this Sunday’s Coachella redux, but the big question still remains: Will Dre be taking Tupac 3000 on the road this summer?
“Thinking about it,” Dre confirmed, while adding that nothing was final yet. The 47-year-old rap star also mentioned that he’s ”working on some new and different things for the future” and even hinted that similar holograms of Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye could one day stalk the land as well.
If nothing else, Dr. Dre as movie producer can turn this premise into an amazing horror movie.
