Snoop & Dr. Dre brought Tupac Shakur back from the dead for a showstopping finale to the first Coachella weekend on Sunday night.
Shakur appeared as a hologram on the festival stage after a tribute performance of his hit California Love and the late star ‘teamed up’ with Snoop on “Ain’t Nothin’ Like A Gangsta Party” after an eerie solo rendition of “Hail Mary” from beyond the grave.
The ghostly apparition drew mixed reactions from those watching the set online, with one fan calling it “wrong on so many levels” and others stunned by the Tupac trick, tweeting, “WTF!”
But most rap fans were thrilled, including the stars in attendance. Katy Perry tweeted, “I think I might have cried when I saw Tupac,” while her pal Rihanna boasted: “TupacBACK unbelievable IWASTHERE STORY4myGrandKidz (sic).”
