Live performance of Snoop Dogg and an hologram of Tupac Shakur (created by San Diego company AV Concepts) @ the 2012 Coachella Festival, April 15th
Dr. Dre envisioned the concept of having a virtual version of the late rap star Tupac Shakur appear as part of his epic rap-legend concert line-up at the Coachella Valley Music Festival in California in April, 2012. Working with Geronimo Productions, The Yard Entertainment and Digital Domain, Dre created a five-minute 'live' performance of 2Pac -- a completely believable, computer-generated likeness of Tupac Shakur. The illusion created was that 'Virtual 2Pac' was on stage with Dre and Snoop for 2 exclusive, original performances on April 15 and April 22.
The goal with 'Virtual 2Pac' was to create something truly mind blowing for fans. 48 hours after the first show, YouTube videos of the live performance (since removed) amassed 10 million+ views. In the week following the second performance, it was reported that 2Pac album sales increased 500%, that 4,000 copies of his 'Greatest Hits' album sold, and that his song 'Hail Mary' sold 13,000 downloads — a 1,500% gain in a week. Days after the performance, Digital Domain's share price rose 50%, with volume increasing by 2,700%. Between April 15 and 22, there was a 500% increase in visits to the 2Pac website and fan acquisition rose by 78%. Days after releasing a video of the performance on his YouTube channel, Snoop Dogg jumped nearly 10 spots to number 20 on the Social 50 — a ranking of the most popular artists on YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.
'Virtual' 2Pac made 2 exclusive appearances at the live outdoor Coachella Valley Music Festival, on April 15 and April 22, 2012, as part of Dr. Dre's and Snoop Dogg's sold-out sets to an estimated 90,000 fans at each show.

Let's go Old School. Fat Boys
Yeah I remember when they did the hologram of him. That was pretty sick would have loved to see that.
First time I saw it I thought my theory was finally confirmed...still alive haha.
Released 16 records alive...74 since death. Immortality anyone?
A guy I really like that not many people know of is Kid Ink
And I might very well have all 90 of those albums.
Someone really downvoted Sean P!? Come on now. Dude is a beast!
I just had to join this thread. Smh at the guy who said 2 chainz and Meek Mill
80s/90s/early 2000s is the best, although I do think there are a few bright spots nowadays. Lupe Fiasco comes to mind, I've never listened to Kendrick Lamar, but I'll give him a shot.
Best rapper of all time, right here. (in my opinion)
track number 6 of illmatic
Alot of you like modern pop rap. I cant explain the golden era of 90s hiphop you were either blessed to grow up with it or you missed it.
Nas, Biggie, Tribe called quest, boot camp, krs one, rakim , wu tang, mobb deep.
Man those were the days!
Nas in his prime couldnt be touch great call. You like sean price?
I can go on and on so many classic 90s records. Even house of pains albums were sick.
???? Is that a real question. black thought is amazing.
a little something i mixed
old school breakdancing
and black ceasar
WE ARE! And we will always be...
I have listened to him with Boot Camp Clik, but I've never listened to his individual stuff.
Haha, I agree about House Of Pain. They're awesome. They pop up on my Beastie Boys Pandora radio all the time.
Nas is really really really high on my list.
NY State of Mind is an epic track.
I thought this was a hip hop thread? Two hours and no one mentioned this...should've been first.
Eric B and Rakim - Dont Sweat The Technique. I love this song so i made a video of it haha
This will forever be 'my jam'. Pretty sure I blew out multiple speakers in my car in HS on this one.
Red and Meth! Da Rockwilder Blackout LaLalalalaallalaaaaaaaaa!!

New-Era I agree with you. 90's gangsta rap is what I grew up on early 2000's were good also. I mentioned some of those names in my first post. I'm more of an east coast - west coast guy haha remember that beef real old school. I like this thread don't think it warranted any down votes everyone has their own taste in music.
