Nate Dogg To Perform At Coachella… Via Hologram

blame it on Shake April 12, 2012

According to TMZ (… I know), Nate Dogg will be making an appearance during Snoop and Dre’s set at Coachella this weekend.

Sources tell us, Dr. Dre didn’t want to leave Nate out of his Sunday performance — so he’s incorporating his old friend using hologram technology … the same technology that broadcast Mariah Carey’s image across Europe last year … at 5 simultaneous concerts.

We’re told an image of Nate will be projected onto the Coachella stage — alongside Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Warren G, and Daz Dillinger — to make it appear as though he’s actually performing on stage.

According to sources, Nate will perform several songs.

I can only imagine how horribly wrong this is gonna be once people start abusing the technology (and you know it will happen soon enough). Pac and Big performing together at Summer Jam 2015 and shit. Smh…

    DON’T HATE. Dre just want to pay hommage. how wrong is this ?


    cmon now, isn’t this the dude that didn’t have the money to pay his medical bills? but they got money to make holograms of him?

  • who cares

    The fuck is this?

  • OH SHIT, this gives me a GREAT IDEA!

  • zzzzzzzzzzz

    lmaooo dead at that biggie pac shit.

    this is like when black people got DVR, and now every basketball video on worldstar is a nigga talking mad loud and rewinding the play, recording the screen with their android.

    real shit though: this is a damn shame

  • Shake has a point.

    This technology is gonna be abuse just like autotune was.

    @Skinkmeaner, Nate Dogg’s friends DON’T HAVE TO PAY his medical bills, Nate should of had that taken care of just in case he got sick and died.
    Dre, Snoop, Warren G & his other friends can choose weather or not they can help his fam out

  • Smh

    @ “Assad” lol I see what you did there.

    makaveli returns in 2016

  • P.

    …this is genius…he left his fam with no $$…can’t do shows or work if you dead…wait…yes you can..see by Dre using his likeness or hologram the fam can now get a little $$ in their pocket…

  • I wonder if Dre or Snoop read 2DB, because it was just confirmed that Tupac’s hologram is joining in.

    You won’t have to wait long to see 2pac on stage as said by matt mcCoy above as he is set to also appear that night and peform all about you with nate dogg

  • Thinker

    Wow they were way ahead of u shake! Smh. For real though dudes gotta learn to be conservative with all this technology. Trying to wear it out within the first month and forget all about it in the next

  • mcd
