This past weekend the big talk from Coachella was Dr. Dre and Snoop’s use of a Tupac Shakur Hologram during their set. While the move evoked some strong reactions both for and against, the late rapper’s mother Afeni was thrilled with the idea, as were close friends like Naughty By Nature.
In a recent interview with TheUrbandaily.com’s Jonathan Hailey (@JaySpeakeasy )rapper/actor Common weighed in on whether he’d resurrect his late friend and collaborator James J-Dilla Yancey via hologram.
“Yeah, that would be incredible,” he said. “I would love to do something like that. I mean J Dilla is one of the greatest influences on me ever in my career. He is one of my greatest friends since I got to know him. I would love to pay homage to him and do that.”
