Dr. Dre said that he wants to give the “hologram treatment”, which the late Tupac Shakur received at this years Coachella, to other deceased musical legends. He has his eyes set on Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye. When asked what he thought about the success of the Tupac hologram he said that he was “thrilled with the digital rebirth of the rap legend.” The Huffington Post reports:
Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg will beam up the Tupac hologram again for the upcoming second weekend of Coachella, but the producer and now-occasional rapper has his sight set on a couple of other big names: Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye.
