Yeah, I was under the impression that it was just a recording of a performance by the guy himself (in which case I still think it wouldn't be any different from for example Queen using Freddy's recording of the Bohemian Rhapsody opera part during the Tribute Concert or any other live+recorded show) but I read now that it was all artificial and I concede it's less tasteful but still I don't see what the big deal is. They made an image of him rapping on stage, isn't that what he did during his lifetime ? If they made a porno or something like that, than yeah, outrage would make sense


Anyway, here's a couple of funny pics:

How fuckin cheap and pathetic is that? Fuckin let the man fuckin die, what a bunch of leeches and i'll include his mum Afeni in that, Makaveli clothing and umpteen fuckin substandard albums with shit beats based around throwaway single verse that Pac did and then featuring fuckin artists that Tupac probably wouldn't've pissed on if they were on fire...and Dre is the biggest fuckin snake around, by all accounts he HATED Tupac, as in despised him right from the beginning, HATED the fact that he was basically coerced into giving California Love to Pac, that song was meant to be on a never-came-to-fruition comeback album with Dre and Cube, of which Natural Born Killaz was to be a taster...U Can't C Me too, that was meant to be on that album. He even hated Pacs verse on it, California Love was meant to be a chilled out beef avoiding type track and Tupac came on there spitting his gang related shit and Dre hated him for it...and when he left Death Row well anybody whoose heard a Pac tune or two knows EXACTLY what Pac had to say about him then...and here's this fuckin idiot prancing around in the desert with a Tupac hologram 15 years after he died. Sad and sick.

Releasing notebooks that he scribbled in when he was 15 and all that, for fuckssake..



I agree. But damn, that gave me some goosebumps.

This was maybe an idea for the G N' R performance with Axl and Izzy at the HOF.

How did they make the Elvis one looks so real. They ruined that one with that lady singer. Elvis is much better than her. The Tu Pac one not sure it really looked like him. I think they probably scanned in someone for that and change the face to look similar to his. Not sure. Anyways, pretty crazy.

Yeah, I was under the impression that it was just a recording of a performance by the guy himself (in which case I still think it wouldn't be any different from for example Queen using Freddy's recording of the Bohemian Rhapsody opera part during the Tribute Concert or any other live+recorded show) but I read now that it was all artificial and I concede it's less tasteful but still I don't see what the big deal is. They made an image of him rapping on stage, isn't that what he did during his lifetime ? If they made a porno or something like that, than yeah, outrage would make sense


Well they're making a dead person speak and choosing what he says. Do you not think it's a little weird? I mean, alright, so alls he's saying is whattup Coachella but it's the principle of it. It's one thing to just have a recording of the person but then to make him speak, in the here and now, i dunno, to me there's just something slightly immoral about it. I mean, that was a real human being and people are using him post mortem to cynically make money off of him. I mean, just think how much money is made off his name every day, posthumous albums, clothing brands, books, dvds, cds, mp3, all manner of merchandising, legit and bootlegged...and then this, i mean just imagine how much money is sunk into this/made out of his name.

Now i wonder how much money of that is spent on actually trying to solve the poor cunts murder...it's sick...just goes to show you, where there's a fuckin quid to be made your mum ain't even your mum anymore. I mean no one made Freddie Mercury speak from beyond the dead, did they? I mean, no one made him come onstage and like, make statements for fucking gay rights or comment about how 9/11 horrified him. It ain't just a recording of him it's recreating him in the now, referring to things that he couldn't possibly refer to because he's dead. These people are fucking snakes.

it's disrespectful and cheap and awful deifying of someone who was a million times more interesting as a flesh and blood human being than he is as someones fucking light show. This is a person that had SOO much to say and represented SOO much for SOO many people and he's been reduced to something that you might expect to fall out of a packet of rice krispies in the early 90s.

Human beings ain't fucking chess pieces, they have feelings and minds and opinions and when they're fucking dead we should have enough respect to let them die and resign ourselves to that fact instead of going "y'know, if Pac was around, i'm pretty sure he'd be playing Coachella with Snoop and Dre, despite him hating Snoops guts.

It's like Axl dying tommorow and then next Coachella him being onstage by way of hologram with the rest of Guns and everyone going, y'know, i bet Axls looking down on us from heaven and going oh gee whizz, if only i'd've made it up with Slash before i popped my clogs, i know, lets make our estimation of his post mortem wish come true and stick em onstage together, Axl would've liked that!

Dude you know as well as do the police couldnt give a shit about Pacs murder and frankly neither do I as much as I love him. Fact is, Pac was a smart kid, educated like a motherfucker but decided he could just throw bullshit at the Bad Boy guys and act like a fucking idiot running his mouth. Talk about how you gotta premonition about dying soon, well shit you thinks gonna happen when you talk shit about everyone?

The police are fuckin scum though, they never gave a shit about nobody but as far as me or you or whatever, thats something else but fuck man, a persons loved ones?!?! I mean look at that Stephen Laurence case, his old man and his mum are like, still fighting, to this day for justice for their kid. And they ain't fuckin rich, they're just ordinary folk. And then there's this guy, famous as fuck, held up as a legend, has millions of fans that claim to love the bastard, has a family and a whole network of his people out in the fuckin world, access to tons and tons and tons of money and yet all these people wanna do is sell jeans and posters and nobody wants fuckin justice or closure for this man that was gunned down on the fuckin strip in front of scores of fuckin people, it's just crooked man. I ain't one of those fuckin nutbag internet theorists who things like...y'know, Elvis beamed down from Mars and did it, i'm just lookin' at it from a straight forward sober point of view of, OK, you got all these people with all this love for this guy...why is his murder unsolved? Why does making money off of his name and fuckin cheap shit like this, which clearly makes a lot of money for a lot of folks, take prescedent over justice for this fuckin guy whoose dead?

i would agree that this was an awesome event if this was just gunna be a one time thing as it is a pretty cool tribute to Pac (no pun intended), but the fucking hologram has a twitter account, really? that's the real insulting thing about the whole thing.


wait, really? :lol:
