Tupac Shakur came to life at this year’s Coachella Festival when he appeared Sunday as a surprisingly life-like hologram projected on to the stage and jumbotron screens.

During the festival’s first weekend closing set, the shirtless hip-hop legend rapped some of his best-known hits including “Hail Mary” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” with Snoop.

According to TMZ reports, the crowd went “insane” when Tupac appeared to rise from the ground and emerged standing on the stage. He stalked the stage, grabbing his crotch and doing a little Crip-walking like he probably did during his 1990s heyday. The rapper died in September 1996 after being shot multiple times by a gunman.

It’s easy to say that Tupac was the highlight of the closing set even though Dre and Snoop shared the stage with other big-name MCs such as Eminem, 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar, according to MTV reports.

It was rumored that Nate Dogg was also going to appear at Coachella as a hologram. Perhaps Dr. Dre and Snoop are saving Nate Dogg for when they repeat their Coachella finale set this Sunday, April 22.

If they’re planning another hologram visit by Pac too, that show promises to be a gangsta party for the ages.
