A fan of the late music mogul, Flocka said the hologram was used for monetary reasons.
While most seemed to be infatuated with the Tupac hologram that performed for Dr. Dre’s Coachella set, Waka Flocka thought it was a terrible idea! The rapper revealed to VIBE that he was against the idea of using holograms to resurrect the dead. “I hated it,” he said. “That sh*t wack. I don’t think they should be doing that. Cause they getting paid off a dead man’s body. You don’t know what a dead man be wanting to do.” “You gotta let that man rest in peace, he continued. “He’s a great.” (VIBE)
Coincidentally, the holographic performance did provide a spark in Pac’s record sales.
Tupac’s 1998 album “Greatest Hits” returns to the Billboard 200 for the first time since 2000, as it jumps back in at No. 129 with 4,000 copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan (a gain of 571% over the previous week). The MC’s other albums also saw gains, including “All Eyez On Me” (2,000; up 95%) and “Me Against the World” (1,000; up 53%). (Billboard)
