    They spent $500,000 on that hologram. Madonna has peformed with a hologram. There is a pop artist in Japan that performs via hologram only and sells out all her shows. The Black Eye Peas have performed using holograms.

    CNN had a reporter live on scene give her live report in the CNN studio hundreds of miles away via hologram

    Welcome to the future of music and the world folks

    It wasn't a hologram at all nor was it multi- dimensional. It was an optical illusion technique known as Pepper's Ghost which was first used in the 1860's.

    Basically the image is reflected off a mirror on the floor and onto a mesh screen where he was standing.

    Yet it was moving across the stage?

    Everything I read said it was a hologram.

    Wrong question. What is not so great about Tupac? The answer is very little. If you don't care much for rap then schooling you on Pac is pointless. The first thing a great rapper has to have is a good delivery. From the very first time you ever heard him on "Same Song" with Digital Underground you just heard something that was completely different from what had come out before aside from maybe Rakim.

    The second thing a great rapper has to have is lyrical creativity. Pac was fun, insightful, thuggish and many more things. Listen to "Violent" or "Trapped" or "If My Homies Call" off of his first album 2Pacaplypse Now. "Hit em Up" is probably the best diss record of all time. If you can't have a good time when "I Get Around" or "California Love" comes on then you probably don't like rap.

    It sounds cliche but Tupac Shakur was a poet. I could go on more but thought I would give you a broad answer.

    FYI that entire performance was done by computers animating his moves and that was not old Video of TuPac that was being watched it was all new movements etc

    Word is that Celebrities and those who are Famous are now being told to put exclusivly in their wills that their likeness beyond their death can not be "resurected" in these type of forms

    With this technology you could bring back anyone to perform and any way you want to and it would all seem so real

    Apparently it is not against the law at this time to do this to any dead person. There are some who expect that porn companies would use this type of technology to "resurect" any old dead celeb and make a killing of off pornographic videos and movies made with those celebs "holograms"

    scary thought huh

    I would be less offended if you just admit that hip hop ain't your thing. Atleast I would respect your opinion.

    But to diss on Tupac and what he meant to hip hop? Aw heeeellll naw dude.


    I really appreciate you as a OSU fan and fellow RJ 'preciator, but this ......this........


    fo shame :eddie:

    Tupac was very good at what he did, there's really no denying that. But the popularity of gangster rap and the idolization of criminals like Tupak Shakur has had major negative impacts on society, most notably among African American youth.

    You call him a poet, I call him a violent gang member whose influence is just part of a 20 year trend of teaching kids that being a criminal is cool, degradation of women is cool, disrespecting authority is cool, gangs are cool, drugs are cool, racism is cool (unless it's racism against blacks of course), and life should be all about money and material possessions.

    In other words, stop putting criminals on a pedestal. Shakur was a gang member, a rapist, a misogynist, and overall just a violent p.o.s. in general.
