Rapper Warren G wants to try and convince P. Diddy to turn Notorious B.I.G. into a hologram following on from the success of the late Tupac Shakur's appearance at the Coachella Festival
P. Diddy may turn Notorious B.I.G. into a hologram.
Late rapper Tupac Shakur made a return to the stage in holographic form at the Coachella festival last weekend, and now Warren G has said he wants to convince P. Diddy to invest in the technology to bring Notorious - who died at the age of 24 from gun shots to the chest in 1997 - back to virtual life to go on the road.
He told MTV News: "That would be dope for Puffy to come on and we just do one the biggest, majorest tours ever where it happens like that. He could go out and do the same thing, but it would be dope to do it together."
The suggestion comes as it was claimed it would "make sense" for Tupac to go on a world tour 16 years after his death.
Sanj Surati, Head of Music at holographic projection firm Musion, creators of the Tupac hologram used at Coachella, said: "This is obviously a historic and exciting initiative that we're all witnessing currently, and it would make sense for them to bring it to Europe and maybe take it to the rest of the world."
