Ever since Tupac made an unexpected appearance at Coachella last year speculation has been rife as to who exactly will be the next musician to be resurrected in hologram form. For a while Jim Morrison was touted, as was Kurt Cobain, but now we have our answer and, just like the 46A, two of them have come along at once.
He may have died in 2004 but Ol' Dirty Bastard made his first appearance with the Wu-Tang Clan in many a moon at the Rock The Bells festival in California over the weekend. The hip hop collective were shy a couple of members in Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, but ODB's appearance more than made up for it, performing his hits 'Shame On A Nigga' and 'Shimmy Shimmy Ya'.
The previous day at the same festival former NWA member Eazy-E, one of the pioneering figures in East Coast hip hop, made a cameo appearance during Bone Thugz N Harmony's headline set, pumping out NWA classics 'Straight Outta Compton', 'Boyz-N-The-Hood' and 'Foe That Love of $'.
All of the above came in the wake of Tupac's headline grabbing appearance alongside Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre last year. Isn't it suitably typical of Tupac to continue to be a trend-setter, even in death?
