Tupac back w/ Snoop?! Check it out Coachella 2012

Courtesy of LA Times:

It’s tempting to say up front that Tupac Shakur stole the show on Sunday night when his likeness appeared alongside Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre to cap off the first weekend of Coachella, but that would just be for a cheap laugh. Making a “cameo” as a hologram projected onto the stage and the jumbo screens above, the late Los Angeles rap icon was the least dynamic of the parade of rappers young and old who held the mike.

But in his defense, he was just a hologram.

Already in the set, Dr. Dre, who put Los Angeles rap on the map in the late 1980s when he and his peers in N.W.A burst out of Compton to help invent gangsta rap, had stood alongside his one-time protege Snoop Dogg (nee Snoop Doggy Dogg) to offer sing-along anthem after sing-along anthem, each one a 1990s ode to Southern California living and rapped in unison by tens of thousands.

Nate Dogg’s Memorial Service

Snoop Dogg's tattoo honoring Nate Dogg on his left forearm.

Saturday March 26th at 10 pst the late crooner Nate Dogg’s memorial service was held in Long Beach, California at Queen Mary Dome. The friends and family of Nate Dogg came in to pay respects and love for their beloved Nate Dogg.

Nate Dogg passed away from presumed complications from his stroke he suffered in 2008. It was definitely a major surprise for his family and friends since he had been okay and gained his memory and was talking.

It was definitely a shocker to the hip hop community and myself as a West Coast rap fan. He will be missed dearly and like Nate said in his song “Nobody does it Better.”

RIP NATE DOGG!

Here are some photos from the memorial service on Saturday. ( It actually was aired live through Snoop Dogg’s Ustream channel)

IN MEMORY OF NATE DOGG:

To forever remember Nate Dogg, Snoop Dogg got a tattoo of Nate on his left forearm, with the caption “All Doggs Go To Heaven.”
