Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, found the moment to be "thrilling."
Tupac Shakur made a cameo appearance last night at Coachella 2012 during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s set, showing up in the form of a hologram to perform “Hail Mary” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.”
According to TMZ, Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, was “positively thrilled” about his virtual appearance during the show. She was not in attendance, but instead watched it on the Internet. For Afeni, the moment was “thrilling,” yet “bittersweet.”
Prior to the show, Dr. Dre asked Afeni for her approval and she said yes. In exchange for allowing his likeness to be used, Dre made a donation to The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.
