AN ASTONISHING duet between Snoop Dogg and a hologram of his fellow hip-hop artist Tupac, who was gunned down in 1996, stunned music fans at Coachella last night. The video of the performance (below) has subsequently stunned YouTube users.

The footage shows Tupac giving a shout out to the Coachella crowd before going into a performance of Hail Mary, a song that Tupac never performed live and was only released after his death. Tupac, interacting with Snoop Dogg, then segues into Come With Me and Gangsta Party before disappearing into the ether.

The performance has amazed viewers. British rapper Lethal Bizzle took to Twitter to call it “incredible”, while Katy Perry tweeted: “I think I might have cried when I saw Tupac.”
