2Pac performs w/ Snoop @ 2012 Coachella? {Performance} #TupacBack



Last night (04/16/2012) was the ending to this years’ Coachella Music & Arts Festival. As a shock/surprise to fans in the audience 2Pac was one of the performers. He shared the stage with Snoop. As a headline act 2Pac came back to life (via hologram) for one night to perform a few of his Death Row hits. At the end of his performance he vanished into thin air. What are your views on this?

Read Tupac’s mother’s (Afeni Shakur) reaction/views on her son’s performance: Tupac’s Mom responds to 2Pac’s 2012 Coachella performance (via. DC’s radio station WPGC 95.5).

2Pac back, 2Pac back
There’s all these b*tches screaming that 2Pac back
All eyes on me, better Picture Me Rollin’
Buying brand new rims, but them b*tches is stolen
Stranded on Death Row, Brenda having my baby
But I’m stacking my paper, I need a brand new Mercedes
They screaming 2Pac back, 2Pac back
There’s all these b*tiches screaming that 2Pac back
-#TupacBack
