Hip hop veteran Nas has nothing but praise for the recent 2pac hologram performance. Nas said that it was fitting for Dr. Dre and Snoop to honor Pac in the way that they did.
"It makes sense that Dre and Snoop would bring him out -- they are kings in the hip-hop business, and they prove it time and time again," says Nas. "That's what it's all about. We love Tupac, the world loves Tupac, and he's one of the greatest hip-hop artists who ever lived. He deserves that, to be celebrated like that and remembered like that." (Billboard)
Nas went on to mention that he believes the use of the hologram set a new standard for hip hop shows, and demonstrates how far technology has come.
"It's a historic thing that they did it, but I think that technology will get better and we'll find new ways of doing it," he says. "I think someone had to do it first, and who better than Dre to make a hologram of Tupac? Hip-hop shows are becoming bigger and bigger by the day, and I think as times goes on, it can be done in a way where everyone's happy -- where it's not just creepy, where you don't know how you feel about it. The first time it's done, it's the first time, so that's the experience we're having. Some people don't like it, some are gonna be creeped out by it, but all of those reactions are great."
