The lifelike hologram of Tupac Shakur is still heavily talked about weeks after its appearance on stage. Now, the futuristic feature is making more news as it actually caused an increase in the late rapper's record sales!
According to Billboard.biz, a few of Pac's albums as well as a couple of singles put up some rather surprising numbers since the unveiling of the hologram.
