Kendrick Lamar: Tupac Hologram Was ‘Next Level’

Kendrick Lamar made history when he shared the stage with Dr. Dre while performing his single “The Recipe” at Coachella. While he knew about the much-talked-about Tupac Shakur hologram before the rest of the world, he didn’t expect it to take on a life of its own.

“I didn’t know it was going to be that serious,” the Compton MC told Fuse. “I should have expected, this dude is a perfectionist and he’s always taken the game to the next level, and that my friend is the next motherfu**ing level. It don’t get any better.”

After hopping offstage, he was able to enjoy the show as a fan. “I was in amazement like everybody else,” he added. “After my set, I jumped back into the crowd all the way to the back and just watched the show. That was my first time actually getting to see Dre and Snoop, Kurupt, Warren G perform. I didn’t go to the ‘Up in Smoke’ tour when I was a kid.”

The memory will last a lifetime. “I can almost assure you that nothing else probably mattered after that in the world. It’s one of them nights where you’ll remember it forever.”
