On Saturday, a hologram of fallen hip-hop icon Eazy-E joined Bone Thugs-N-Harmony for a virtual performance at the annual Rock The Bells festival at the San Manuel Amphitheater in Los Angeles, CA.
Speaking in an interview with HipHopDX, Eazy-E’s son, Eric Wright Jr. a.k.a. Lil Eazy, offered his initial thoughts upon seeing the hologram of his late father on stage. Apparently, Lil Eazy is quite happy that his father was being honored in that way.
“It was a beautiful performance, a beautiful scene of work that we put together,” Wright told HipHopDX. “I’m finally glad that my father [was honored] on stage and stood in the forefront.”
Eazy-E’s hologram is part of the continuing trend of virtual performances at festivals in hip-hop. In 2012, a hologram of Tupac Shakur appeared on stage at the annual Coachella Music Festival while a holographic image of Ol’ Dirty Bastard joined his former Wu-Tang Clansmen for a group performance at Rock The Bells this year, as well.
