Seriously? That would really bother you? You and John were friends or something? Over reacting.

If tupac was still alive... he wouldn't of approved of this at all.
what a shame... a man fighting against the system and calling them out in his own way... now he's being used in what he was stood up against.

A hologram is projected in air
A projection needs a screen to be projected on.
If there's no screen (can be invisible though) it's a hologram.

There was no hologram, move this to the HOAX. the nation was fooled. It was just a PROJECTION. If you disagree, show me a side view of Tupac there.
Digital Domain, the company that produced the effect, told the Wall Street Journal that the holographic Shakur is a purely digital creation. "This is not found footage. This is not archival footage. This is an illusion," he said. "This is just the beginning. Dre has a massive vision for this."
Though the virtual Tupac has been widely described as a hologram, it is in fact a 2D image projected to appear as a 3D effect. To achieve this, a digital image of the Tupac animation was projected onto a reflective surface on the floor of the stage, which then bounced on to a piece of Mylar that reflects the image while appearing otherwise clear. When Snoop Dogg appeared to be rapping along with Tupac, he was standing behind the Mylar screen.
According to the paper's sources, the rappers are in the process of discussing logistics for a joint tour that would regularly feature the hologram.
