The line-up for the tenth annual Rock The Bells tour was announced on Tuesday May 14th and two names have been making more news than many of the other performers on the bill. And they’re dead. Following in the footsteps of Tupac Shakur’s virtual performance at Coachella in 2012, the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E will be taking the stage as holograms this summer. ODB will be coming out during theWu-Tang Clan’s set and Eazy-E will be keeping it gangsta with Bone Thugs N Harmony. The company responsible for the Tupac Shakur hologram, Digital Domain Media Group Inc., filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last year, so it is unclear who will be creating the ODB and Eazy-E projections. The Tupac hologram was rumored to have cost between $100,000 and $400,000 to create. Watch the performance from Coachella below.
The money isn’t the only thing Layzie Bone needs to get in order if it’s found he is the father of the child in question. Layzie Bone is married and has been for a while. The woman, who allegedly Layzie had an affair with, says she initially filed the paternity suit in October of last year. She also says she has been following up on that filing since then and hasn’t heard a response from the multi-platinum rapper. With Layzie Bone not responding to the paternity suit, the court can declare him the father of the child by default. Despite all of the legal wrangling going on about him, Layzie Bone still hasn’t responded to the court or the woman. That could hurt his pockets even more in the long run because the courts charge interest on all unpaid child support payments. Layzie Bone better hope that “Crossroads” and “1st of Da Month” money is still coming in because the courts are coming after him.
