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.
It seems that everyone wants a piece of the reality TV pie, and the latest group to come to the table just happens to be the children of rap stars. The sons of N.W.A members, E-40, and Run DMC member, Jam Master Jay, are shopping around their own show, TMZ reports. The show—aptly titled, Seeds of Hip Hop—is set to star Dr. Dre‘s son, Curtis Young , Eric “Lil Eazy” Lynn Wright Jr., MC Ren‘s son, Anthony Dunbar, E-40′s offspring, Droop E, and Jay’s son, Jason Mizell Jr. There aren’t any solid details behind the program, but all of the men are in their 20s, and come from musical families, so that will likely have something to do with the plot. Seeds of Hip Hop is backed by a production company that’s confident that a network will snatch up the show. It could end up on VH1, BET, TV-One, or FUSE TV, which are the stations that it is being shopped to.
All of the men are looking to follow in the famous footsteps of their parents, while blazing their own trails. Young, for example, didn’t meet his father until he was an adult, but has a solid fan following, and his own label. The other men have also done things in their respective lanes, including Droop E who’s known for collaborating with his father. via:hiphopwired
