It is with great sadness to inform you that Hologram Tupac is no longer with us.

Writing an obituary is always an emotional experience, especially when the person who has sadly passed is such a projection of musical genius, but it is our job to offer a fitting tribute to such a shining light in hip hop.

His legacy will live on, the technology will be used to make great shows with some of his fellow late stars but, in the meantime just remember Hologram Tupac for how we knew him best.

Digital Domain Media Group, the company behind the hologram being used at this year's Coachella Festival, has filed for bankruptcy. Despite the success of Tupac's appearance and plans to launch other holograms as well as a twenty year history providing special effects for the film industry, the company can't offload their $15million debt. R.I.P. Hologram Tupac.
