Had golden-throated hip-hop crooner Nate Dogg not passed as a result of multiple strokes in March of 2011, it’s a fair certainty that he would’ve made an extended appearance at the Coachella-headlining set of Compton cronies Dr. Dre and Snoop
Doggy Dogg this Sunday. Well, Dre and Snoop don’t appear to let Nate’s shuffling off this mortal coil stop them from making him an integral part of their Indio set. TMZ reports that the G-Funk dynamic duo will be using the latest in hologram technology to project Dogg’s image on the stage during the performance. “According to sources, Nate will perform several songs,” states the website.
We here at Popdust—especially those of us who have already registered our wristbands for the three-day festival—are very glad to hear about this. It’s just not a Dre and Snoop gig without That Voice singing “Eyyyyyyyy / Smoke weed every day.” Getting Ne-Yo or Trey Songz just wouldn’t have been the same.
