Iconic rapper Tupac Shakur found new life over the weekend thanks to Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and special effects company Digital Domain, which produced a hologram of the late star for a "performance" with the two living rappers at this year's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.

The rap stars' set was the talk of the festival after Sunday night's finale, and Tupac's mother - who handles most of the slain star's affairs - has given her approval and applauded the performance.

A rep for Afeni Shakur told TMZ.com that she "was absolutely positively thrilled with Tupac's virtual performance".

It was reported early last week that Snoop's late cousin, Nate Dogg - who died in 2011 after complications from a series of strokes - would perform during the set as a hologram also, but a video tribute was staged instead.
