According to TMZ, Nate Dogg is set to perform alongside pals Dr. Dre and Warren G at this weekend's kickoff of the Coachella music festival in Indio, California. One problem? The rapper passed away last March. Leave it to Dre to find a solution, in this case, projecting a hologram of Dogg onto the stage, which will make it seem as though he is right there rapping with his old posse. Whether you see it as stoic tribute or macabre marketing, the stunt is sure to raise some eyebrows.

Update: A Los Angeles radio station says the festival will also feature a holographic version of the late Tupac Shakur.
