We all miss Nate Dogg. The Long Beach hook master died a year ago at age 41 after several years of health problems. And if you listened to MTV News’ Sway Calloway’s Shade45 “Sway in the Morning” show on Thursday (April 12) you might have gotten a bit choked up when Warren G’s “Regulate” came on.
But the reason Sway chose that classic was because of the rumors that the big Dogg might make a return engagement this weekend at the Coachella Festival during a set from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, G and Daz Dillinger.
That on-stage combo is historic enough, but TMZ reported that Nate Dogg will join his boys for several songs in the form of a hologram. We’re not sure how that’s gonna look, but we’re wondering what you think about that virtual cameo?
Is it creepy, or kind of legit? Let us know if you are down with the virtual Nate Dogg hologram in comments below.
And peep the full Coachella lineup.
