Although he passed away last spring, Nate Dogg might nonetheless make an appearance at Coachella this weekend.
TMZ reports that the rapper, who died at the age of 41, will "perform" at the music fest alongside headliners Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg as a hologram.
Dre and Snoop, who are scheduled to close out Coachella for the next two Sundays, will reportedly be accompanied on stage by Kurupt, Warren G and Daz Dillinger, and they didn't want to leave Nate Dogg out.
The hologram technology will reportedly project the deceased rapper's image onto the stage, making it seem as though he's performing along with everyone else. TMZ cites anonymous sources who say Nate Dogg's hologram will be on hand for several songs.
But before Dre and Snoop take the stage, the Black Keys will perform today with Radiohead headlining tomorrow's lineup.
Remember, Coachella is pulling double duty this year, with its first festival playing this weekend and an identical, second set of shows launching the weekend of April 20.
