This week, everyone seems to be buzzing about late rapper Tupac's "appearance" at Coachella as a hologram. Most people were just wowed by the surprise effect. But our acquaintance Kelly Virella (from Dominion of New York) shared quite a different point of view. She wrote: "I was a fan of his before he was killed and own a few of his CDs. (...) But Tupac also made music that epitomizes the worst of hip-hop, the gun-toting, gang-banging, woman-hating kind. I held my breath when I clicked play on the video, hoping that I’d hear some progressive Tupac. Instead I got 'Hail Mary', a song glorifying the very violence that killed him."
"I have to draw a line somewhere and that line is at resurrecting the image of a murdered man and forcing him to strut around the stage performing a song about his thirst for revenge." (full article here)
