Rap is starting a love affair with holograms, as witnessed by Hologram Tupac. America will always have a love affair with the Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and it’s only getting more intense, as witnessed by the upcoming biopic in which Dirt McGirt will be played by none other than Michael K. Williams. Combine the two and it suddenly makes perfect sense that a hologram O.D.B. will be appearing at Rock the Bells this year.
The announcement is an important milestone in Brooklyn’s hologram-related history, because outside of Tupac, holograms have been limited to lame-ass bustas on CNN. But since everything the O.D.B. touches becomes cool, and also full of insanity, we wouldn’t be surprised if this hologram somehow transubstantiated into a real life O.D.B. and once again started reminding us he’s the king of the block.
Sadly, the only two East Coast Rock the Bells shows are in Jersey and DC. But, now that we have the technology for an O.D.B. hologram, it’s time we demand it comes to Brooklyn. Oh, and there’s also gonna be an Eazy-E hologram, but fuck that West Coast noise. East Coast 4 lyfe.
