The Hollywood Reporter Failed Rap History 101

Tupac Shakur didn’t die for this.

The Hollywood Reporter posted a Coachella recap early Monday morning on the duo of Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre closing out the show and the return (via hologram) of Shakur.

All of the search engines in the world must have been down (and the one staffer who knows hip-hop was asleep) because this is what “THR Staff” wrote when describing Shakur’s performance:

Tupac arrived via hologram, seamlessly — and amazingly — joining Snoop on “Come With Me,” “Hail Mary” and “Gangsta Party.”

So, Shakur not only performed for the first time in 15 years, but he dropped a new track at Coachella entitled “Come With Me.”

Oh wait … he doesn’t have a song called “Come With Me.” He has a song called “Hail Mary” that features the hook of “Come With Me.”

And that “Gangsta Party” song is actually called “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.” (Yes, THR, that’s how they spelled Amerikaz.)

If you’re looking for someone to help out with your hip-hop coverage, drop me a line.
