Hussein Fatal, member of Tupac Shakur's early 90's rap crew, Outlaw Immortalz (or simply Outlawz), died in a car crash on Saturday, July 11th, 2015. Fatal, whose government name was Bruce Washington Jr., was 38.
The majority of 2Pac's younger crowds (and a good majority of the older type) probably don't know or remember that the West Coast Hip-Hop legend, born Tupac Amaru Shakur, got his start in the music business as a rodie/back-up dancer for the Oakland rap group, Digital Underground...
Tupac Shakur may be gone, but he’s still winning awards. Actually, his hologram won the prestigious Titanium and Integrated Lions Award at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The event, which is a neighboring awards ceremony to the Cannes Film Festival, honors achievements in advertising/digital production.
The Tupac Shakur hologram was such a big hit at the Coachella Music Festival that talks are underway to bring it on tour with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. The Wall Street Journal reports that reps for Dre and Snoop are figuring out the logistics to bring the virtual Tupac on a proposed joint trek.
