Eazy-E & Ol’ Dirty Bastard Resurrected at Rock The Bells 2013
A year after 2Pac (or technically Digital Domain Media Group, the company behind the hologram) amazed the world at Coachella, two more of hip-hop’s late legends were resurrected live on stage at Rock The Bells 2013 this past weekend.
During Bone Thugs-N-Harmony‘s set on Saturday night — what would have marked his 50th birthday — a virtual Eazy-E crip walked on stage to perform classic hits like ‘Straight Outta Compton’ and ‘Boyz-n-tha-Hood.’ The performance also marked one of Layzie Bone‘s final shows with Bone Thugs, having recently announced his departure from the group.
Then, on Sunday night, Wu-Tang Clan brought their fallen brother Ol’ Dirty Bastard back to life during their headlining performance. “Appearing” alongside his son Young Dirty Bastard, Dirt McGirt played ‘Shame On a N—a’ and ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya.’ It was only right that 20 years after they shook up the game with ‘Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),’ the clan return in full effect.
