After the ground-breaking and much talked about Tupac hologram performance at Coachella last year plans are already in the works for more holograms portraying deceased rappers like ODB and Eazy-E.

In two separate interviews with HipHopDX both Young Dirty Bastard and  Guerilla Union’s Chang Weisberg explained how holograms of YDB’s father Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E would be “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” at Rock the Bells 2013.

“Icelene [Jones] and the estate are 100 percent onboard and we’ll be releasing a joint statement very soon,” Weisberg told HipHopDX Tuesday. “I can tell you that they’re 100 percent on board and supportive as well as Cherry [Jones, Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s mother]. This has probably been the most positive experience for the entire family. That’s what’s going to separate the performance from anything that’s been done before because the family is going to be involved in the process, in the creation and the direction of this experience.”

The family of Eazy-E displayed a similar sentiment.

“Tomica, she has been one of the biggest blessings ever,” Weisberg said. “Not only has she been great working on this process, but she can relate to half the s–t I go through on a daily basis. She has become one of my new mentors.”

The support is contrary to initial conflict between the parties. Read the full gathering of information here.
