Yeah- Snoop (&no doubt Jimmy Iovine) brought ‘Tupac” out on stage.cant wait to see how exactly this was done- but i think the voice could be a bit closer to the real pac esp with the amount of material there is to pull from…

I predict more MFdoom style “virtual” appearances that will save promoters money and gyp the fans. That is- of course- until we are able to have Biggie, Pac, Kurt Cobain(or Nicki Minaj?) perform in the privacy of our homes…

what other applications can u think of for this technology?

Kevin Systrom, the guy you SHOULD've been tryn meet at SxSW.

Two quick things before i let CNN take it away…
1)They REALLY were adamant-just last week- about staying indie- one more piece of proof the greats dont do it for money. (but EVERYONE has a price-lol)
2)The illest line in the whole article is the last. Think about what people need THEN create. Thats the job of the artist circa’ 2012.

The long-awaited Android version, released last week, racked up more than 1 million downloads in just 12 hours. Continue reading
