Video: Lupe Fiasco gets his own Hologram


Cyber Entertainment is about to change the game by providing holograms to a number of artists so they can appear at various places in the world without having to be there themselves.

They start off with providing a hologram for Lupe to perform Battle Scars with Guy Sebastian. Check the video above!

  6. ^^lol oh wow

    I feel like they should only do holograms for artists who have passed on. Like the tupac hologram was epic but if I'm paying to see you live I wanna see you live

  7. I don't like it. Just gives another excuse for those who aren't talented, to make more money on a career based on faking it anyway. Pretending to play cause you cant + playback = instant false sense that they've worked hard to bring you a good show. As far those who are already dead, sure it would be great to see them again, but damn let them be dead. That's like when a company makes a "new" dead artist album and hes barely on the damn thing.

  8. Let's be honest. Our culture has brought on some pretty crappy things. What starts out as a great thing, like Facebook and Chat Roulette, become homes for things like creepy stalkers and chronic masturbaters. The Tupac hologram was cool, but pleeeeease don't abuse it. Lupe is alive, he and other living artists don't need a hologram!

  9. jeez guys get the full picture
    for eg in australia this song is MASSIVE it might be sung at various awards what if lupe cant just drop everything and fly halfway round the world for one night so...they use the hologram

    similarly and I hope lupe performs and guy is the hologram

    its freaking awesome

  10. ^yeah about as awesome as someone going to a concert to see people play, only to get some dude with a laptop pressing play. Even if its simulation, the feeling gets lost. But it might just be me.

  12. I agree -entirely missed the point of the hologram idea.

    Battle Scars works so brilliantly because Lupe and Guy are so amazing with their vocals and lyrics and the delivery of the song on cd and music video clip.

    I have always seen Guy and Lupe performing Battlescars LIVE as problematic because they live so far away from each other and there is no one else that could do each other's part justice. The song works because of their brilliant collaboration together - A hologram of Lupe for Guy to be able to perform Battle Scars in Australia is a perfect solution.

    I hope Guy does a hologram for Lupe so that they are able to perform Battle Scars the way it should be with both artists creating the magic of the song sung LIVE together.

  13. Maybe if the hologram was in real time. But most likely it will be prerecorded. Takes away the feeling knowing that. And people know. Cause the Creator will be sure to take due credit.

  14. For people who agree with the hologram idea, think of this for a moment. Although it makes things that are harder to do possible, why not try harder to make it a reality instead of a synthetic one? If we continue to have holograms replace things that are too hard, what's this going to become years from now? I would like a real, genuine live performance. You can really tell the difference.

  15. ^ Exactly. Thank you. If people want to take the easy route...well look at most (not all) pop music, you know what ends up happening.

  17. errr its just for one off occasions..

    for example guy flew for 3 full days just to perform on letterman for 5 minutes

    he may not be able to do that every time nor lupe do that everytime guy sings battle scars in australia

    where they can make the effort they will..guy is flying to USA for appearance/s of battle scars late this year
