More than 15 years after his death, Tupac Shakur was brought back to life Sunday night by Snoop Dogg.

The legendary rapper appeared in a shockingly realistic Hologram image to perform "Come With me" and "Gangsta Party" with Snoop Dogg, 40, at the star-packed Coachella music festival in Indio, Calif.

"What up, Coachella?!" the Tupac hologram asked when he appeared on stage.

The Thug Life rapper was shot and killed on Sept. 13, 1996 at the age of 25. The hologram image featured Tupac in his classic acid-wash jeans and Timberland boots.

He joined Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre in a performance of "Hail Mary." Eminem, 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa also joined Snoop Dogg on stage later in the flesh.

Tupac wasn't the only star resurrected for the performance. Snoop Dogg also paid tribute to the late Nate Dogg (who died in 2011 from complications of multiple strokes) with his image while performing "Ain't No Fun."

Tupac's hologram, however, sparked so much discussion on Twitter that it now has its own account, @hologramtupic. "I could have sworn I died with a shirt on," Hologram Tupac tweeted.

Sunday after the show, Snoop Dogg tweeted, "What y'all think? #snoopndre #Coachella"
