This is a very controversial move.
Chief Keef is planning to bring a hologram of himself and his biggest musical influences to the stage in a never before seen hologram show.
The 'Love Sosa' rapper previously held a similar show in Chicago back in 2015 using a hologram of himself however according to reports, the event was shut down after just one song.
The 22-year-old, who is banned from performing in both London and his hometown Chicago for legal reasons, is clearly not letting that stop him.
Speaking to Billboard, he said: “Police and the mayor wanted to stop my hologram show in Chicago. F*ck Rahm Emanuel, I’m bringing it anyway. First up, London."
In a bid to promote his upcoming project “The Cozart,” Keef’s taking to the stage with holograms of the late Biggie, Tupac and living legends NWA and Snoop Dogg.
Coming to London on 31st August and 1st September, each show will be 90 minutes long and will be hosted by billionaire and Hologram USA CEO, Alki David.
Speaking about the show, David said: “We’ve advanced everything that can be done in the new medium of hologram shows. Anything you think you know about them—we’ve surpassed it. And you’ll see Chief Keef at the peak of his powers, both as a performer and a creator.”

This is not the first time that someone has used a hologram of Tupac.
Back in 2012, Snoop used one of the 'California Love' rapper during his controversial Coachella set.
Following the announcement by Chief Keef, fans took Twitter to express their surprise.
