Dre asked Afeni for hologram & donates to The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation

Tupac's famously protective mother Afeni Shakur agrees with the rest of the planet -- the rapper's resurrection at Coachella this weekend ... in the form of an incredibly lifelike hologram ... was mind-blowingly awesome.

A rep for Afeni tells TMZ, she was absolutely positively THRILLED with Tupac's virtual performance -- when he appeared alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg during the headlining show at Coachella last night ... walking back and forth across the stage like he was actually present.

Afeni didn't attend the performance -- but we're told she watched it unfold live on the Internet ... but while it was thrilling, the entire experience was bittersweet.

The rep says Dr. Dre asked Afeni for approval to incorporate Pac into his performance -- and she said yes. As a thank you, we're told Dre made a donation to the rapper's charity ... The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.

TMZ also spoke with Dre's crewmate Daz Dillinger -- who tells us, Nate Dogg was originally supposed to appear as a hologram as well, but the decision was made at the last minute not to use him. Nate got a video tribute instead.

  1. RIP DETOX today will be the last day/time I google "dr dre detox"

  2. Dr dre is the greatest producer of hip hop period in his prime

    But all good things come to an end the dre we once knew can never be again just a moment in history!!

    Dr dre is not as good as he once was everyone knows it he knows it everyone else around him knows it
    Just its better to keep the mystery the hype of how great he is but everyone know he fell of a long time ago
    he still has a great producer ear but no drive left in him to scared to do anything without attaching another producer name
    to blame if he fails. What can we expect he is 47 years old. Just let him live of his past thats all he has musically. Left

    If detox does come out it should fail for all the years he waited and let the fans hopes down

    Uzee you did an awesome job with the blog but just let it go even you deep down know dres a let down
