Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Nate Dogg Performing At Coachella From Beyond The Grave?

Fans at Coachella this weekend will be getting a very special visit from deceased rapper/crooner Nate Dogg at this years festival. Technology is allowing for a posthumous guest appearance from Nate Dogg on stage in the form of a HOLOGRAM!

Sources tell TMZ that Dr. Dre didn't want to leave Nate out of his Sunday performance -- so he's incorporating his old friend using hologram technology ... the same technology that broadcast Mariah Carey's image across Europe last year ... at 5 simultaneous concerts.

We hear an image of Nate will be projected onto the Coachella stage -- alongside Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Warren G, and Daz Dillinger -- to make it appear as though he's actually performing on stage.

According to sources, Nate will perform several songs.

The singer passed away last March -- just weeks before last year's Coachella festival.
