Tupac Shakur just won’t stay dead.

Although gunned down nearly 20 years ago, the rapper lives on.

In 2013, at the California outdoor music festival Coachella, hip-hop superstars Dr. Dre and Eminem made headlines by performing along with a hologram (although Gizmodo.com claims it was simply CGI) of the famous MC. And this summer, the successful biopic Straight Outta Compton also resurrected the rapper with a performance by Marcc Rose.

Now, just in time for Halloween, Rose is performing at the Caprice Nightclub in Vancouver as Tupac Shakur.

According to a media release, “Rose has received significant attention for his role in the film based on his uncanny likeness to late rap legend Tupac Shakur. Upon this success, Rose has recently announced his collaboration in an upcoming biopic of the late rapper. Vancouverites will have the chance to experience the revival of Tupac during the Caprice’s Halloween Hip Hop Resurrection event happening Friday, Oct. 30.”

The Caprice is located at 967 Granville Street. Doors open at 10 pm. Early bird tickets start at $15 and are available at capricenightclub.com.
