Wu-Tang Clan unveil Ol' Dirty Bastard hologram – watch Wu Tang Clan Tickets

The rapper, who died in 2004, was digitally resurrected at a US festival

Wu Tang Clan have unveiled a hologram of Ol' Dirty Bastard at a festival in Los Angeles – watch it above.

Wu-Tang were playing at the Rock The Bells festival in California on Sunday (September 8). Flanked by most of the crew (as Fact point out, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah were absent), the ODB hologram appeared to rap through his classic tracks 'Shame On A Nigga' and 'Shimmy Shimmy Ya'.

Earlier on in the festival, Bone-Thugz-N-Harmony’s headline set the night before (Saturday, September 7) featured a cameo appearance from the late NWA member Eazy-E. A hologram of the deceased rapper was brought onstage by Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony to perform verses from NWA's 'Straight Outta Compton', 'Boyz-N-The-Hood' and 'Foe That Love Of $' – watch footage of it below.

Meanwhile, an ODB biopic is currently in the works. Titled Dirty White Boy, the film is set to star Michael K Williams - who played Omar Little in The Wire – as the late rapper, who passed away in 2004 due to a drugs overdose. The movie will tell the story of Jarred Weisfeld, a manager and former VH1 intern who worked alongside the rapper. It will be directed by Joaquin Baca-Asay. Lars Knudsen, Jay Van Hoy and Tod Hagopian will produce. "This felt to us like Risky Business and 8 Mile, with equal elements of darkness, humor, and humanity," said Knudsen and Van Hoy.
