Featuring deceased icons of American music from the 1930’s to today, resurrected with the only life like high definition hologram technology, made famous by bringing Tupac Shakur back to Coachella and Michael Jackson back to the Billboard Awards. The show will surprise Chief Keef fans as he presents his musical influences, including the jazz and R&B he heard as a kid, right up to the impact of Shakur, Biggie Smalls, and Gangsta Rap.  Among many others, NWA and Snoop Dogg make appearances in the show.

The tour is sponsored by  Swissx, which will make CBD oil infused chocolates available at the theater aiming to take the audience to a whole new level of immersive intensity. Swissx CBD oil is the leader in great tasting, powerful, legal highs--with no THC content, and the purest product available. (More info at Swissx.com.)

Chief Keef and Alki David first began collaborating on the production of the long awaited double album Bang 3, and faced down Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the police chief of Chicago together when they shut down a Keef’s hologram peace concert--an act the Washington Post called an egregious violation of Constitutional free speech rights.  Now, David has completed production of one of Keef’s most ambitious albums yet, the autobiographical concept album The Cozart, which wil release simultaneously with the tour debut. The first single, Chi-raq is a stunning ode to Keef's mother and granmother in Chicago. The ballad sees the rapper to the piano, a musical departure that will delight and shock fans.

“London is a great place for fans to appreciate the magic of this hip hop hologram musical,” said Alki David, CEO of Hologram USA and Cheif Keef’s label FilmOn Music. “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.”

Alki David produced the documentary Straight from the Streets in 2000, featuring early interviews and performances by Snoop Dogg, NWA, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and politician Maxine Waters. Since then he and his companies created an entire network devoted to Battle Rap and worked with artists such as Bone Thugs n Harmony, Akon, George Clinton, Chaka Khan, the estates of Billie Holiday, Whitney Houston, Jackie Wilson, Bernie Mac and many more.

The Chief Keef Icons of American Music Hologram Tour will travel to Chicago, Illinois after the London dates, kicking off a multi city tour with stops in New York City, Foxwoods, CT, New Orleans, Las Vegas and more to be announced. The tour will culminate in an open ended run at the Hologram USA Theater, the only permanent hologram-powered theater in the U.S., on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Hologram USA has partnered with the Sony Pictures, Universal Studios, the House of Dior, Disney/ABC, Anheuser Busch and the Universal Music Group to create hologram events all over the world, including  using live telepresence to “beam” Jimmy Kimmel, Florida Georgia Line, The Band Perry, Jack Black,  Julian Assange and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
