Tupac Musical Coming to Broadway


“Holler if Ya Hear Me,” a musical about the life of legendary rapper Tupac, is set to appear on Broadway, according to The Wall Street Journal. Pac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, has signed on to produce the musical, while veteran stage director Kenny Leon develops the story.

Leon spoke about the project, saying it will be an “unconditional love story” with an “anti-violence” message, adding, “[Tupac] was just trying to talk about life and say something about the country and being an American and raising a family here.”

The cast hasn’t been named for the show, but Leon is confident in their abilities to capture the audience’s attention, “We had to have a group that could do hip-hop dance as well as straightforward Broadway musical dance. But above all we needed actors who could tell the story.”

No theater or opening date have been set for “Holler if Ya Hear Me.”
