Tupac takes Broadway
The hip hop community is committed to keeping the spirit of Tupac alive - after buzz about a biopic on him started spreading, a new musical inspired by his music is coming to Broadway.
"Holler if Ya Hear Me" isn't just a musical biography about Tupac's life events. According to XXL magazine, the $8 million show is about "friendship, family, revenge, change and hope," and involves inner-city characters and their constant struggles. With Tupac's own mother, Afeni Shakur, on board as a producer, you can bet that this production will have authentic aspects that speak to the rapper's work. "Me Against the World," "Keep Ya Head Up," and "California Love" are just a few of the tracks audiences will hear performed on stage.
According to HipHopDX, opening night is May 26 at the Palace Theater.
