2Pac’s music will be featured in a new Broadway musical titled, Holler If Ya Hear Me. Kenny Leon has been working closely with Pac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, and will start casting the production in New York on March 10th. This is a casting call for all African American male and female rappers aged between 18-35. The story will be inspired by his music, but will not be an autobiographical account of his life. Kenny said,
“I always thought that Tupac was a prophet and I thought if everyone could hear his words and hear his stories, they would see what I see. So a year from now hopefully you’ll be seeing this world-changing musical on the Broadway stage. I couldn’t be more excited.”
I couldn’t be more excited either. I just hope they do justice to ‘KING’s Best Rapper Of All Time’.
