And the Hip-hop legend continues to live on through his illustrious music. Produced by Afeni Shakur, Holler if Ya Hear Me is set to feature a musical number of 2Pac’s recordings.
Probable to hit Broadway in the 2013-14 theater season, Holler if Ya Hear Me boasts an original story about two childhood confidants in a fictional Midwestern, industrial city as the two struggle to bring their dreams to fruition in the face of adversity.
Director Kenny Leon tells Broadway.com:
Tupac was a prophet and I want everyone to see that. Holler if Ya Hear Me is a present-day musical using all of Tupac’s music, but Tupac is not a character in the musical.
The musical is presently being workshopped with no theater or casting announced.
Speaking of posthumous achievements…
