Tupac Brings Hip Hop to Broadway
The late Tupac Shakur is heading to the Broadway stage. Well, sort of.
A musical based on Tupac’s work is currently in the works. The hip-hopera is titled “Hollar If Ya Hear Me,” and will showcase some of Tupac’s best lyrical moments.
The musical will not be a show about the rapper’s life nor will it contain violence.
Instead, the show will be a love story that focuses on the rapper’s lyrics. Exploring themes of honor, family, and betrayal, the musical is sure to make some changes in the world of theatre.
Currently, there’s no actors that have been cast and directors are still searching for a theatre.
If the directors stay true to Tupac’s lyrical vision, he shouldn’t be “mad at cha.”
