holler-if-you-hear-me

Kevin Leone, the same director who brought A Raisin In The Sun to Broadway, is working on a 2Pac musical for Broadway. He calls it a “unconditional love story,” and an “anti-violence story” that based on Pac’s music. It is not a autobiographical production. Casting has already begun for the play tentatively titled Holler If Ya Hear Me.

“Some people look at hip-hop and they think they hate everything black or they think they hate everything that uses profanity, or they think it’s about gun violence,” Leon said, calling Tupac a “prophet.”

“When you look at the lyrics of his music, he was always talking about universal things like honor, betrayal, family,” Leon said.
