Watch a behind-the-scenes clip from the Tupac musical Holler If Ya Hear Me

We can safely say it’s Tupac as you’ve never heard him before.

Holler If Ya Hear Me, the Broadway musical that takes Tupac’s back catalogue as raw material for its story, is due to premiere on 19 June at the Palace Theatre in New York.

To whet our appetites, the show’s producers have released this behind-the-scenes clip of the cast recording their parts (including the titular ‘Holler If Ya Hear Me’ and an slightly awkward ‘California Love’).

The musical, written by Toss Kreidler and directed by Kenny Leon, actually isn’t based on Tupac’s life, but instead uses his lyrics and music to shape a narrative about two friends based in the Midwest. More information and tickets can be found on the show’s website.

The long-awaited Tupac biopic also looks set to appear in the next year or so, helmed by Boyz In The Hood director John Singleton and featuring music by Ashanti. [via Hypetrak]
