Like Almost everything the Breakfast Club on power 105 were the first ones to report that they were casting rappers for this 2pac musical! they hadn't even shot anything for it however they have gotten the green light from Pac's mother Afeni Shakur to go ahead and make this musical and take it to broadway. I appreciate the idea but what exactly would a 2pac musical be like?
When Glee Meets gangsta rap? Im not sure if i like the idea but i gotta give pac props for that shit and his family
A new Broadway musical about Tupac Shakur just overcame one MASSIVE roadblock — TMZ has learned, producers have obtained the approval of the rapper’s notoriously protective mother … who LOVES the show.
A rep for the Shakur family tells TMZ, producers personally gave Afeni Shakur a rough preview of “Holler If You Hear Me” — the new musical by black theater legend Kenny Leon, based on Tupac’s music.
According to the rep, Kenny wanted Afeni’s approval before proceeding with the show — and he GOT IT … we’re told Afeni was “ecstatic” and can’t wait for the show to premiere.
The musical isn’t about Tupac personally — it’s a fictional story about two childhood friends in a Midwestern industrial city and their extended families.
A Broadway premiere date hasn’t been set — but we’re told Leon plans to start casting next week.
