Tupac Shakur continues to inspire even after his death.

The rapper who was slain in 1997 at the age of 25 has inspired a musical “Holler If You Hear Me”. The track-titled musical isn’t a biographical account of the rapper’s life but his lyrics will help tell the story of inner-city living. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because it is, the musical is titled after a track of his 1993 album Strictly For My N.I.G.G.A.Z..

The Kenny Leon-directed production is produced by his mother, Afeni Shakur, producer Eric Gold, and Chunsoo Shin. It’ll make it’s debut on June 19 at the Palace Theatre in New York with a  preview run beginning on May 26. Vixens, will you be checking out his lyric-inspired musical?
