It won’t be about Tupac himself, but rather, it will be about the story of two childhood friends and their families growing up and struggling to fulfill their dreams in a present day industrial city.

“Holler If Ya Hear Me” was written by Todd Kreidler (“Radio Golf,” “Gem of the Ocean”), choreographed by Tony award-winning choreographer Wayne Cilento of “Wicked,” directed by Kenny Leon, and is being produced with the help of the rap legend’s mom, Afeni Shakur.
