If the Tupac hologram wasn’t a strange enough representation of the late Tupac Shakur, well, here’s another one! Tupac the Musical seems to be ready to perform at the Palace Theatre on Broadway, and now there’s behind-the-scenes footage of an awkward version of “California Love” to prove it! It will most likely make you even hungrier for the Tupac movie biopic from Boyz n the Hood director, John Singleton— and not in a good way.
Hypetrak tells us about the production:
Although the musical will not be a biographical tale of Tupac, the entire storyline is inspired by his lyrics and musical works, and will instead follow a narrative that details the struggle of two friends in the Midwest. Written by Toss Kreidler and directed by Kenny Leon, the musical Holler If Ya Hear Me is set to open doors to the public on June 19 at the Palace Theatre.

Tupac was certainly theatrical, but we wonder what he would have thought of this… You can watch the behind the scenes clip from the musical and tell us what you think of the musical in the comments section below.
