When we first learned that there was going to be a Broadway musical featuring the music of 2Pac, we wondered who would be playing the man himself. Not long after, we learned that in fact nobody would play 2Pac, as the musical is not a biographical look at his life, instead bringing his songs and lyrics to the stage as part of a larger story.

The musical, written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Kenny Leon stars musician/poet/actor Saul Williams and follows two friends their struggles to survive in a Midwest town. It opens to the public on June 19 at the Palace Theatre, and Entertainment Weekly have revealed a short clip of the cast performing some songs from the show as a preview. Check it out above.
