Since its announcement last year, the Tupac Shakur-inspired musical, ‘Holler If Ya Hear Me,’ will be making its debut on Broadway this summer.

Originally scheduled to premiere in the 2013-2014 Broadway season, the show’s opening night is slated to take place on June 19 at the Palace Theater in New York with preview showings starting on May 26, Rolling Stone reports.

Aside from the biographical content of the program, the $8 million production will also feature the former rapper’s songs including ‘California Love,’ ‘Keep Ya Head Up,’ ‘Me Against the World’ and the song that inspired the show’s title. Unlike the biopic that is still in the works, the musical isn’t based on Tupac’s life or the incidents surrounding his death in 1996.

Instead it’s about two childhood friends from the Midwest who rise above their impoverish means to chase their dreams. Written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon, ‘Holler If Ya Hear Me’ is produced by TV producer Eric L. Gold and theater producer Shin Chun-soo as well as Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur.
