Saul Williams will play the lead in the previously reported Broadway musical based on the music of the late rapper Tupac Shakur, ‘Holler If Ya Hear Me’, according to The New York Times.

As well as being a rapper himself, Williams has also acted in a number of films and TV shows, including taking the lead in 1998 film ‘Slam’, which followed the story of a rapper caught between rival gangs.

Written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Kenny Leon, the new stage show begins previews at The Palace Theatre on Broadway in New York on 29 May. More information on the show here.
