Posted By on February 29, 2012

The casting has officially begun for the musical "Holler If Ya Hear Me," which is based on hip hop legend Tupac's life.

The musical is directed by Kenny Leon, who has won three Tony Awards.

"Seeking African American Male and Female rappers ages 18-35," said the post from MelCap Casting. "Additionally seeking one Caucasian actor ages 20-25 with a strong facility for rap and terrific guitar skills. Strong legit singing voices a plus for all, but not required."

The casting will take place at Pearl Studios in New York.

There is no release date for musical yet, but workshops for actors selected to star in "Holler If Ya Hear Me" will run from April 23rd until May 11th.
