Holler If Ya Hear Me, the musical inspired by and set to the music and lyrics of Tupac Shakur, finally has a cast.

Leading the list is Saul Williams (poet/rapper/actor/writer), with Tonya Pinkins, Christopher Jackson, Saycon Sengbloh, Ben Thompson, John Earl Jelks, Joshua Boone and Dyllon Burnside joining him.

The show is a "non-biographical story about friendship, family, revenge, change and hope," and despite certain reports, it doesn't feature Williams as Tupac (though we're sure he'd nail that performance).

The show, which is written by Todd Kreidler and completely unrelated to the biopic director John Singleton is developing, is set to open on June 19th at the Palace Theater, with preview preceding it on May 29th.

If you're new to Williams' work, we suggest picking up any of his books or listening to his self-titled album. Watch his perform 'Telegram' without any backing:
