What a great way to remember a legend!

Tuesday would have been Tupac Shakur's 44th birthday had his life not been taken at such a young age, and one current artist is such a huge 'Pac fan that she decided to recreate some of the rapper's iconic photos to celebrate his big day!

Jhené Aiko may have only been eight years old when Tupac was gunned down at age 25 in 1996, but that didn't stop his music from influencing her musical style.

The 27-year-old singer decided to honor Tupac by posing for three photos; the shot from his LP All Eyez on Me, his Becoming Clean photoshoot with David LaChapelle, and the photo that was eventually selected to be on his posthumous Greatest Hits collection.

We can't imagine a better way to celebrate your idol!

Plus, what's Jhené's favorite Tupac song?? Ch-ch-check out her cover of Keep Ya Head Up from 2014 (below)!!!

no title

Tell us how you really feel, Jada Pinkett Smith!

Last week, the 43-year-old was a guest on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show in New York where the shock jock brought up the subject of the actress' deceased friend Tupac Shakur.

In case you didn't know, the Magic Mike XXL star went to high school with the legendary rapper.

However, was there anything romantic between the two?!

It turns out…

They tried but ultimately the dynamic was all wrong!

Miz Smith dished:

"When you have two young people that have very strong feelings, but there was no physical chemistry between us at all, and it wasn't even just for me! It was him too."

In fact, the mother of two even spills the beans about a time where they tried to kiss… but it was awful!

The Gotham actress confessed:

Perez Reviews: Holler If Ya Hear Me, The Tupac Musical

What is the takeaway from Holler If Ya Hear Me, the new Tupac Shakur musical, now playing on Broadway???

We're not sure what the message of the show is - and that's not a good thing!

What we do know is that it's bleak, depressing and disappointing on so many levels.

A risky move, the creators and producers of the show decided to NOT tell the story of Tupac. Instead they told a story about gun violence and drugs that was not as effective or powerful as the Shakur songs used throughout the show.

Beautiful is beautiful because it's a real story about real emotions and experiences that we can all relate to.

Same with Motown.

Holler If Ya Hear Me, unfortunately, is trying to be a little too ambitious and feels extremely undercooked.

We didn't need a "traditional" musical about Tupac. Something bolder and braver would have been quite brilliant. An exploration on politics, race relations or a myriad of other issues (many or one) would have been much more effective.

The traditional musical NOT about Shakur that is Holler If Ya Hear Me is lacking the passion and vibrancy that Tupac had.

There is very little dancing, which shocked us.

And there's very little of everything. The set is lacking and the whole production seems like it was done on a budget.

Multimedia, video, illustrations - all that could have added so much more!

This show would have worked better in a small off-Broadway theater downtown… after a lot more workshopping and revisions!

We missed the spunk. We missed the light.

You can miss Holler If Ya Hear Me!

Tupac Shakur's Legacy Is Heading To Broadway This May! His Music & Life Inspire New Show Holler If Ya Hear Me!

Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway BabiesGIFs

tupac laughing

It has been 17 years since the influential rapper passed away but his music lives on forever, and it looks like his mother is carrying on his legacy!

A new Broadway show inspired by the late Tupac Shakur is headed to the big stage later this year!

Holler If Ya Hear Me, a musical written by Todd Kreidler, is not a biography about the rapper but instead, uses his lyrical genius to portray and create a story about inner city struggle, friendship, family, revenge, change, and hope.

The show is still in its early stages, but production is underway and they're planning on bringing the musical to life by May 26th with an official opening on June 19th at one of Broadway's largest venues, the Palace Theatre!

The production will be directed by Kenny Leon, who is also working on A Raisin in the Sun, and produced by the Dear Mama rapper's mother alongside Eric L Gold, Chunsoo Shin, and Jessica Green.

This sounds like a first for Broadway, with a show being centered around hip-hop and rap music, we think it'll bring a new culture to NYC!

They're everywhere these days and, well, WE LOVE IT! Ha, you probably saw that one coming!

Ch-ch-check out the dynamic duo's pop-tastic new track, Girlfriend (above)!

Hmmm, the song's chorus "All I need in this life of sin / Is me and my girlfriend" sounds strikingly familiar!

Probably because it's borrowed from a similarly titled Tupac Shakur song, LOLz!

Hopefully those seXXXy Swedish songstresses send holographic Tupac a royalty check, LOLz!
