We got our hands on what you can expect from the brand new Tupac Shakur musical that is set to hit broadway.
According to Huffington Post:
Three new tracks from the Tupac Shakur musical, “Holler If Ya Hear Me,” have been released and are now available to stream on SoundCloud. Starring Saul Williams and directed by Kenny Leon, the Broadway musical is inspired by Tupac’s lyrics but isn’t biographical of the late rapper. Instead, it’s set in a Midwestern industrial city during present day and tells the story of two childhood friends “as they struggle to reconcile the challenges and realities of their daily lives with their hopes, dreams and ambitions.”
The new tracks, “California Love,” “Unconditional Love” and “Holler If Ya Hear Me,” are cleaned up versions of Shakur’s original music, featuring call-and-response lyrics and bluesy jams. In April the AP reported that the show will also feature “Keep Ya Head Up” and “Me Against The World.” Preview performances start next week at the Palace Theatre in New York.

According to CNN:
Justin Bieber was in serious damage control mode Sunday (June 1st) after a video of him telling a racist joke to friends surfaced.
In the video, posted to TMZ.com, the pop star, then 15, asks: “Why are black people afraid of chain saws?”
He answers his own question: “Run n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****,” he says, imitating the sound of a chain saw. Then he laughs.
TMZ reported it got the video four years ago but decided against posting it then because of Bieber’s age and because he “immediately told his friends what he did was stupid.” It was reportedly shot backstage at a promotional event.
“As a young man, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance,” Bieber, now 20, said in a statement.
Brown was thrown back behind bars because a judge ruled that Brown had violated his probation in the Rihanna case. He could have been sentenced to as much as four years.
Brown still has his D.C. assault trial looming. That should begin in the next few months.
