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.
