WATCH: Rare Chadwick Boseman Footage Singing in Tupac Musical
Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman has unfortunately passed away from colon cancer last August 28 at age 43.
Although Boseman never got to be on Broadway, theater director Kenny Leon tweeted footage of Boseman performing the lead role during a workshop of the musical, Holler If Ya Hear Me. In the video, he performs the song I Ain’t Mad at Cha with co-star Christopher Jackson. The show is a jukebox musical written by Todd Kreidler featuring the rap music of Tupac Shakur.

Holler If Ya Hear Me follows a non-biographical story about friendship, family, revenge, change, and hope. Inner city lives struggle for peace against the daily challenges they face in the production, and audiences are given a window into realities of the streets still relevant today.
The world mourns his loss, especially the black community in America with his significant contributions to black culture.
