2Pac - Holler If Ya Hear Me

Music video by 2Pac performing Holler If Ya Hear Me. (C) 1993 Interscope Records

"Holler If Ya Hear Me" is a song by 2Pac, from his second solo album, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.. It was the first single released from this album in 1993. The track, which uses a sample from the song "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice and Public Enemy's "Rebel Without a Pause", is an anthem of resistance. Frustrations with black poverty, police injustice, and Tupac's perceived persecution from political figure Dan Quayle fuel the majority of the track. Hustling, bearing arms, and refusal to conform are the key methods of combating said issues, and the chorus leads those listeners in agreement to join in the movement. The song is autobiographical in nature, referring to various traumas experienced by Tupac himself, and the editor of Vibe was quoted in TIME magazine as stating that the song struck a chord with a large section of disaffected youth. The song was used by Michael Eric Dyson as the title of his book about the life of Tupac Shakur. The song was also used as a title for a musical based Shakur's music, which premiered on Broadway at the Palace Theatre on May 26, 2014 and closed on July 20, 2014. The non-biographical musical, directed by Kenny Leon and starring rapper/poet Saul Williams, was also produced by Shakur's mother, Afeni Shakur. The original version of the track was released via tupac's fan base. This track has entirely different lyrics and beat but same concept.
