Jim Jones Reprises play March 24th
Harlem, New York rapper Jim Jones will launch a five-day run of his critically acclaimed play Hip Hop Monologues.
Jones will perform in five different showings, which will take place March 24-28th at the 37 Arts Theater in New York.
Hip Hop Monologues, which is produced by Damon Dash, Sony Entertainment and J Kyle's Korner Ent., originally debuted in November 2008.
The play featured Jones performing songs from his latest album Pray IV Reign in the form or a scripted story.
Hip Hop Monologues is an autobiographical telling of Jones' life, which centers around his family, fame, fortune and jealous rivals.
After advice from an elder, Jones is faced with the decision of pursuing his career or returning to life on the streets.
During the play, Jones will be backed by a live band conducted by Om’Mas Keith of SA-RA, as well as a number of professional actors.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow (March 10). Prices start at $40.
