Washington: Russell Simmons is developing a Broadway hip-hop musical titled ' The Scenario .'

As per the announcement, the Tony Award-winning producer's new project will be driven by "the greatest hits from a two-decade span of hip-hop - from the 'golden age' of the mid-80s to mid-90s 'when it seemed that every new single reinvented the genre' (Rolling Stone), to the chart-topping artists at the turn of the millennium," Deadline.com reported.

The musical will feature an original story penned by hip-hop historian Dan Charnas, and Simmons will produce through his Los Angeles-based production company Def Pictures, partnered with Tony-winning Broadway producer Big Block.

The musical is scheduled for late 2016 premiere in New York City.
