Tupac and Biggie Remembered at Wax Museum

Commemorating the late Tupac Shakur‘s thirty-ninth birthday, the famed Madame Tussauds wax museum brought together the wax statues of Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. at their Washington, D.C. branch yesterday morning (June 16). This marks the first time that the replicas of the West Coast and East Coast emcees have been presented side by side.

The figures will be on display in Washington for three months and open to the general public, giving fans a chance to take photos with the statues and get a close look at the wax copies of the two hip-hop legends.

Tupac’s wax figure dons his trademark bandana, Emporio Armani underwear, sagging jeans and tattoos. Artists crafted the statue using hundreds of photos and real clothing measurements provided by Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur. Biggie’s wax interpretation is dressed in a white three piece suit and complete with signature cane and was met with the approval of Biggie’s mother, Violetta Wallace.

Fans who want to remember the fallen rappers in a state of peace and coexisting harmony may want to make a trip to our nation’s capitol before it’s too late.
