MUSIC ICONS TUPAC SHAKUR AND NOTORIOUS B.I.G.’S WAX FIGURES UNVEILED AT MADAME TUSSAUDS WASHINGTON D.C.
Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls (aka Notorious B.I.G.) have re-united for the first time – in wax – on Tupac’s birthday. The figures are on loan from Madame Tussauds New York for three months. During that time, fans will have the opportunity to take photos and get up close and personal with the incredibly lifelike figures.
Biggie’s figure was created from extensive research. Studio artists studied hundreds of photos and hours of video footage to create Biggie’s wax likeness, which dons a white three-piece suit, white hat and white shoes. The figure, which is standing with one hand in its pocket and the other hand resting on a gold and wood cane, garnered approval and praise from Biggie’s mother, Ms. Voletta Wallace, who has seen her son’s figure.
Tupac and Biggie are widely recognized as two of the greatest hip hop artists and rappers of all time. Their influence on and absence from the hip hop community can still be felt today – more than a decade after their tragic deaths. At Madame Tussauds Washington D.C., their figures will be displayed together for the first time in the attraction’s Glamour Room.
