Wax sculptures of Tupac “2Pac” Shakur and Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace were reunited today in honor of what would have been Tupac’s 39th birthday.
The two figures will be posed together for three months in an exhibit, which opened yesterday at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Washington, DC.
They got Tupac down pat! All the way down to his Tims…
Per press release:
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.
In case you’re wondering, the Tupac figure is on loan from Madame Tussauds museum in Vegas, while the Biggie statue is also borrowed from the museum located in Manhattan, New York.
Both statues were created with the participation and approval of Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, and B.I.G.’s mother, Voletta Wallace.
R.I.P. Tupac & Biggie…
