Slain rap icon Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace will be immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds New York, where a life like figure of the rapper will be unveiled on October 25.
B.I.G.’s mother Ms. Voletta Wallace will unveil the wax figure, which is a life-sized wax figure of B.I.G. in a white three-piece suite, white hat and white shoes.
The figure stands with one hand in its pocket, while the other rests on a gold and wood cane.
Madame Tussaud’s studio artists studied hundreds of photos and hours of video footage of the rapper to ensure they captured the rapper’s spirits and expressions.
Fans will be able to take photos and hug B.I.G.’s figure, which will be featured in its own room on the nine floor of Madame Tussauds.
The figure also features multicolored light beams that trigger clips of B.I.G.’s songs as fans approach.
Additionally, members of the Brooklyn High School of the Arts’ choir will honor the rapper by singing “I’ll Be Missing You” and the gospel song “I’ll Fly Away.”
Madame Tussauds New York will debut the wax figure of Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace on at 11:00 am.
