Madame Tussauds has announced that Hip-Hop star Snoop Dogg will be the latest rap icon immortalized in wax.
Deceased rappers like Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. also have their own wax figures, but Snoop Dogg is the first living Hip-Hop star to be enshrined in one of Madame Tussauds world famous wax museums.
Snoops wax figure will be fittingly unveiled on April 20, or 4/20 and will feature clothing Snoop Dogg himself donated, including a baseball jacket from his Rich & Infamous clothing line.
According to reps for Snoop Dogg, the rappers handcrafted wax statue was created in Madame Tussauds London studios at a cost of $300,000.
Madame Tussaud’s wax museum has branches in Amsterdam, Berlin, Las Vegas, New York City, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Washington, D.C.
Each year, over 30 million visitors visit Madam Tussauds, which also has wax figures of musicians like Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Elvis Presley, Shaquille ONeal and many other famous figures.
