Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. have reunited for the first time in history, at Madame Tussauds in Washington, D.C. today (June 16th).
The life-like wax figures are being displayed all summer starting today, on what would have marked Tupac’s 39th birthday.
“Tupac and Biggie are widely recognized as two of the greatest Hip-Hop artists and rappers of all time,” a rep for Madame Tussauds said in a statement. “Their influence on and absence from the Hip-Hop community can still be felt today – more than a decade after their tragic deaths.”
The Tupac Shakur statue is from the Madame Tussauds wax museum in Las Vegas, while The Notorious B.I.G.’s figure is on loan from the museum in New York.
Both wax figures were created with the participation and approval of Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur and B.I.G.’s mother, Voletta Wallace.
The two wax figures are on display at Madame Tussauds’ Glamour Room, in Washington D.C.
