Wax Figure of the Notorious B.I.G. to be Unveiled at Madame Tussauds in New York

A wax figure of slain MC The Notorious B.I.G. will be unveiled by the rapper’s mother, Voletta Wallace, at the world famous Madame Tussaud’s wax museum in New York City on October 25. The figure of Biggie portrays the rapper in a white three piece suit with white hat and shoes, with one hand in his pocket and the other on a white and wooden cane. After the unveiling, 23 students from the Brooklyn High School of the Arts will perform the Biggie tribute song “I’ll Be Missing You,” and the gospel tune “I’ll Fly Away.” Visitors will be allowed to touch and take pictures with the figure which will be housed in it’s own room on the 9th floor of the museum. Additionally, when guests move through colored light beams around the figure, they will automatically trigger audio clips of Biggie’s songs. The unveiling is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. on October 25. Madame Tussaud’s is located at 234 W. 42nd Street in Manhattan.

    What’s good? this is Sir Wil of myspace/wilpowermusicproductions and I say it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving artist. B.I.G. is one of the greatest ever R.I.P. Why do all the talented artists in hip hop die and the ones saying the same old bullshit always on the air?
