On June 16th 2012, which would have been Tupac Shakur‘s 41st Birthday, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Hollywood, CA unveiled the $300,000 wax figure of the iconic rapper.

With DJ Quik, Spice1, Bizzy Bone and Lazy Bone of Bone Thugs & Harmony there to celebrate, fans and media gathered on the rooftop of the famous Was Museum to  honor Tupac on his birthday.

Tupac’s life-sized wax figure was donned with a real Rolex, and painted with all of his infamous tattoos as well as the bullet wounds from his first shooting.

It was an emotional ordeal not only for the fans but also for his friends on stage; upon first seeing the figure, DJ Quik had to walk aside and take a moment out to gather his emotions.

The fans were allowed to get next to Pac and take pictures with him, some threw their arms around him, some threw up the Westside, one fan even put a blunt up to Pac’s lips.

The gathering looked just like a Pac show would have: lots of hardcore fans dancing and smoking as his music played non-stop. Dressed-up girls as well as gangsters were in attendance, people shouting “Westsiiiiiide!” and celebrating together. It really looked like a Tupac show.

Rest In Peace, Tupac Shakur.

Tupac’s figure is on display at the Wax Museum for a limited time.
