Notorious B.i.g. Waxed
Slain rapper NOTORIOUS B.I.G. has been immortalised in wax at Madame Tussauds in New York. The heavyweight star's wax double was unveiled by his mother Voletta Wallace last Thursday (25Oct07). The Brooklyn High School for the Arts choir sang Notorious B.I.G. tribute hit I'll Be Missing You at the ceremony. Wallace said, "Looking at the statue, I have a mixed feeling. I'm a little sad, a little happy. It's (waxwork) incredibly accurate... I wish it was real; I wish it was breathing." According to the museum, the statue is the largest figure currently on display at the New York Madame Tussauds. Notorious B.I.G., real name Christopher Wallace, was shot dead in March, 1997. His killer is still at large.
