Madame Tussauds wax museum in Las Vegas, Nevada will immortalize rapper Tupac Shakur on Apr. 5 as part of its new “On Stage” attraction.

A wax figure capturing the famous image of a shirtless Shakur wearing a bandana and showing his tattoos joins superstars such as James Brown, Mick Jagger, Elton John, Prince and others as life-like wax statues.

Adrian Jones, general manager of Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, said the decision to immortalize Skakur came from public demand.

“We have received more requests from the public to immortalize Tupac than any other rap star,” Jones said. “It is fitting that he will be the central figure in our new ‘On Stage’ attraction, which will offer the public a new high-tech system for enjoying the music of all the stars in the attraction. We will have more information about the attraction at a later date.”

Shakur was fatally wounded in a drive-by shooting on Las Vegas’ famed “Strip” on Sept. 7, 1996. Shakur later died from his wounds. His slaying remains unsolved.
