Legendary rapper Tupac Shakur is about to be immortalized as a bronze statue. As TMZ reports, a seven foot-tall statue of the late rapper will be unveiled in Georgia this September, marking the 21st anniversary of Shakur’s death.
The new statue is based on a 13-inch model and will replace the previous statue that was claimed by Shakur’s family when the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts was sold in 2015. It’s estimated to cost a cool $500,000 and will be sculpted by artist Nijel Binns.
In addition to being immortalized as a statue, Shakur will continue to live forever on the big screen in All Eyez On Me, a biopic set to hit theaters June 16. Feast your eyes on the latest trailer here. Just this past weekend, Tupac was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by none other than Snoop Dogg.
