Ohio Artist Creates First Ever Nipsey Hussle Wax Figure
Earlier this year, an Ohio artist named Mr. Officials announced that he had created a life-size wax figure of late rapper Nipsey Hussle. The figure, which is reportedly the world’s first Nipsey Hussle wax figure, features a unique look that captures the rapper perfectly. The figure includes Nipsey’s signature tattoos, chains, stud earrings, and braided hair. The artist describes the process behind the figure’s creation.
The wax figure was created over nine months, and is currently on display at a location in Cleveland. The figure was painted on a wax figure base, and the artist added the signature jewelry and tattoos that Hussle had in his photos. The video clip of the figure’s creation shows the incredible finish that the figure has. The artist said that the figure’s custom look took him nine months to create.
Nipsey’s life will be documented in an untitled docu-series that will be produced by Marathon Films and produced by LeBron James’ media company, Springhill, and Maverick Carter. The series will include never-before-seen archival footage of Hussle, as well as exclusive interviews with his collaborators.
Nipsey’s death in 2019 has left a void in the music industry. His fans are still mourning his loss. But with his passing, his legacy lives on through his music and his followers. There are also numerous celebrities who have continued to pay tribute to Hussle since his passing.
