In the spirit of paying homage to the late rapper and icon, Nipsey Hussle, a wax artist with the Instagram handle “@mr.officials.llc” has just made an incredible wax figure of the late rapper. The artist uploaded his work of art on his Instagram page in a clip that featured him standing next to his creation while announcing that the wax figure he made happens to be the very first in the world.
The wax figure of the rapper in a black outfit with his custom look; braided hair, long beard, tattoos, jewelry and stud earrings, was well-applauded by fans and followers of Nipsey in the post’s comment section as they admired the artist’s creativity and effort that went into the grand gesture.
Still paying tribute to the late rapper, it was revealed two weeks ago that a docuseries about the life of the late, great Nipsey Hussle is being produced by Hussle’s Marathon Films and LeBron James’ Springhill with Maverick Carter. The as-yet-untitled docuseries chronicles Hussle’s life, beginning with his years as a young boy growing up in Crenshaw and ending with the artist and activist he became in his latter years.
Interviews with more than 50 collaborators, including Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Diddy, and Nipsey’s longtime partner, Lauren London, are included in the documentary. It also includes exclusive access to Nipsey’s inner circle and never-before-seen archival footage.
