Snoop Dogg is one of just three rappers immortalized in Madame Tussauds’ worldwide collection of wax, which includes everyone from George Clooney to Frank Sinatra to a recently unveiled wax incarnation of Mayor Oscar Goodman.
London-based sculptors began working in October to reproduce the rapper in wax. Countless hours and hundreds of true-to-life measurements later, the handcrafted statue was completed, at a cost of $300,000.
The wax version of the Doggfather wears the living breathing Dogg’s clothes, including a jacket from the rapper’s clothing line, Rich & Infamous.
The day before he is immortalized in wax for the world to see, the notorious rapper is scheduled to be at the Hard Rock to usher in pool season ’09 at Rehab.
