Biggie’s spirit and demeanor, as well as his physical likeness.

Visitors to Madame Tussaud’s will be allowed to snap photos with
Biggie’s figure, which will be housed in its own room. Guests can use
parts of their body to break moving multi-colored light beams to
trigger clips of Biggie’s songs to play, as they approach the figure.
