Tupac Shakur is one of the most celebrated legends in the history of hip-hop, and his untimely passing away shook the world. Now, the rapper’s legacy is being immortalized in the form of an immersive museum experience.
The Shakur Estate has announced the opening a new fully-immersive museum experience based on the rapper’s life, which will be coming to Los Angeles in 2022.
Titled “Tupac Shakur. Wake Me When I’m Free,” the exhibit with feature Shakur’s music, poetry, as well as never before seen artifacts. The exhibit will be housed in a 20,000 square foot curated space.
In a press release, the Shakur Estate claimed that the exhibit will guide fans “through a myriad of surround sound spaces, rich with rarities embedded in technology,” which will allow them to “delve into the greater meaning of his activism, music, and revolutionary art.”
The exhibit has been curated by Nwaka Onwusa and Jeremy Hodges, and will only run for a limited period. Pre-sale tickets will be available on November 9, and general tickets on November 12. This is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity for any hip-hop fan. We’ll have to see what they do with this idea, but never forget that there is a Tupac hologram out there just waiting to break out again.
