OHIO-BASED ARTIST UNVEILS WAX FIGURE OF TAKEOFF
Written by Randy C on February 2, 2024
An Ohio artist has revealed the world’s very first wax figure of Takeoff, the slain member of ATL-based rap trio Migos.
Mr. Officials, an Ohio native, exhibited the making of the Takeoff wax figure, including stitching Takeoff’s hair strand-by-strand, spray painting, and adding accessories to emulate his appearance on the group’s Culture LP cover. Officials stated that even after his business closed three years ago he faced homelessness.
“This young man I’ve been working on is deceased, and yet I still feel a sense to pray for him. Praying for his soul, praying for his family, friends, and band members. That’s when it hit me: this will be the year that I take off,” he said in the video.
