Twenty-five years after his death, the legacy of the late Tupac Shakur will explored in an immersive museum experience in Los Angeles
Wake Me When I’m Free, created in collaboration with the Shakur Estate, is described as “part museum, part art installation, part sensory experience.” It will open January 21, 2022 at at The Canvas @ L.A. Live
“It is a privilege to be a part of such a monumental project,” creative director Jeremy Hodges said in a statement. “Tupac Shakur was my Malcolm [X]; he was my Martin [Luther King Jr.], and to build an experience that honors such a prolific man, cannot be summed up in words. We wanted to create a memorable experience that will inspire you to be better than when you walked in, all while leaving you with the knowledge that he was a true revolutionary spirit.”
“Tupac Shakur was without a doubt one of the most important artists of his generation, transforming culture through his music and ideas,” says the show’s executive producer, Vice Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records Steve Berman. ‘Wake Me When I’m Free’ honors Tupac’s extraordinary contributions and I know I speak for the entire Interscope and Universal Music Group family that we are so proud to be able to collaborate with our partners to bring this incredible exhibit to life.”
The iconic rapper died on September 13, 1996, six days after being shot while riding in Las Vegas with Death Row Records founder Suge Knight. Tupac was 25 years old.
