When it comes to the wax replica of himself, Lil Wayne isn’t holding back.
The musician responded to the attempt to capture his likeness after a photo of the “6 Foot 7 Foot” rapper’s wax figure at the Hollywood Wax Museum in Tennessee went viral.

The ‘A Milli’ rapper, shirtless, holding a white button-down shirt behind his back, and sporting plaid trousers are depicted in the monument grinning broadly.
He gave this direct answer as the image is circulating on social media once more. It was originally posted in a TikTok video in June 2022. Fans at the time shared their candid thoughts after viewing the picture.
“This looks like a bunch of rappers…not so much Lil Wayne,” one person wrote. Another added, “It’s so general. It’s everyone yet no one.” Meanwhile, a third user noted, “They had the right idea…but the outcome.”
The Grammy winner’s comments came only one day after another celebrity, Dwayne Johnson, weighed in on his wax replica, weighing in after a museum in Paris presented a figure of him that he remarked was lacking a few key elements, such as skin tone.
“For the record, I’m going to have my team reach out to our friends at Grevin Museum, in Paris France so we can work at ‘updating’ my wax figure here with some important details and improvements, starting with my skin color,” he wrote, in part, in an Oct. 22 Instagram post, “And next time I’m in Paris, I’ll stop in and have a drink with myself.”

In response to the Game Plan actor’s comments, the Grévin Museum told Deadline that the figure will be updated, telling them, “Dwayne Johnson is right and we noticed it and will obviously remedy it as quickly as possible and send him new photos once completed.”
