Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls are joining forces for an appearance in Washington.

Madame Tussauds is unveiling two wax figures in their likenesses today -- which happens to be Tupac's birthday.

The Tupac figure is on loan from Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. Shakur was shot to death in Vegas, in 1996. He was just 25.

The Smalls figure is on loan from Madame Tussauds New York. In 1997, the Brooklynite died at age 24 during a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles.

Their deaths became synonymous with the East Coast-West Coast rap rivalry. Both murders remain unsolved.
