The legendary rapper known as The Notorious B.I.G., or “Biggie” for short, was honored once again this morning during a street renaming ceremony in Brooklyn. The Bedstuy native - a neighborhood in Brooklyn - who was born Christopher Wallace, grew up near the corner of St. James Place and Fulton Street. As of this morning, it’s officially been renamed, “Christopher Notorious BIG Wallace Way.”
Biggie was just 24 years old when he was murdered in Los Angeles back in 1997. And while his death remains a mystery, one thing is for certain - his legend and music live on.
This past Winter, we honored the Hip Hop legend with new releases for our Notorious B.I.G. collection.
