A lot of rappers came from Brooklyn, but that borough will always belong to The Notorious B.I.G.
And it’s time to make it official.
The folks at Complex found a new, cool petition to rename the corner of St. James Place and Fulton Street Christopher Wallace Way, after the one-and-only Notorious B.I.G.
St. James Place and Fulton Street is the infamous corner that Biggie was raised on. Coming up, that was a pretty bad neighborhood, but now that’s actually prime real estate.
Here’s some deets from the petition:
“Christopher Wallace “Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls, Big Poppa” is a native of Brooklyn, NY, and his success through his artistic and creative lyrical wordsmith in music has influenced people around the world. This is a petition to honor Christopher Wallace with the co-naming of the corner of this childhood home at St James Place and Fulton Street in Brooklyn, NY to Christopher Wallace Way.”
You convinced? Sign the thing, B.
