Christopher Wallace a.k.a Notorious B.I.G. has now been honoured in his hometown of Brooklyn with a street being renamed after him. The corner of Fulton Street and St. James Place in Clinton Hill has officially become “Christopher ‘Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace Way”.
“When new people come to our community, don’t get it twisted and don’t forget, we made this borough what it is today. We created this borough and Biggie Smalls created the sound track of inspiration,” said New York City Council member Laurie Cumbo.

The renaming petition was approved by the Brooklyn Community Board and Mayor Bill De Blasio last November. Christopher ‘Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace Way arrives after years of efforts to rename the street; due to the violent nature of his music, the memoriam met resistance from the city.
