Sign A Petition To Rename A Brooklyn Street After Biggie Smalls
Fresh off of renaming a Brooklyn park after the Beastie Boys’ MCA, Hip-Hop fans are fighting that good fight to honor another late B.K. icon. Christopher Wallace (aka The Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls) grew up on Fulton Street, between St. James and Cambridge Place in Clinton Hill—you’ve probably heard it in lyrics like the popular 1990 freestyle footage below.
LeRoy McCarthy, a Brooklyn local, is trying to rename the block Christopher Wallace Way. AnimalNewYork.com reported that McCarthy launched a Change.org petition, which we can all sign to immortalize one of our heroes. There are over 1,500 signatures so far, and we encourage you to jump in if you agree with this Hip-Hop landmark—long after the apartment that inspired “Juicy” was recently on the market for quite a bit more than it sounded like back in ’94.
