February 20, 2019

The Brooklyn intersection where rapper Notorious BIG grew up will soon be called Christopher Wallace Way. Billboard reports that the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation announced Tuesday--which would've been Biggie's 47th birthday--that the borough's St. James Place will be formally renamed near its intersection with Gates Avenue in a ceremony on June 10. Several members of Biggie's family--including his children and his mother, Voletta Wallace--are expected to attend.
