Christopher Wallace, better known as The Notorious B.I.G. is getting a namesake in the city he grew up in and loved. New York will soon have a permanent reminder of his contributions to the music industry.

Christopher Wallace was born in New York in 1972. By the time of his death in 1997, he was making huge waves in the hip-hop industry. Under the name Biggie Smalls or the Notorious B.I.G., Wallace was becoming notorious from the East Coast.

What do you think about the street being named after Wallace?

Therefore, the state of New York has decided to rename a portion of St James Place between Gates Avenue and Fulton Street to commemorate the rapper. It has been approved by the local unit government of New York City and is on its way to the city council and the mayor.

Christopher Wallace Way’ should be underway in the early months of next year. Perhaps on the 47th birthday of the rapper – 21st May 2019. LeRoy McCarthy stated: “It symbolizes a culture. It symbolizes a borough. It symbolizes a people, and hip-hop is worldwide.”
