Brooklyn is looking to honor one of its many notable famous sons: The Notorious B.I.G. There's currently a petition to rename the corner of St. James Place and Fulton Street—where Biggie's childhood home is locatedChristopher Wallace Way. Below is an excerpt from the petition:

I like this young man, because, when he came out he came out wit the phrase, he went from ashy to classy.
Song: Sky’s The Limit
Artist: Notorious B.I.G.

Artistically during Christopher Wallace time in music he was considered the best at his craft, so much so, he was given the highest esteem by the leading Hip Hop magazine, The Source, as King of New York. Coming from modest beginning the story of Christopher Wallace tells the story of a boy to a man accomplishing greatness, using words as his tools. The story Christopher Wallace continues to have a resounding influence on new generations although he passed away in 1997.

Please take the time to sign the petition for Christopher Wallace Way, and ask others to sign the petition also. Thank you for your time and consideration.
