Notorious B. I. G. Statue In Brooklyn, New York, In The Works
The six-foot sculpture was going to go up to about where Biggie Smalls grew up.
Brooklyn, NY - The Hip Hop Hall Of Fame Museum is working to bring a monument of the statue of Christopher Wallace, better known as The Notorious B. I. G., Brooklyn, New York.
The organizers hope to place the statue in the Putnam Triangle Plaza in Clinton Hill, near where the late rapper grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The six feet of height, the sculpture of the legendary rapper was created by the Brooklyn-based artist Tanda Francisco, and it has been shown recently in a gallery in the town.
