Last Wednesday (May 15), the Brooklyn Community Board 2 voted in favor of the re-denomination of the petition of 33 to one with four abstentions. The dedication is expected to be approved by the City Council and Mayor Bill De Blasio soon.

"To honor Biggie symbolizes more than a man," McCarthy said. "It symbolizes a culture. It symbolizes a county. It symbolizes a people, and Hip Hop is all over the world".
