Notorious B.I.G.’s Childhood Home For Sale
The Brooklyn apartment that reared Christopher Wallace, aka The Notorious B.I.G., is up for sale.
The home offers three bedrooms and one bathroom for a listing price of $725,000, up more than $300k when it was sold in 2004. The Clinton Hill apartment has been lived in by an elderly couple, but is a regular feature for tourists.
The rapper lived there in his formative years, before he was even named Biggie Smalls.
The listing agent didn’t think that the Hip-Hop history aspect of the home would affect the purchase.
“The tour buses that come by regularly are enough,” she told New York magazine. “I don’t really know yet what impact, if any, [Biggie's past] will have on the sale. I think it’ll be notable, but I don’t know if novelty translates to a purchase.”
She maintained that “very lovable people lived there now.”
