"Spread love, it's the Brooklyn Way." Or Christopher Wallace Way, rather.
Biggie’s childhood street corner of St James Place & Fulton Street might get the commemorative treatment if LeRoy McCarthy gets his way. The Brooklyn resident started a petition to honor the legacy of the late MC. Here's the mission statement:
Christopher Wallace “Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls, Big Poppa” is a native of Brooklyn, NY, and his success through his artistic and creative lyrical wordsmith in music has influenced people around the world. This is a petition to honor Christopher Wallace with the co-naming of the corner of this childhood home at St James Place and Fulton Street in Brooklyn, NY to Christopher Wallace Way.
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.
So far, McCarthy has 441 signatures (the goal is 500). To lend your name in support, sign the petition here.
