On Monday (June 10), The Notorious B.I.G.‘s hometown posthumously honored the late rapper by naming one of its BK streets after him. The city held a renaming ceremony to mark the special occasion as they renamed the corner of Fulton Street and St. James Place, Christopher ‘Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace Way. Thousands of Biggie fans attended the celebratory event, as well as those closest to him, including his mother Voletta Wallace, his children — daughter, T’Yanna and son, Christopher Wallace Jr. — and his close friend and fellow MC Lil’ Kim.
“I’m sure he’d use some of his saying: ‘Yo, that’s cool, Brooklyn. We did it!’ Maybe this sign and the crowds here today will show they really loved him,” Voletta told ABC7NY following the renaming ceremony.
Lil’ Kim also spoke highly of Big, telling the news station the street renaming was a part of Biggie’s dream. “He always had a vision,” she explained. “And I feel like today was part of his vision.”
