Those looking to put their 50-inch screen and money-green leather sofa in a place of hip-hop royalty can now live out their dreams by living in the childhood home of the late Notorious B.I.G.
Biggie once rapped about his home being a “one-room shack” in his trademark hit, “Juicy,” has been cleaned up and is back on the market for $4,000 per month.
Biggie Smalls’ former 972-square-foot apartment at 226 St. James Place in Clinton Hill has been refurbished with new floors, appliances and countertops.
The apartment, which sold in 2013 for $825,000 is being rented out by the owner, and promises to be the perfect place to store your Timbs for my hooligans in Brooklyn.
The apartment is located in Brooklyn between Gates Avenue and Fulton Street, which was renamed “Christopher ‘Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace Way” in a special ceremony earlier this month honoring the late star.
The description for the rental listing describes Biggie’s ex-home as an “Amazing three-bedroom home with additional den/office and separate dining room with best light is now available for rent in the desired neighborhood of Clinton Hill historic district.”
