Notorious B.I.G. also known as Biggie Smalls is a step closer to being honored in the streets where he grew up. The Brooklyn City Council has voted unanimously in favor of co-naming part of St. James Place, “Christopher Wallace Way.” The legislation now awaits Mayor de Blasio’s signature, pending his approval. The hip-hop icon was shot to death in 1997, but his music is still enjoyed around the world and he remains on the shortlist for many fans as one of the greatest rappers in history.
