The Notorious B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace, will be honored with a street name in Brooklyn next month. The Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation made the announcement Tuesday about the upcoming celebration.
Named “Christopher Wallace Way,” Billboard reports members of Biggie’s family will be attending the special ceremony on June 10. “Christopher Wallace Way” will be at the “Fulton Street intersection between Gates Avenue on BK’s St. James Place.”
According to Billboard, the late rapper’s mother Ms. Voletta Wallace, his children, and his closet friends will attend the ceremony. The ceremony will be open to the public and will begin around noon.
News of the street name was first announced in December. Today, Tuesday, May 21, marks what would’ve been The Notorious B.I.G.’s 47th birthday.
