The Notorious B.I.G.'s Childhood Apartment For Sale
For three quarters of a million dollars, a buyer could own the apartment that helped inspire "Juicy."
The Notorious B.I.G. rapped a great deal about his childhood, most notably on hits like 1994's "Juicy" and the posthumously-released "Sky's The Limit." Now, the public is able to own a piece of Biggie Smalls history. The late rapper's Clinton Hills, Brooklyn apartment 3L on 226 St. James Place is on the market. The area was formerly known as Bedford-Stuyvesant, as New York magazine reports.
Reportedly inhabitated by an older couple at present, the $725,000 asking price is up $300,000 from the published sale figures nine years ago.
"The tour buses that come by regularly are enough," listing agent Judith Leif told The Daily Intelligencer. "I don't really know yet what impact, if any, [The Notorious B.I.G's connection] will have on the sale. I think it'll be notable, but I don't know if novelty translates to a purchase."
The property remains on the market.
