Christopher Wallace Way

    1. LeRoy McCarthy
    2. Petition by

      LeRoy McCarthy

      Brooklyn, NY

Christopher Wallace “Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls, Big Poppa” is a native of Brooklyn, NY, and his success through his artistic and creative lyrical wordsmith in music has influenced people around the world. This is a petition to honor Christopher Wallace with the co-naming of the corner of this childhood home at St James Place and Fulton Street in Brooklyn, NY to Christopher Wallace Way.

I like this young man, because, when he came out
he came out wit the phrase, he went from ashy to classy.
Song: Sky’s The Limit
Artist: Notorious B.I.G.

Artistically during Christopher Wallace time in music he was considered the best at his craft, so much so, he was given the highest esteem by the leading Hip Hop magazine, The Source, as King of New York. Coming from modest beginnings the story of Christopher Wallace tells the story of a boy to a man accomplishing greatness, using words as his tools. The story of Christopher Wallace continues to have a resounding influence on new generations although he passed away in 1997.

Please take the time to sign the petition for Christopher Wallace Way, and ask others to sign the petition also. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Spread Love It’s The Brooklyn Way.

    1. Complex Christopher Wallace Way Interview

      This is the most complete interview I've had to date on what I am trying to accomplish with the co-naming of Christopher Wallace Way, and other locations in NYC for Hip Hop artist.

      For the past 40 yrs Hip Hop has been the voice of the youth, and NYC it's birthplace. Just like the core of NYC, Hip Hop is loud and sometimes obnoxious, but it is beautiful. Hip Hop is 40 yrs old and it has done more for the world than can be calculated, in race relations, economic impact, political influence, plus more. Hip Hop has represented NYC with pride from day one, and it deserves to be recognized by its' home in all five boroughs of NYC.
