Biggie’s Childhood Home Available for $725K


    Big news: The Clinton Hill crib where The Notorious B.I.G. spent his childhood years can be yours for $725,000. Meanwhile, the blogs are debating whether or not this area was once considered Bed Stuy, which he calls home in some of his lyrics. From our own Montrose Morris: “Long story long, the case could be made that when he was a child, in the ’60s, his street was considered to be part of Bed Stuy. However, by the time he started his career as a criminal, it was definitely called Clinton Hill. And by the time he started rapping, there was no doubt it was Clinton Hill, and he was trading on the tough Bed Stuy reputation to make himself look badder and ballsier than his neighborhood actually was.”
