Hip-hop fans searching for a place to live, look no further. Notorious B.I.G.’s childhood home is currently available to rent in Brooklyn. As Brooklyn Vegan points out, the late legend’s 972-square-foot Clinton Hill apartment is up for grabs at a steal of $4,000 a month.
Although Biggie called it a “shack” in his hit single “Juicy”, the space has since been refurbished with new floors, appliances, and countertops.
“It’s so calm and residential now,” real estate agent Fabienne Lecole told the New York Post, “It’s hard to imagine it’s the same street that he sang about with all the drugs and gunfire. It couldn’t be more different.”
Here’s the full listing via Compass:
