While living at the residence, located in the Fort Greene neighborhood, Biggie Smalls released one of his most notable albums: “Ready to Die.” The two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex is just blocks away from the street that was named after the iconic musician. The enormity of Biggie’s legacy may be felt through the countless depictions of him in street art and murals across the city. The rapper grew up in Clinton Hill at 226 St. James Place. His childhood apartment now rents for more than $4,000 a month, The Post previously reported. (New York Post)
