Christopher “Biggie” Wallace Courts are officially open in Brooklyn
It was recently revealed that the basketball court at Crispus Attucks Playground in Clinton Hill would be renamed in honor of The Notorious B.I.G. (despite some backlash), and as of this morning, the Christopher “Biggie” Wallace Courts are officially open. Stop by the park to see it for yourself.
Bedford-Stuyvesant councilman Robert Cornegy, who grew up in the same building as Biggie, had proposed the renaming after making a promise to Biggie’s mother that he “would do everything [he] could in [his] power to help honor [Biggie’s] legacy.” Cornegy added, “It’s not about the lyrics. It’s about his legacy … commitment and artistic contributions to the hip-hop music genre and the industry itself.”
