Brooklyn basketball court renamed to honor Biggie Smalls

A Brooklyn basketball court was renamed after B.I.G

The Crispus Attucks Playground in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, New York, now contains the Christopher “Biggie” Wallace Courts, named after late rapper Notorious B.I.G. 

The renaming took place during a ceremony at the park earlier today (Aug. 2). This fulfills a promise City Councilman Robert Cornegy made to Biggie's mom, Voletta Wallace, that he would honor her son.

Biggie frequently visited those courts before becoming a famous rapper.
The playground itself is named for Crispus Attucks, a black man who was killed in the Boston Massacre and considered the first casualty of the American Revolution.
