Christopher Wallace — better known around Brooklyn as The Notorious B.I.G. — has compiled quite a few honors in the years since his death. Platinum albums, having an actually watchable biopic made of his life.
But one there is one thing he hasn't achieved. He's never had a street named for him.
"The story [of] Christopher Wallace continues to have a resounding influence on new generations although he passed away in 1997," the text of the petition reads. "Coming from modest beginning[s] the story of Christopher Wallace tells the story of a boy to a man accomplishing greatness, using words as his tools."
The petition is addressed to the New York City Council and Community Board 2.
