20 years after his death, a neighborhood in Brooklyn honored The Notorious B.I.G. with a basketball court. NYC councilman Robert Cornegy, who lived in the same building as Biggie, delivered on a promise to the rapper’s mother, and honored her son’s legacy by renaming the Brooklyn playground The Christopher Biggie Wallace Courts. Biggie’s Mother, daughter and son were all there for the ribbon cutting celebration.
