Notorious B.I.G.’s Famed NYC Apartment Up For Sale For $1.7 Million


Notorious B.I.G.’s Famed NYC Apartment Up For Sale For $1.7 Million

The two-bedroom duplex where The Notorious B.I.G. recorded “Ready To Die” could be yours.

According to a new report by the New York Post, the two bedroom flat The Notorious B.I.G. grew up in has been put up for sale.

The martyred rapper born Christopher George Latore Wallace owned the apartment in 1994 and reportedly resided there with his wife, Faith Evans, and her daughter, Chyna Tahjere Griffin.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex located blocks away from the street that was named after the iconic New York native is being sold for $1.7 million and includes 12-foot high ceilings, arched windows, a spacious walk-in closet and a recently renovated library.

The current owner Caroline Duncan, gave the apartment a gut renovation after purchasing it in 2011.

“When I moved in, the basement was just a raw space with concrete floors,” Duncan, who is a notable costume designer told The Post. “I framed and put up all the walls and created a bathroom with barn wood and modern finishes, a massive walk through closet to showcase my collection of clothing and accessories, a laundry room and bedrooms.”

“Upstairs had been carved into a series of puzzling small rooms so I did the opposite, and knocked down all the walls to create a lofted open space,” she added. “I loved the neighborhood, the proximity to Fort Greene Park, the fact that the building is on the Historic Register and had the bones of a true artist’s residence.”

Biggie recorded his classic album “Ready To Die” in the same apartment. The home, located in the Fort Greene neighborhood was featured in the documentary “Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G.”

The news comes just a day after the BMW Tupac Was Killed In was put up for auction.

The Brooklyn legend was shot dead by a bow-tied assassin on March 9, 1997, while sitting in a green Chevy Suburban parked on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. His killer remains unknown.
