The Notorious B.I.G.’s Old Brooklyn Apartment is Now Up for Sale


The Notorious B.I.G.’s former residence is on the market. According to The New York Post, the Bad Boy rapper’s old Brooklyn apartment is up for sale for $1.7 million.

Biggie owned the apartment in 1994 — the same year he released his classic debut album Ready to Die — and lived there with his wife Faith Evans and her daughter Chyna Tahjere Griffin. The home was featured in the 2017 A&E documentary Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G.

Located in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is just blocks away from Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace Way, the Clinton Hill street named after the late rap legend. Described as a “chic artistic haven,” the apartment has been extensively renovated by its current owner, notable costume designer Caroline Duncan, who has installed a custom library, chef’s kitchen, walk-through closets, a wood-burning brick fireplace and expansive loft space.

The Fort Greene property isn’t to be confused with the Brooklyn apartment Biggie grew up in (and rapped about on Ready to Die), which sold for just under $800,000 back in 2013. The “gentrified three-bedroom home” was being rented out for $4,000 a month as recently as 2019.
