Is Biggie Too Fat To Have A Street Named After Him?
The corner of Fulton Street and St. James Place in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn may be undergoing a name change to carry the moniker of one of its most famous, former residents. A 4,000 signature petition started by Leroy McCarthy with the aim of changing the street name to Christopher Wallace Way has been blocked by some City Council members. They object on the grounds that the late rapper’s tumultuous past, frequent run ins with the law, rap lyrics and his weight make him an unfit role model. One letter from councilwoman Letitia James can make this street name change a reality, but no final decision has been made as of yet.
