1. Got $725k? You Could Buy Biggie's Former Brooklyn Apartment (GALLERY).


    Please don't kick in the door and wave the .4-4. Just kindly wipe your feet on the mat and check out the fully gentrified Clinton Hill crib (it's gleaming) where a young Christopher "Biggie Smalls" Wallace was raised. And if you have three quarters of a million dollars it can be yours.

    This, however, is not the first time Big's BK apartment (located at 226 Saint James St.) has been up for sale. A look at the property's history reveals that when it was last sold on the market in 2004 it fetched a then relatively paltry $424,866. Things done changed. The owner is smackin' it, flippin' it, and rubbin' prospective buyers down for $300k more. But that shouldn't be a problem for whichever rap-lovin' baller scoops up the space. (If an egotripland readers buys it, invite us to the house warming, yo!)

    • BK all day

      Damn! I know it probably never looked like that when Big lived there, but that's still a nice f**king apartment and got a lot of space too. Reminds me of when his mom said that his stories about "Christmas missed us" was all BS and that he was always taken very good care of.

      Possibly. Or maybe it's in an area that was severely underdeveloped 30 years ago. Many outskirt neighbourhoods in US and UK have received a makeover. I'm sure the brickwork is the same though!
