Plus, other family members and the rapper’s close friends will be there too. “Honoring Biggie symbolizes more than just one man. It symbolizes a culture. It symbolizes a borough. It symbolizes a people, and hip-hop is worldwide,” said advocate LeRoy McCarthy in November, who led the name change.

Some, however, weren’t so open to the idea and opposed it because of the profanity in the rapper’s music. According to Billboard, the ceremony will be open to the public and should begin around noon. In 2017 The Notorious B.I.G also had newly renovated basketball courts named after him. The courts are located in the Crispus Attucks Playground on Fulton and Classon Avenue in Brooklyn, where Biggie played as a child. Today that area is known as the Christopher “Biggie” Wallace Courts.
