The Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum is working on bringing a memorial statue of Christopher Wallace, also known as The Notorious B.I.G, to Brooklyn, New York. Those organizing this project hope to place the statue at Putnam Triangle Plaza in Clinton Hill, close by to where the rapper grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn. The statue is six feet tall and it’s of the late legendary rapper’s face and was created by Tanda Francis who is a Brooklyn based artist.

The Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum is raising money though a funding campaign to pay for the statue’s design, the bronzing, and the process of getting approval for its installation from the community board and City Council.
