The landlord of this building is going to destroy this mural so he can chop up the apartments into small cubicles for an extra $500 in rent per month. He even bragged that he can destroy the entire building if he wants to all he has to answer to is the DOB.
Wow. That's the narrative in neighborhoods like Bed Stuy, destroy what good was already there for a cheap, puny, soulless model.
This mural is a history marker, it is on a corner where Biggie used to hang out. Biggie wasn't just another rapper, anyone who appreciates music knows that. But, some people don't care about the rich history that surrounds us. So folks, stop by the corner of Bedford and Quincy before this mural is replaced by the blank space of gentrification.
