Brooklyn respects the legend.
The fans have spoken.
Days after it was reported that an iconic Brooklyn mural of The Notorious B.I.G. would be destroyed because of renovations going on with the building that resides on Bedford and Quincy, an online petition was started by members of the community in the hopes of getting the landlord to reconsider. As of today, they succeeded in doing that.
Posting to their Instagram account, Spread Art NYC announced that mural will in fact stay as-is on the side wall of the building. The large list of thank you's for making it possible were T.I. (who supposedly called on the daily for updates), the Brooklyn Nets, the Mayor of the city, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries and of course the more than 3,500 people who signed the petition.
Long live the King of Brooklyn!
