I wrote a piece on Biggie Smalls’ Brooklyn last year, during the release of the flick Notorious. (Biopics are better when the mother isn’t involved. The Biggie biopic that I would like would be about his mom and Tupac’s mom. That would be fascinating.) One fact that I learned that I LOVE is this: Jay-Z put up a Rocawear billboard that overlooks his high school. Would you do that? Isn’t that the best?
Here is a quotable quote: “We drive past the Catholic school and a little kid throws a rock at the bus. The Californian ducks and yells, "We shootin’?” Barrow laughs, “We are DEFINITELY in Brooklyn!”
