Before Biggie Smalls became a legendary rapper of the 90’s, he use to bag groceries during the summer at Key Food Market in Brooklyn, New York and now they want to show their appreciation to the late rapper.

Danielle Mastrion wants to create the mural on the side of the building “This is about his roots and not the rap icon that be became,” she said. “It will be of him as a child sitting on the steps of his brownstone, like any other kid in the neighborhood.”

The mural will only take three days to complete and both Key Food Market owner Rocky Widdi and Leroy McCarthy, who is organizing the project, are exchanging ideas on which part of Christopher Wallace’s life are they trying to portray.

Celebrating 18 years since Biggie’s death this past Monday, the mural is a way to honor him who ‘proudly represented the neighborhood’.
