Tinsley’s book will be published by Abrams Press.
“The Notorious B.I.G. was one of the most charismatic and talented artists of the 1990s. Born Christopher Wallace and raised in Clinton Hill/Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, Biggie lived an almost archetypal rap life: young trouble, drug dealing, guns, prison, a giant hit record, the wealth and international superstardom that came with it, then an early violent death. Biggie released his first record, Ready to Die, in 1994, when he was only 22. Less than three years later, he was killed just days before the planned release of his second record Life After Death.”
The New York Post recently reported that the apartment that Biggie owned in 1994 during the time he recorded his debut album is up for sale. The “Ready to Die” rapper shared the apartment with his wife, Bad Boy R & B singer, Faith Evans, and her daughter Chyna Tahjere Griffin. The Brooklyn home, which is located in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn will be selling for a reported $1.7 million.
