A street in Brooklyn was renamed for the late great rapper Christopher Wallace, better known as Notorious B.I.G. The corner of St. James Place and Fulton Street is now Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace Way.

The slain rapper's family was in attendance, including singer Faith Evans who was once married to Biggie, as he was also called.

Music was provided by Hot 97's DJ Enuff.

Notorious B.I.G. grew up on St. James Place in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Biggie, who created the mega-hits "It Was All a Dream," "Mo Money Mo Problems" and "Hypnotize" with its catchy riff "sicker than your average," was only 24 when he was killed while stopped at a red light in Los Angeles. He was it four times in a drive-by shooting.

His murder remains unsolved.
