Hip-hop icon Notorious B.I.G’s famed NYC apartment is now officially on the market. 

According to the New York Post, the late rapper owned the Brooklyn apartment in 1994 during the release of his acclaimed Ready To Die album. 

The duplex is located in the Fort Greene neighborhood of the rapper’s native borough and features two bedrooms and two bathrooms,12-foot-high ceilings and an arched window in the living room. 

It’s located just a few blocks away from the street named after the legend and was shown in the documentary Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G.

The current owner of the apartment is costume designer Caroline Duncan, whose work includes designing ensembles for award-winning series including When They See Us and The Affair. Duncan renovated the apartment after purchasing it in 2011, adding in a custom library. 

“When I moved in, the basement was just a raw space with concrete floors,” Duncan told The Post. “I framed and put up all the walls and created a bathroom with barn wood and modern finishes, a massive walk through closet to showcase my collection of clothing and accessories, a laundry room and bedrooms.” 

“Upstairs had been carved into a series of puzzling small rooms so I did the opposite, and knocked down all the walls to create a lofted open space,” she added. “I loved the neighborhood, the proximity to Fort Greene Park, the fact that the building is on the Historic Register and had the bones of a true artist’s residence.” 

The legend’s childhood apartment, located in Clinton Hill, now rents for more than $4,000 a month
