3) Street Art
There is a huge variety in the street art in Brooklyn, from crudely scribbled tags to elaborately crafted and conceived wheat-paste murals that transform the sides of building into canvasses. The one thing Brooklyn street art is, though, is everywhere. This borough is a feast for the eyes. And sometimes the food tastes like shit (we're looking at you, guy who tags "backfat" everywhere!) But often times, it is a beautiful way of communicating a message to a large, public audience who might never have known what the artist was otherwise trying to tell them. And there's no better way to have commemorated the life of Biggie than the crazy, awesome murals that went up all over Bed-Stuy after his death.
