Well, now his childhood apartment is up for sale and it's not all that rough anymore. It's been completely remodeled. The Brooklyn neighborhood he grew up in has also changed quite a bit.
According to real estate site Zillow, the 972 square foot three bedroom apartment is listed for $725,000. Prospective buyers can expect a sunny apartment with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and, of course, the bragging rights to say Biggie lived here.
