That Notoriously GREATThe famous King of NY crown was just passed on to someone else at an absurd price ̵
1; over half a million dollars, which is juuust a little north of OG Street.
It’s true, the headgear that Biggie wore in her iconic last photo shoot of 1997 – which has been duplicated in print thousands of times – was just sold at a Sotheby’s auction … ultimately to a bidder who was willing to spend a good deal $ 594,750 for the cause.
Pretty bad, right? Well, maybe … keep in mind that the crown is actually made of plastic – and ended up costing kerosene, who first used it with Biggie only $ 6 off the street.
Do math … and it’s just a 10,000,000% mark in value. And all because the crown was worn by BIG – plus, the fact that it has become a fixture in pop culture.
And get this – the photo, Barron Claiborne, says the crown concept hardly happened … and it’s apparently because Diddy did not feel it at the time and reportedly said it would make Biggie look like “Burger King.” Big Poppa didn’t care though … he wore it anyway.
As they say, heavy is the head that carries the crown. And even heavier is the price tag.
