The museum, located just blocks away from the famed Barclays Center in Brooklyn, stands as a testament to Biggie’s enduring influence and impact on hip-hop culture. Curated by the Atlanta based creative agency AK-08 Collaboration, a creative experiential marketing collective, and lead Brooklyn Artist / Designer Greg “Rich Bizarre” Simmons, “The Biggie Experience” features eight interactive exhibits that offer guests a journey down memory lane. The Exhibit Build Out and Design was lead by Rich Bizarre— the man behind some amazing art installations we all may be familiar with. Within 1 month, T’yanna Wallace’s store, formally known as ‘Notoriouss’ in the heart of Brooklyn, was completely transformed into what we now can enjoy as “The Biggie Experience”.

For T’yanna Wallace, “The Biggie Experience” is not just a museum; it’s a tribute to her father’s enduring legacy. Through her clothing line, Notoriouss, she has kept her dad’s memory alive for over a decade, and with this new venture, The Notorious B.I.G. will continue to remain timeless.

Reflecting on her inspiration for the museum, T’yanna shared, “I started the museum because I want my dad’s fans as well as people who aren’t as familiar with who he is to REALLY get to know ‘BIGGIE’ on a musical & personal level by having access to an intimate experience. Reading about him on paper is cool, but a visual museum would make people want to connect in person.”
