Hip-hop icon Notorious B.I.G.'s childhood home in Brooklyn, New York has gone up for sale.

The apartment, located in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighbourhood now referred to as Clinton Hill, was once described by Biggie as a "one-room shack", but it has since been completely renovated into a bright, three-bedroom pad with space for an office.

The St. James Place home was placed on the property market on Monday (01Apr13) with a price tag of $725,000 (£453,125).
