The $6 plastic crown that The Notorious B.I.G. wore for his final photo shoot in 1997 with photographer Barron Claiborne auctioned off for an eye-popping $594,750, according to the Daily Mail.
The four-time Grammy nominee (born Christopher Wallace) was murdered, age 24, in a drive-by shooting just three days after sitting for the ‘King of New York’ cover shoot for Rap Pages.
The winner, Emily, received the plastic jeweled headwear autographed by the BK rap legend himself, along with the 36 x 40 chromogenic print of the image and the original contact sheet.
Biggie Small’s son, C. J. Wallace, from his marriage to Grammy winner Faith Evans, livestreamed the auction via Instastory and provided funny comments throughout.
