CLINTON HILL — The supermarket where the Notorious B.I.G. bagged groceries as a young man is honoring the 20th anniversary of his death with limited-edition paper bags with a custom stencil of his face.
The "Biggie Bags" will be available at the Key Food at 991 Fulton St., formerly the Met Food Supermarket, only on Thursday to commemorate the day Biggie, born Christopher Wallace, was shot to death in Los Angeles at the age of 24.
"As a tribute, a limited edition of custom-stenciled grocery bags were made for the family-owned grocery store to remember his legacy," the project's website reads.
The bags show Smalls wearing his signature crown and reads "3.9.97".
"I’m sure they’re going to be running out fast," said the supermarket's owner, Rocky Widdy, noting that customers don't have to buy anything to snag one.
“We’re not actually putting products in it; some people are taking it to frame," he added, noting that the grocery store will hand the bags out until they're all gone and wasn't sure how many they had.
The project's creators did not immediately return a request for comment Thursday morning.
