Charlamange Tha God awards a Brooklyn landlord named Samuel Berkowitz Donkey of the Day for planning to take down the iconic mural of Notorious B.I.G. on the corner of Bedford Avenue and Quincy Street. Berkowitz plans to take down the mural to make room for more windows on the building, increasing the rent for the building by $500. He also said people who live in the building complain about the crowds the mural brings in.
Berkowitz told DNA Info:
“Why should I keep it? I don’t even see the point of the discussion. I could demolish the building if I wanted to, I don’t need no permission from anyone except the DOB.”
The Breakfast Club also adds:
“This is when gentrification goes too far. We need elements and reminders in Brooklyn of what made the city so iconic in the first place before it’s replaced by coffee and juice shops.”
Here’s what Charlamagne had to say on the situation below…
