As long as they don't ever get rid of the "crack is wack" playground in Harlem I've got no beef with anyone (yo).

Today's society is too soft and cry over anything, and would allow certain individuals to get a free pass, unconditionally. We see this everyday and becoming more common. To a point where it becomes hypocritical. Good point, good rapper with a tone of voice and lyrics (you may not agree with what he was advocating), but not a person to look up too if you want to create a decent society.

Why is this even news it was there for just 2 years. It'd be one think if this was done shortly after his death.

A lot of you don't understand.

1. Whether you say he shouldn't be looked up to or not he is an icon. There's tons of icons now that have sketchy histories that people adore. David Bowie had a sketchy history of being a pedophile and people worship him.

2. It's the fact that the neighborhood is changing and this is just pissing people off more.. for people to say "oh it's only been 2 years" so what? they want it to be there forever.

3. Ya'll really don't understand it and it's pretty sad. Look at the 5 points mural.. these people are savages and will ruin NYC culture whether it be new or old.

1. F*** Dave Bowie too! I never understood Celebrity culture. A great book to read is "Listen Little Man!"

2. Again the owner of building has final say. Puff Daddy is worth 700 billion. Why don't you reach to him and have him pay the 1200 monthly that the landlord is asking. Would you be down to pay that to keep Biggie up?

3. Graffiti is not culture. The savages were those artists vandalize private property.

Graffiti is by definition not permanent.
