Christopher’s “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace’s latest photoshoot sold for $ 594,750 (including Sotheby’s “buyer’s premium” fees and taxes) during an auction Tuesday night, despite its original price of $ 6.

At the auction house’s first hip-hop memorabilia auction, it featured a one-of-a-kind jacket from Def Jam Recordings, a triptych of pioneering DJs painted by Fab 5 Freddy, and Judith Leiber’s crystal-encrusted bag inspired by a boombox, the crown The original buyer said they did not buy the actual platform for its gold content and encrusted jewels.

“This crown is a novel item; I bought it at a place on Broadway called Gordon’s, ”Barron Claiborne, a 52-year-old photographer living in Brooklyn, told The Post. Claiborne owned the crown and used it in the stunning Rap Pages magazine cover photo he took of Biggie in 1997. “Without Biggie, the crown wouldn’t be worth it. [six figures]. I only paid six dollars for it. “

What did Claiborne make of the fact that his crown, along with a couple of impressions from the shoot, plus a contact sheet with photographs, were opened with a quickly reached estimate of $ 200,000 to $ 300,000?

“Some people have told me it’s too low,” Claiborne stated coldly before the hammer fell. “That shows you how strong the symbol really is. I always thought Biggie was a king. “
