Biggie's Crown Sells For Half A Mill


The Notorious B.I.G.'s famed King of NY crown just got sold for over half a million dollars.

The headpiece Biggie wore in his iconic final photo shoot from 1997 just got sold in a Sotheby's auction going to a bidder who was willing to spend a $594,750 for it.

The crown is actually made of plastic and cost $6 off the street.

That's a 10,000,000% markup in value because it was worn by B.I.G.

The photographer, Barron Claiborne, says the concept almost didn't happen because Diddy wasn't feeling it at the time. Big wore it anyway.
