People around this part of Brooklyn continue to congregate in this unique establishment. It is a place where time seems to freeze, and all outside stress can melt away with a cold drink, a friendly face to talk to, and a delicious Mefuneket made by the one and only Moti.
Fort Greene's Dekalb Avenue has always maintained a dual personality: a bustling commercial strip on one hand; far enough off the beaten path (aka a subway line) to feel remote, on the other.
"Ready to Die" is a multifaceted masterpiece, but its driving force is Biggie's supplication for America to recognize a young black man wrought with the fear and rage of existing in a life rooted in continuing stagnation.
