Biggie Smalls’ childhood crib is for sale, and it’s a ritzy, $725K pad.

Biggie Smalls was just little Christopher Wallace when he lived at 226 St. James Place, apartment 3L, in Brooklyn.

Now it’s on the market. Whatever you might be expecting is probably wrong, unless you were anticipating a sunny limestone building with hardwood floors, crown moldings, granite countertops and bike storage.

And the neighborhood itself has shifted — Biggie is famously from Bed Stuy, but his hood is now known as (swankier) Clinton Hill. The biggest evolution, though, is the price: It’s on the market for $725,000.

I DON’T KNOW WHY RAPPERS FEEL THE NEED TO ‘POVERTY THEMSELVES DOWN’ TO FIT IN. STRUGGLES OCCUR IN ALL HOUSEHOLD, RICH OR POOR. JEEZ, NO WONDER HE WAS ‘BIGGIE’; HE ATE GOOD!
