In 2014, an unofficial Big Pun street sign was placed on East 163rd Street and Rogers Place in the Bronx. The street sign, which was purchased and installed by a fan of the rapper, was ultimately removed.

New York has several streets named after rappers, including Malik ‘Phife Dawg’ Taylor Way in Queens, Robert “PH” Diaz Way in Brooklyn, and Hip Hop Boulevard in the Bronx..
