A mural that was the subject of controversy at
Woodbury High School in New Jersey featuring Eazy-E, Tupac Shakur, Notorious
B.I.G. and Big Punisher has finally found a home, in a popular shopping mall.
The Mural was unveiled in the Deptford Mall’s
teen center Saturday (April 5) and has been expanded to feature Aaliyah, John
Lennon and Frank Sinatra.
School officials halted the mural last year after
deeming the mural was inappropriate for the school. When students came back
after summer vacation, the mural was painted over.
Rich Strey, who painted the mural, instead took
the ideal to Darrell Edmonds, director of the Services to Overcome Drugs Among
Teenagers at New Jersey Deptford Mall location.
"Those four men spoke their mind in their
music," Strey said. "There’s nothing wrong with that."
