Painted by artists Jeff Henriquez and Eli Lazare, the huge portrait of the rapper was erected on a building in Queens.  

By Saturday evening, the mural was already being cleaned up: “Return of The Mac. Mural being fixed,” Cormega captioned a photo showing workers on scaffolding cleaning the piece.
