LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Muhammad Ali's childhood home in the Chickasaw neighborhood is now a popular place to visit, enjoy memories and pay respects to The Greatest. It's where you'll find a unique mix of people on any given day - everyone from West End residents to city and state officials, even major celebrities.

The most recent famous visitor was rapper Young Jeezy, who stopped by on Saturday while he was in town for a concert at Cole's Place.

Jeezy sat on the steps at 3302 Grand Avenue as he took a couple of photos and posted them on Instagram.

One of the photo captions reads, "He grew up in a small house in the hood, just like my self. Just goes to show you never limit yourself. You can be as Great as you wanna be!"
