RIP TO BIG PUN
As you all should know by now, Big Pun is and will always be
one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE EMCEES. The fact that he passed away with only two
official albums under his wing is of no concern to me. Biggie Smalls passed
away in a similar fashion, but he is regarded as the best, with just reason.
With all due respect to The Notorious Big Poppa, I always gravitated to
Christopher Rios for some reason.
At any rate, it has been 8 LONG YEARS since the passing of
Big Pun and I couldnt resist giving him a shout out. I didnt want to put it
in the muck and mire of the rumors, so here is a video retrospective on the
late great lyrical one Big Pun.
I could be wrong for saying this, but Fat Joe and Pun bodied
the Snoop and Dr. Dre original version. Cuss me out,
say I am stupid or just listen to the wordplay. Shout out and love to Dre and Snoop no disrespect to the architects!
Banned From TV – Noreaga ft. Nature, Big Pun, Cam’ron,
OHHHHH who remembers this? MY GOD, New York had so much original talent at this
time. This is one of the best posse songs to come out in the 90s and Pun is
No. 2 right after Nature.
Still Not A Player
When I heard this, I wished I was a player to begin with so I
could denounce it like Pun.
Im Not A Player
Here is the original song. Just listen to the beat Puns
I never loved this song. It might be because Im just a
Black dude with no serious interaction with Puerto Rican brothers and sisters
until later in life. I didnt love it, but its Pun I have
to like it!
Its So Hard
This was a very hard to song to listen to. It was clear that
Pun was trying to live.
Off the Books The Beatnuts and
BIG PUN AND FAT JOE LIVE
You know the deal.
AN INTERVIEW WITH BIG PUN FROM 1999
He talks about doing a collaboration
with Biggie Smalls in heaven. Damn how ill would that have been! I think they can still do it from the Pearly Gates
With that I say to you do some homework! Go get some of
the old pun mixtapes (shoot, email me some of those
rare gems!). Like Big, Pac, Scott La Rock, Big L, Eazy
E and many more, there will never be another Big Pun. We lost a real MC right
here.BONUS SESSION!Big Pun and Cuban Link “Toe To Toe”
