Fat Joe and Big Pun

Fat Joe Honors Big Pun on His Birthday with Letter

(AllHipHop News) Today (November 10th) Fat Joe honored Big Pun with a letter remembering the Bronx rapper, known for his quick and witty rhymes.

Christopher “Big Pun” Rios’ would have been 40 today, but just over 11 years ago at the age of 28, Big Pun succumbed to heart attack.

His death was brought on by his well known struggles with obesity.

As a Puerto Rican, Big Pun was the first Latino rapper to go platinum for a full length album and was widely known for his hit single “Don’t Wanna Be a Player” ft Joe.

While the song helped Big Pun achieve household notoriety, the rapper was well known throughout hip-hop as being one of the most talent lyricists for using multi-syllable rhymes and alliteration.

Fat Joe’s letter is as follows:

Dear Pun,

Happy Birthday my brother!
I wish you were here. We would have done it real big if you was here. I know we getting older now. We would have done it big with our families. The world is missing you. Still to this day, I haven’t heard a better rapper yet. God bless you. When the world lost you, they lost an incredible spirit, an angel. Besides just being a dope rapper, you were always the best father, and you were always the best friend a person can have. Your loyalty and just being a sincere good person is really, really missed. Right now you probably would have had like 20 platinum albums. To this day, they couldn’t catch your flow. I’m still trying to be better than you, but figured out I can’t be better than you yet. God bless you man and till we meet again. You know we’re going to see each other again.

Your twin,

Joe Crack

  • P.S Sorry for leaving your wife and kids in a homeless shelter, even though we are brothers your family’s financial situation is none of my concern

    -Joey Crack

    • Yeah! ^^^^^^ What she said!

      Really, are they? C’mon Joey, handle your biz. That’s your boy who put you on. All that street cred, private jets and Phantoms don’t mean anything if you’re not handling this. It’s because of him you are where and who you are today…I hope this is not true.

      Happy birthday Pun. We miss you.

      • If joe wants to set up money for pun’s kids, fine, but if he thinks that he’s gonna respect that bitch after she turned pun into a laughing stock he is sadly mistakened.

  • I dont think they’re homeless anymore but they where for a while, and he wouldnt help them out. Hes stiffing them out of Pun’s royalties. He claims to have nothing to do w/ that. But C’mon we all know how it works. Even if he really doesnt “have anything to do w/ puns royalties”, if Pun was really like your “brother” then u’d make sure his kids are all set at the very least. Brother my ass. Next time he speaks of Pun he should just call him a label mate or something….ex-Co-worker rather.

    Sound like hate to me why should he take care of his wife kids YEAH kids but a money hungry bitch who can never get enough money for herself. Hey Desiree did you send his wife anything? Didnt think so so please talk about what you know not what the internet said.

      Leftlane u sound like u know them. And im going by HIS interviews also not only by her story. Ur right he could’ve atleast had puns kids back. If he did they wouldnt of had to live in a shelter at all. Would ur brothers or sisters kids ever have to live in a shelter if u where rich?….now he doesnt have to take care of ANY of them at all, if thats what he choses to do then fine, but dont call Pun your brother.  

      • Because liza rios spent all of pun’s royalty checks for stupid shit instead of investing it wisely.
        she wants to be rich and wealthy like the rest, but noooooo she spent most of it, that’s her damn fault, not joe’s fault.

  • R_REAL_TALK

    It’s hard to help kids when the money has to go through their mother; anyone who has an estranged ex who is also the mother of their children, or knows anyone with an estranged baby mother should know that.

    Someone tell me how they think Joe could financially support Pun’s kids without their mother being involved? It ain’t gonna happen, when they are of an age where he can deal with them, one on one, then I am confident he will do what he can; bare in mind he has his own biological family.

    What, you think he could buy a house and give the kids and she don’t live in it and possibly lose that too?

    Live in the real world people. She’s probably already poisoned their minds against Fat Joe anyhow.
