(AllHipHop News) Twelve years ago today (February 7), Bronx native and Hip-Hop icon Big Pun died of a heart attack after battling with weight issues since his youth. He was 28 years old.

In the 12 years since his death, Pun’s legacy has lived on vibrantly through his music, and a number of Hip-Hop personalities chose to show some love to the late rapper with tweets like, “R.I.P 2 MY BROTHER THE GREATEST RAPPER EVER BIG PUN!!!! WE LOVE U AND MISS U!!! BIG PUN 4EVER !!!!!”, which came from Pun’s close friend, Fat Joe.

Juelz Santana and Cory Gunz respectively tweeted, “R.I.P BIG PUN 2day makes 12 years he’s been gone an has yet to be an there will never be another!! #wordplayking #gone2soon” and “We Miss You PUN … Rest In Paradise !!!”

A number of other Hip-Hop personalities posted messages about Pun, including Chuck D, DJ Khaled, Timbaland, French Montana, Cuban Link, Mystikal, Bun B, Just Blaze, and Q-Tip.

DJ Premier showed both Pun and the late producer J Dilla love by writing “Always rememberin’ the Greatness and Legacies of Big Pun and J Dilla!” As did Just Blaze, “RIP Pun. Thank u for everything. Much indebted to you.”
