Big Pun’s Abusive Past: Son Chris Rivers Explains Fact From Fiction With "Fear Of My Crown"

Chris Rivers talks to Chuck "Jigsaw" Creekmur about the true legacy of his father, the late Big Pun.

(AllHipHop Features) Big Pun remains one of the finest lyricists that Hip-Hop has ever produced and there is nothing that can change that. However, the Bronx native had another side to his persona that was hidden from the public. Pun, real name Christopher Rios, was an abusive husband and father, a fact that has been far more difficult for rap fans to process. That reality has not affected fans nearly as much as it has Pun’s wife and children that lived with this reality until his untimely passing in February 2000.

Over the years, Pun has been exalted by his family and the legacy continues through his children, two of which rap. Chris Rivers has led the charge. But, the son of Pun recently caused a storm of controversy surrounding his new song "Fear My Crown,” which depicts heinous abuse in several forms. His father, the late Big Pun has been implicated (and in the eye’s of some, condemned him) in the video for the song. Some have cried foul and others to praise the young rapper for speaking such a frank truth about a topic readily lied about.

AllHipHop’s Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur talks to Chris “Dragon” Rivers about the whole thing and then some.
