Big Pun

I remember when I picked up the news paper and read the cover story. “Rapper Big Pun Dead” I was shocked. When I went on to read the cause of death I was saddened. When I went on to see the video of him pistol whipping his wife I was disturbed.

We find icons to never be as perfect as we’d imagine. Understanding that it is unfair for us to expect perfection from a human being we accept these flaws however numerous as the contradiction of man. Despite all these fatal flaws Big Pun was an icon in Hip Hop and the Latin Community. It’s been 8 years, so here are a few gems in my opinion.

This is the one that set it off… Rap was dare say… FUN!

    I gotta admit, I hated the Cam/Pun/No Limit/NORE era of rap. I didn’t like the production, the songs, the rhymes, any of it.

    But.

    Pun was fucking insane. Makes me wish I woulda opened my mind up a little more.

    RIP, Mr. Rios.
