Still player.

The talented ms, a good father, a great friend, Big Pun did not die from bullets killer, AIDS or overdozy heroin, and a heart attack. Death overtook him on Feb. 7, 2000. Big Pun’u was 28 years old.

As a child I heard the phrase, said about Vladimir Vysotsky “. in this country it is necessary to die in order to recognize you. “In hip-hop’s death also acts as a catalyst recognition, and sometimes contributes to deification. Look at the”sacred”Pac’a and B.I.G. No one doubts that the Guru and Rakim (continue list) deserve no less respect and attention. The trouble is that the guys are alive and”have the right to make mistakes”, and Pac and Biggi long dead, and therefore infallible. How Big Pun’u, the man of whom will be discussed today, managed not to become “sacred bogey”after his death, it is not difficult to guess. First Pan – Latinos, not an African-American. And the audience is smaller and cotton fields are not chasing. Secondly, his family (wife Lisa and their three children, Fat Joe – a close friend and ally) proved to be much more subtle and intelligent people, unlike Syurdzha Knight and Afeni Shakur, who with perseverance maniacs semiannually released another sensational posthumous album 2Rac’a. Thirdly, the very love of the bear, is a quiet,”right” character. Talented ms, a good father, a great friend, Pun did not die from bullets killer, AIDS or overdozy heroin, and a heart attack. Death overtook him on Feb. 7, 2000. Big Pun’u was 28 years old.

Christofer Lee Rios aka Big Pun born November 10, 1971 in the South Bronx (New York), the son of Puerto Ricans. The interest in hip-hop and breakdancing (yes, Ban was not always such a big guy) came from a guy in 15 years, inspired by the performances Crazy Legs and the Rock Steady Crew.

However, the name did not stick, and soon transformed into Big Punisher, in honor of comic book superhero of the famous publishing house Marvel.

In 1995, a landmark meeting occurs Big Pun’a with Fat Joe. Fat men like each other, and as they say the movie characters “Casablanca”: “great friendship begins”. Both the 120 kg weight, tough guys are so similar visually that the hip-hop community jokingly call them the twins.

The first attempt at writing, which became known to the public is becoming an underground hit “Fire Water”, recorded with Raekwon and released on the mixtape Funkmaster Flex “The Mix Tape, Vol. 1”. “The subway” boils!

In the wake of underground recognition, Fat Joe can not sign Pun’a by Loud Records. In 1998, the debut album Big Pun’a”Capital Punisment”(featuring Prodigy, Fat Joe, Wyclef, Busta Rhymes, Inspectah Deck, etc.), from which the track”Still Not A Player”permanently settled in the Top 5, and without a club remix”I’m Not a Player”no cost, no one decent party.
