Big Pun: The Legacy Review from HHDX -

Before Big Punisher, Hispanic Hip Hop artists struggled for a fair chance in an African American-dominated marketplace. However, it was Christopher Rios' signature rapidfire flow along with his impeccable vocabulary that left jaws dropped across the industry. Pun's unparalleled talent left people scrambling for the rewind button, in order to process his seemingly never-ending rhymes. Though his life was tragically cut short almost a decade ago, Pun's charismatic larger than life persona will forever live on through his music. The Legacy: The Best Of Big Pun encompasses the elite music recorded throughout his career as a solo artist, intertwined with spoken word by Big Pun himself as well as Snoop Dogg, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah.

Chronicling Pun's artistic development leading up to his debut album, The Legacy chronologically begins with Fat Joe and Big Punisher's 1995 HOT97 "Ice Cream" freestyle. Previously only available on Funkmaster Flex's debut, the track's vintage appeal boasts a more nasal-voiced Punisher with a reference to Pun's pre-Terror Squad crew, Full A Clips. Rapidly building momentum, Big Punisher was more broadly introduced to the world on Joey Crack's Jealous One's Envy B-side "Firewater," alongside Joe's friends Raekwon and Armageddon. Followed up with The Beatnuts' "Off The Books," Pun aided his soon-to-be Loud Records label-mates in achieving their first Pop chart success.

A year later, amidst appearances on debut albums by Noreaga and Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz, Big Punisher dropped his first album, Capital Punishment.

Big Pun was one of the best mcs in the game. The movie is produced and directed well. There are a few similar products out there; this one is the most official.

RIP Big Punisher
