Song of the Week: Big Pun


I really don’t need to say too much about the man this Song of the Week is dedicated to. Big Pun’s birthday was this Monday (Nov. 9th) and it’s time to pay homage. As one of the nicest, Big Pun needs to be in your conversation of one of the best MC’s of all time. Here’s just a small sampling of why. R.I.P. Big Punisher.
