Image: 1598067 Big Pun remains on the best rappers ever list to this day.
Reasons for this weigh largely on his debut
Capital Punishment. His commanding voice and rapid fire
delivery make it clear there will never be another Big Pun. Pun
was New York. His confidence on the mic made him stand out
among his contemporaries. Similarly, the production -- by a
cast of many – remains ever so New York loyal. The close
cousins "I'm Not a Player" and "Still Not a Player,” may have
been the hits off this album but it is packed with so many more
that show Pun’s true abilities.
“Beware” and “Dream Shatterer” are great examples of Big
Pun at his best, dark cinematic production with just enough
room to let him breathe fire. On “Twinz (Deep Cover)” Big Pun
is trading bars with his mentor Fat Joe over a remake of Dr.
Dre’s classic beat. Here Pun delivers one of his most quoted
verses that contains among others “Dead in the middle of
Little Italy little did we know that we riddled some middlemen
who didn't do diddly”. There are numerous guest
appearances, the best of which include afore mentioned Fat
Joe (on several tracks), the Roots' Black Thought on the MC
showcase "Super Lyrical," Prodigy and Inspectah Deck on
"Tres Leches (Triboro Trilogy)," and an extra-insane Busta
Rhymes on "Parental Discretion."
