Christopher Rios, better known as the rapper Big Pun passed away 18 years ago today.
In his own words: “Ay-yo my murderous rap verbal attack is actual fact/Tactical tracks match perfectly with graphical stats/Half of you lack the magical dap of tragical rap/That tackles you back and shackles and laughs at you/That’s the mathematical madness I’m on, the savage, the strong/The marriage, a bond of havoc and song.”
