In the midst of Dilla month long tributes here at Beats of All-Nations, let us not forget hip hop’s other fallen soldiers. Its hard to believe that its been fourteen years since we lost Big Pun. We chose the music from the interlude “Rain and Sun” from Capitol Punishment, cause its always been quite a special track where Pun admits he’s no singer and a friend encourages him to move forward with the feeling.
You can really feel Pun on the track and the video for “It’s So Hard” (below) on his follow up album, released shortly after his death in 2000, is the perfect tribute to the Nuyorqueño.
We miss you Pun!
