Big Pun Dedication

It's been 10 years since Big Pun passed, so in tribute here's a clip of Big Pun's first radio appearance on the Stretch Armstrong Show with Bobbito on August 31, 1995. As Bobbito said, this is the first time a lot of people heard Big Pun under his name Big Dog the Punisher. Fat Joe was up there premiering some of his joints from the 'Jealous one's Envy' LP and brought up Big Pun, Armeggedon, and Keith Nut. R.I.P. Big Pun.

Words from Bobbito...

"In ‘95, Fat Joe brought up Armeggedon, Keith Nut, and Big Dog The Punisher to freestyle on me and Stretch’s show. After the session, I thought in my head, “That dude Big Dog killed it!” That was the first time anyone ever heard him live, and perhaps the first time anyone ever heard of him period as he was unsigned and had never appeared on any of Fat Joe’s records yet. Two years later he was on Loud Records with a big hit “Not A Player” and went multi-plat, etc. Cool story and good memory. He had a very tough image to the public, but around me, Stretch, and Sear, who are all clowns, Pun was a bug out, liked to snap and joke around just like anyone else."
