    Fans of Big Pun probably know that the emcee's entire mainstream career was kickstarted by Fat Joe. Making his commercial debut on Joe's Jealous Ones Envy way back in 1995, the New York emcee was put on the fast track to success, coming out the gate with a platinum major label debut, Capital Punishment, a few years later in 1998. Now, it appears that Joe, the man arguably responsible for Pun's success, isn't willing to share any of profits he's earned off of his protege.

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
