#TBT: Big Pun
Big Pun, a.k.a. Christopher Lee Rios, passed away of a heart attack at age 28, leaving behind three children and a legacy as a prolific MC and a torch-bearer for Latinos in the rap community. The Bronx rapper got his start in 1989, but didn't appear on many records until Fat Joe's Jealous One's Envy in 1995. His flow was top-tier in a time when hip hop was lyrically genius, and Pun held his own alongside Big L, Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, and the other greats from the era.

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.
