Album Review

A documentary soundtrack, The Legacy: The Best of Big Pun is also a suitable sampler of the rapper many considered would be the rightful heir to Biggie's throne if a heart attack hadn't ended his life in 2000 at the age of 28. Pun's attraction is akin to Biggie's — a vicious mouth with economical rhymes and knockout punch lines — but he adds Fat Joe's swift delivery to the mix. His signature inhale prepares the listener for the machine-gun fire to follow, and despite tipping the scales at over 600 pounds, he's more than willing to explain his prowess with the ladies, and in graphic detail. Singles like the thugging "I'm Not a Player" and the Latin-flavored "100%" display his fine taste in hooks, and late-night horror shows like "Leather Face" can make you shake in your boots.

The first solo Latino rapper to go platinum, Big Punisher was also yet another member of the hip-hop community to fall victim to an early death -- though in his case, it was due to health problems, not violence. In contrast to his large frame, Big Pun was a surprisingly graceful and nimble rapper, delivering his often clever, tongue-twisting rhymes at a torrential pace. Big Pun was born Christopher Rios on November 10, 1971, and grew up in the South Bronx's Puerto Rican community. He endured a rough...
