EDITORS’ NOTES

Big Pun never grew as notorious as he should have: Capital Punishment was the Bronx icon’s only album released during his lifetime. Still, the Puerto Rican MC had the slickest tongue on the East Coast for a spell. Don’t let the flirty piano-bop of “Still Not a Player” fool you: Capital Punishment is an absolute clinic in technique (look no further than “The Dream Shatterer”). For all his hardcore appeal, Pun never neglected the party people, deftly balancing accessibility and aggression.
