Back in 1998, Fat Joe was on his third studio album, Don Cartagena, and he called on Big Pun, Nas, Jadakiss and Raekwon to help him with track-seven. Joined by Mack 10, the group shot a video and the rest is history. RevoltTV recently caught up with The Chef to get his thoughts on the infamous video shoot and what it was like having all those hip hop heavyweights involved at the time.
In this latest webisode from Tony Touch, he takes us back to 1997 where a young Big Pun – heavily buzzing at the time and still months away from dropping his classic debut album – joined legendary b-boy Crazy Legs and The Beatnuts’ JuJu and Psycho Les on stage to rock a live rendition of their banger “Off The Books.”
In their third edition of their Halloween-themed series, the good folks of Cookin’ Soul mix and match some of the most memorable verses from the late great emcees and wrap their signature sounds around them. Tracklist and link down bottom.
As many of you know, February 7th was both J DIlla’s birthday and ten years to the day of Big Pun’s passing (and February 6th being Bob Marley’s birthday). With that said, Cookin’ Soul and the dopehouse pay homage to the work of the two legends on this project featuring Big Pun raps over J Dilla instrumentals. Tracklist and link down bottom.
