Pick of the Day – August 31st: Big Pun – Capital Punishment

Big Pun – Capital Punishment

Look…we  (whoever is reading this and I) can argue this all day – but on some just straight up lyrics…..straight lyricism – Pun has to be one of the 2-3 nicest to ever lay a verse down to wax.  I think he’d actually destroy YOUR favorite rapper, unless you favorite rapper is Eminem (and maybe a couple more.)  This particular album was serious…serious in lyrics…..serious with the beats…..serious in length.  It was actually way too long, but at the same time, it really illustrated Pun’s depth as an emcee.

Really the video below tells you EVERYTHING you need to understand about Pun, and for that matter Fat Joe, who was never nicer after Pun passed.  I think he thrived in Pun’s essence and technical skill.  The other video is my favorite Pun track – at his best.
