In Honor Of Big Pun’s Birthday, His Son Chris Rivers Hops On Super Lyrical (Audio)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Forty three years ago today (November 10), Christopher Rios was born. The Bronx, New York MC perhaps better known as Big Pun shook the world ablaze in the next 29 years. The pinnacle of Pun’s career, according to many Heads, is his solo debut, 1998’s Capital Punishment.

The platinum Terror Squad/Loud Records release (executive produced by Fat Joe) featured a number of hits, including its singles “I’m Not A Player,” “Still Not A Player,” “You Came Up,” and “Twinz (Deep Cover ’98).” However, Heads have their favorites within the 24 tracks (boasting production by RZA, Juju, Showbiz, and Domingo). One such joint that stands out to Pun’s son, Chris Rivers, is the Rockwilder-producer, Black Thought-assisted, “Super Lyrical.”

In a touching (but highly skillful) tribute, Baby Pun (as he was once known) hops on Tariq Trotter’s segment of the song, and gets super lyrical with the legendary man of honor today:
