Chris Rivers Earns Every Instrumental, From Big Pun To LOX (Audio)

When you’re constantly compared against your father, you have to make it count. Chris Rivers has massive shoes to fill as Big Pun’s son. So when the Bronx, New York heir to the family microphone takes his dad’s instrumental, it’s a sign of confidence. In a quick strike, that’s just what happens when Baby Pun (as he once went by) attacks “You Ain’t A Killer” and The L.O.X.’s “Recognize” (as the cleverly titled “You Ain’t Recognized Freestyle”). It’s fast, it’s furious, it’s breathless, and it’s nothing but bars.

Listen close, and you’ll hear just how hard it was for young Chris to come up without his dad.
