Big Punisher and his debut album, Capital Punishment, arrived just when Latino Americans were feeling removed from the rap scene. Much to Hip-Hop’s amazement, the man born Christopher Rios kicked in the door with a lyrical aptitude as heavy as his silhouette.

Pun is considered to be the first Latino rapper to boast serious tongue-tactics along with impeccable breath control and bar after bar of dope lyrics.

His 1998 inaugural LP Capital Punishment came equipped with a number of songs that helped shape the record into a classic (i.e. “Still Not a Player,” “Beware,” “You Ain’t a Killer”). And its impact? Bittersweetly it far exceeded Pun’s tenure in the rap game. As such, we take time to honor the timelessness of Capital Punishment by sharing a six little known facts about Pun’s debut album, which turns 16-years old today.

Rest In Peace.
