2. Big Punisher
“Dead in the middle of little Italy little did we know that we riddled some middle men who didn’t do diddly.” As if anything more needed to be said, Big Pun’s short but memorable run as the pride of BX was cut short, but it doesn’t mean that the Puerto Rican wasn’t one of the best ever. Pun’s ability to pack so many words into such little stanzas was incredible for a man his size. You can even hear him breath heavily in his later records.
