big-pun

On the 15-year anniversary of Big Punisher’s debut album and most celebrated work, Capital Punishment, MTV News dug into their archives and pulled an amazing profile on the rapper. With an intro by MTV veteran Kurt Loader, Pun talks about the success of his project and inspirations for pursuing rap music. Another Viacom OG, Serena Altschul, profiles the rapper’s rise and gets to the bottom of his weight gain. Nostalgic but it’s bittersweet to watch this clip. Capital Punishment is a classic in my book. Rest In Peace Christopher Rios.
