Big Pun

Big Pun (November 10, 1971 - February 7, 2000) was a Puerto Rican rapper who emerged from the underground rap scene in the Bronx in the late 1990s. He appeared on albums from Raekwon, the Beatnuts[?] and Fat Joe and eventually signed to Loud Records[?]. After an advertising blitz, "I'm Not a Player" was an underground hit. His full length debut followed in 1998, Capital Punishment[?]. With a group of Latino rappers, Big Pun formed the Terror Squad[?] before dying of a heart attack (at 700 lbs). A posthumous album, Yeeeah Baby[?] came out a few weeks after his death in 2000.
