One of the greatest rappers of all time has to be be Christopher Lee Rios, aka Big Pun. Making his first appearance on Fat Joe's jealous Ones Envy album back in 1995 and then blazing numerous guest spots and albums of his own, the giant size rapper faded out into a sad early death at the tender age of of 28. He is single handily responsible for some of the greatest one liners in rap history, and made some severely underrated and high quality albums in his short time in the spotlight. Can you really ever say 'Boricua... Morena, Boricua... Morena' and not have someone instantly know what song you are talking about? Pun is an icon of my teenage years and one of my favorite artists to this very day. In honor of the 13th anniversary of his death, I am sharing my top 5 of his awesome videos after the jump. Not necessarily his best songs, just a few of my personal faves. Big Pun Rest In Peace!!!!!
