Big Pun

Born Christopher Lee Rios in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents, Big Pun was one of the first Latino artists to truly break through to the hip hop mainstream. Ranked #19 on The Source's 50 Greatest Lyricists of All Time, Pun frequently included references to his Puerto Rican upbringing. Morbidly obese for most of his life, Pun died in 2000 of a heart attack, at age 28.
