Big Pun, 28

Christopher Rios, better known as Big Pun, was a member of the Terror Squad with fellow Puerto Rican rapper Fat Joe.  Pun’s 1997 hit, “I'm Not a Player,” featuring Joe, paved the way for his platinum-selling debut, Capital Punishment, the following year. Then in 2000, after years of struggling with obesity, the swift-tongue twisting lyricist died from a heart attack. (Photo: John Ricard/Retna Ltd.)
