Not everyone is happy about bringing “Big Pun Back”. Over the weekend, Pun’s widow Liza Rios turned to her Facebook page and said she felt “disrespected” by Joell Ortiz’s tribute track.
A lot of people are asking how I feel bout Joell Ortiz BIG PUN is Back. Well it was a good attempt on Joell Ortiz part BUT a BIG PUN he will Never be! Found it a bit disrespectful that he would say he the next Christopher Lee Rios to say the least.. With no regard to Me and My family especially My Son PUN’S Only Son which should Be the ONLY one to Claim that BIG PUN is Back..
lke let me tell u something if Puns tourch is being passed donwn then it will be to his Son it’s His Birth right Not Joel..And the fact that he didn’t even ask to begin with to see if I was kool “Passing the tourch” is Disrespectful!! Point blank.. At the end of the Day Only how I feel matter cuz that’s My Husband My Name My Tourch to Pass!!
Joell eventually got wind of Liza’s rant and responded with the message below via his Twitter account:
Shout to Nicole, Pun’s Sister and MaMa Pun for the kind words. GOD will judge by my intentions. Im good with that. No matter how good your intentions may be there will always be some negativity if you take action. still gotta do what you feel is right.
