    Big Pun went ham on this track

  • p.dom

    Nas was on “John Blaze” as well.

  • Respect

    How do u forget Nas

  • Otis

    Don’t forget the G.O.A.T Nas!

  • Facts

    So we got the proof that wearing a du rag does not correlate with knowing shit about classic hip hop

  • I’M ONLY TELLING THE TRUTH!?!

    You guys are always proofreading shit, big deal he didn’t write Nas, i’m sure he knows he is on the song too.

    Fun fact: Nas stated in an interview that after he heard Puns verse on the track, he had to rewrite his verse.

    “You guys are always proofreading shit, big deal he didn’t write Nas, i’m sure he knows he is on the song too.”

    Who are you, his wife? There is no excuses, this is his job homie. If i wrote a write up on the 90′s Bulls and forgot to mention Ron Harper, would that be okay?

    MY FAVORITE rap song and most influencial song to me in this hip hop shit! Timing wise I was 11, heard it was blown away, studied it on and on as the years went by and this is like my Holy Grail (sneakerhead term) for me in terms of structure flow, content , delivery and visually they all killed it.

    Classic Shit!

  • I’M ONLY TELLING THE TRUTH!?!

    What up E? it is E right?

    “Who are you, his wife? There is no excuses, this is his job homie. If i wrote a write up on the 90′s Bulls and forgot to mention Ron Harper, would that be okay?”

    You are correct this is his job…. that HE gets paid for not YOU….your job is to come on here and blog……Unless that E is short for Elliot who are you to proofread someones comments that is not YOUR employee…

    Oh and by the way Ron Harper was tight on the Cavs and Clips but was ass on the Bulls the Big 3 were Jordan Pippen and Rodman, the Bulls would have still won the Chip without Ron Harper’s s studdering ass.

    I just sh sh shit on you!

    Pun intended, get it.

    This song is like the legacy of why Big Pun was one of the greatest,
    I mean to have jada and nas on there and to body them like he did is just unheard of,
    Raekwon and Fat Joe are nice too but Nas and Jada are like top 5 dead or alive.
    TO think if Pun was still alive u could only imagine how great he woulda been

  • bawse
