Whoo Kid Tells Story Of Big Pun Pulling Out An Uzi On Him (Video)

Whoo Kid’s stories are hilarious! As we honor the late great Christopher Rios aka Big Pun today, DJ Whoo Kid speaks on a time when he damn near had to beg for his life after a situation with Big Pun.

Classic Clips: Christopher Lee Rios aka Big Pun (November 10, 1971 – February 7, 2000)

Today we remember the life of Big Punisher, the 1st Latino in hip hop to go platinum and in my eyes one of the best lyricists ever. He could destroy verses with a merciless rapid delivery like “Super Lyrical” or give you smooth quality radio joints without selling out like “Not A Player”. With all Pun’s positive attributes as emcee, his passing gives us one constant reminder, YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH! Make sure you take care of yourself and get them check up’s….

“Dead in the middle of little Italy little did he know that we riddle to middle men who didn’t do diddly” is still the greatest 4 bars ever!
