Big Pun

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the release of Big Pun’s debut and classic album, Capital Punishment. There’s no doubting that this album set the tone for Pun’s short but legendary career. The album peaked at #5 Billboard 200 charts and #1 on the Top R&B Albums chart for two weeks, was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 1999 Grammys, and was the first Latin hip hop record to go platinum. Sadly, this album was the only album released before Pun’s untimely death. Watch an interview with Pun about the album and some music videos from Capital Punishment below.

RIP, Big Pun!
