(Video) #BigPunForever: 14 Years Later, Big Pun Finally Gets A Street Sign Named After Him

Cause Latins going platinum was destined to come! In February of 2010, the Bronx Community Board ruled to deny any type of street dedication to the legendary rapper Big Pun due to his “violent” lyrics and “constant drug references.” However, just a few days after the 14th anniversary of his death on February 7th, a few BX residents took it upon themselves to create their own street dedicated to the late Christopher Rios on 163rd street and Rodgers place in the Bronx. The “Big Pun Place” street sign was put up on the same corner of Pun’s huge mural. Check it out below.
