Big Pun remains on the best rappers ever list to this day.Reasons for this weigh largely on his debutCapital Punishment. His commanding voice and rapid firedelivery make it clear there will never be another Big Pun. Punwas New York. His confidence on the mic made him stand outamong his contemporaries. Similarly, the production -- by acast of many – remains ever so New York loyal. The closecousins "I'm Not a Player" and "Still Not a Player,” may havebeen the hits off this album but it is packed with so many morethat show Pun’s true abilities.“Beware” and “Dream Shatterer” are great examples of BigPun at his best, dark cinematic production with just enoughroom to let him breathe fire. On “Twinz (Deep Cover)” Big Punis trading bars with his mentor Fat Joe over a remake of Dr.Dre’s classic beat. Here Pun delivers one of his most quotedverses that contains among others “Dead in the middle ofLittle Italy little did we know that we riddled some middlemenwho didn't do diddly”. There are numerous guestappearances, the best of which include afore mentioned FatJoe (on several tracks), the Roots' Black Thought on the MCshowcase "Super Lyrical," Prodigy and Inspectah Deck on"Tres Leches (Triboro Trilogy)," and an extra-insane BustaRhymes on "Parental Discretion."
