Today (Nov. 10th) marks Big Pun’s 44th birthday. As many of his most notable tracks will get more spins on your FM dial than usual today and he will get shout-outs via Twitter and Instagram for being one of the best lyricists in hip-hop, no one will remember the Bronx emcee more than his wife and children.
Pun’s 21-year-old son Christopher Rivers took to his Instagram to send his father up in heaven a heartfelt message.
“The impact you left on the world will make you immortal as pun,” he wrote. “And the impact you left on mommy and your daughters and I left you immortal in our hearts. I don’t care if it sounds corny. Love doesn’t judge. You’re this Titan in my eyes this insurmountable force as an rapper I hear stories about your legendary charisma and the way you inspired people like a king.”
Rivers was 6-years-old when his father died of a heart attack.
