Everyone had their rendition of Rick Ross and Meek Mill’s Tupac’s Back song. Maino did his version in honor of Notorious B.I.G. called Biggie’s Back and Joell Ortiz did his version in honor of Big Pun called Big Pun’s Back. However, no matter how dope the track everyone’s not a fan!!!
Liza Rios who is Big Pun wife took to her Facebook page to share her outrage over the Big Pun’s Back track!!! She says Joell Ortiz showed disrespect for her, her family, and her late husband despite the song was a tribute to Pun.
She wrote, “A lot of people are asking how I feel bout the Joell Ortiz BIG PUN is Back. Well it was a good attempt on Joell Ortiz part BUT a BIG PUN he will Never be! Found it a bit disrespectful that he would say he the next Christopher Lee Rios to say the least.. With no regard to Me and My family especially My Son PUN’S Only Son which should Be the ONLY one to Claim that BIG PUN is Back.”
“Let me tell u something if Puns tourch is being passed down then it will be to his Son it’s His Birth right Not Joel..,” she continued. “And the fact that he didn’t even ask to begin with to see if I was kool ‘Passing the tourch’ is Disrespectful!! Point blank.. At the end of the Day Only how I feel matters cuz that’s My Husband My Name My Tourch to Pass!!”
Joell Ortiz responded via Twitter to the tirade. Here’s what he had to say,
I wonder if Big Pun did come back what he’d say? But since that’ll never happen, let me know what you think?? Who’s in the right? Did Joell disrespect or is Liza trippin’? You be the judge, leave your comments below!!
