  15. Juan Says:

    I lived there in New York and know what’s up there until 2008. New York Brangs it and so did Big Pun.
    His music was classic was for real. Big Pun put words together beautifully. New York is very stressful and Negativity there makes you spit out poetically like that trust me. Its the real feelings you feel and you just bring it from the heart. Rest In Pease Big Pun and may you smile from the Heavens. Juancho.
