Fat Joe has finally given Big Pun's family all the rights to the late rapper's catalog, ending a two-decades-long dispute!
In 2016, Fat Joe and Rios reached a confidential settlement in the legal war. On episode 261 of the Drink Champs podcast, Joey Crack declared that he doesnt have control over anything related to Big Pun and that he makes no money off the deceased rapper, including a documentary on his contribution to the culture. The founder of the Terror Squad said:He passed away, I did something nobody ever did and Im not trying to be disrespectful, but I dont think Puff Daddy gave the rights to Biggie back, I dont think they gave the rights to Tupac back. He continued, So I said, OK, you saying Fat Joes jerking you taken everything. Take everything, its not a problem, everybody got whatever they want, get everything. Fat Joe doesnt own a dollar, no attach. I dont have nothing to do with Big Pun. Thats what yall wanted. Fat Joe discovered Big Pun in the early 90s, placing him on his 1995 album Jealous Ones Envy. He also facilitated his career, signing him to Loud Records, working with him to produce major hits that ultimately led to a GRAMMY nomination, and helping him have the first solo Hip-Hop record by a Latino artist to go platinum. Fat Joe constantly talks about Puns impact on his life and how much he misses him. Posted in
