16. The Beatnuts f/ Big Pun “Off The Books” (1997)
Murderer: Big Pun
Album: Stone Crazy Label: Relativity Records Producer: The Beatnuts Cold Cases: Fat Joe's "John Blaze"
The almost cartoon-like, frantic pace of this beat made a perfect playground for Big Pun to showcase his rapid-fire delivery and cemented his place as one of the best to ever do it. Although we love this track, it was really just another day in the life for Pun. As Fat Joe recently explained to us, "Pun would lure in other rappers like he was their friend and then destroy them on records. That was his job in life." Guess the Beatnuts were just another one of his victims.
