14. Big Pun on The Beatnuts' "Off The Books" (1997)
Album: Stone Crazy
Producer: The Beatnuts
Following his standout performances on Fat Joe's "Watch Out" and "Firewater," the rapper formerly known as Big Moon Dawg took no prisoners when he unleashed his super lyrical, breathless flow over this timeless Beatnuts track. Pun showcases the persona that he would become famous for, combining larger-than-life imagery with the will of an enforcer, threats of random violence, pimp talk, and dizzying vocal acrobatics.
