Former Terror Squad members Cuban Link and Tony Sunshine are speaking out publicly about their take on the song "Big Pun's Back" by Joell Ortiz.
Originally meant as a tribute to Joell's hero Big Pun, the song has become controversial as now Pun's widow Liza Rios, as well as Cuban and Tony have spoken out against it.
"Only a few are chosen to touch certain things. And at the end of the day, I don't feel that man [Ortiz] was chosen to do it," Cuban said. "He didn't go through the right ways to touch that -- that's all. It's no problem where there's gonna be any extra sh*t. It [just] don't sit right with me. Pun was bigger than our brother. So we just get a little tight when n*ggas do certain things," he explained. "But I know they're showing love. I gotta talk to that brother. I was always a fans of his because he's got some fire. It's just that's a little personal situation. We'll leave it at that."
Tony pretty much echoed Cuban's statements.
"I'm just glad to see somebody is trying to keep his name alive and rep his name, but it's just certain things you don't do. You gotta come to the family of that man before you do certain things," Tony said.
On the music front Cuban, Tony and former State Property member Peedi Crakk announced a Bronx/Philly connection with their new group.
"Right now we're like the underdogs that n*ggas always rooted for," Peedi said. "Everybody knows how talented Tony is, but he didn't get the fair shot. Same thing with me -- n*ggas know about Peedi Crakk... same with Link. Not that we got a point to prove, but it's just that n*ggas still want theirs."
We'll keep you posted once the name of the group is revealed and when new material is expected to drop.
