Whenever someone dies (especially a rapper) people will invariably say "I'll rep his name forever!!" or "I'll treat his kids like my own" or "Whatever his fam needs, I'm just a call away".

In ACTUALITY, it RARELY happens. Fat Joe built his "empire" (pun intended) on the back of Big Pun's brilliance. Pun was (in my opinion) perhaps the most slept on rapper in history. And, after he died, Joe pick up a few more bucks by releasing posthumous material.

It's the "in" thing to do for a rapper to sprinkle their dead homie's name in their songs, but how many of em' REALLY follow thru on the promise to "hold their family fown"??
Ask Afeni Shakur.. Ask the families of Big L, Freaky Tah, and countless other slain artists.

Now, I'm not accusing anybody.. all I know is that Pun's fam is homeless.

Yall all are some f**king retards...

Most of the ones commenting about how she should get a job. She should have done this. She should have done that. f**k YOU....

She has 3 kids to raise. After paying for childcare for those kids she would be left with nothing.

Fat Joe is f**ked up. Not for not helping her out. Honestly f**k her. He should be helping the kids out. I mean dudes made bank off of PUN and STILL f**kING IS. She has gotten 1 f**king check in royalties for $160k. Dude is a d*ck. Maybe she doesn't deserve it. His kids do though.

Big Pun had mad s**t recorded before he died. Fat f**k Joey should be building his legacy more.

its not fat joe's responsibility to take care of another man's family. she shouldnt expect to live the way she lived when pun was alive...many people who are not relatives of celebs are in shelters and i don't see people feeling sorry for them.

160k is not much when you are upside down on a huge mortgage - and with no education, i would imagine, to flip what money you do have.

like she said, legal fees and children to feed. that accounts for 160k QUICK. in case you haven't realized, pun has been dead awhile. leeches prolly all around her too.

cut this woman a break. and joe is a b**ch, i don't care what anyone says. he can throw her a small bone.

She was probably "stuntin" on people with that $160,000.

She probably thought about some s**t like "Damn, I got 160 g's, I should put this down on a house for me and my family...... Nah f**k that what am I talking about, I'ma go get a big diamond Big Pun chain and rock that s**t at the club." lmao
Some ya'll n*ggas can't read for s**t or just real stupid and illiterate ..

All that 160 g's went straight into the house Pun left her, she didn't touch that for herself, it was for her family. She was spending the money as wisely as she could for her family. Joe is a fat washed up piece of s**t that won't support her and Puns family. He is only around today because of Pun. Who knew Joe before Pun? .. Answer that first ..

This man is living of Pun's past life and making a fortune, he can't even help out the mans family ..

f**k Joey, fat clown ..

Deceased rapper Big Pun's widow and three children are living in a New York homeless shelter. Liza Rios and her children have been forced to relocate to the shelter after losing their home to foreclosure.

"We're in a city shelter," Rios said in an interview. "It's been very hard for them [the children] to transition. After Pun passed I didn't receive a lot of money. I received $160,000 from publishing. The house I was paying mortgage [on] was my husband's. He bought the house and it wasn't paid out. The five years I was living there I spent over $120,000 just on mortgage [payments]. Then you [have] the kids, and the food, and the clothes and legal fees...when there's no money coming in, there's just money [going] out."

Rios also talked about her physically and emotionally abusive relationship with her late husband. "It's through the grace of God that I've survived," she said. "I never knew what domestic violence was until I was in it and even when I was in it I still didn't know what was going on. I thought it was just me I didn't know that it was happening with so many women."


As a member of the Terror Squad rap group Pun was responsible for introducing rapper Fat Joe to the public. According to Rios, she and Joe are not on good terms and have no plans to reconcile. "We haven't been on the best of terms in a while. I'm asking to see proof of royalties and so forth. I have not yet seen anything. Pun has made a lot of money for people and continues to make money for them. Pun doesn't get paid when you hear songs on iTunes [or] ringtones. If Pun's not getting a check, his kids are not getting a check."

Pun, born Christopher Rios, died in 2000 from a fatal heart attach. Most famous for his single 'I'm Not A Player,' the rapper weighed almost 700 lbs at the time of his death

This is just crazy. I hate when I hear about this. Why are fathers not taking care of their families and doing what they are supposd too. I mean a shelter. That is just really sad. I am praying for his family and hope some positive things come out of this situation.
