Former Terror Squad members Cuban Link and Tony Sunshine have come forward to speak on the controversy surrounding Joell Ortiz’s “Big Pun’s Back” tribute record.
Cuban Link said Ortiz should have received a proper blessing from Pun’s close friends.
“Only a few are chosen to touch certain things,” Cuban Link said in an interview. “And at the end of the day, I don’t feel that man was chosen to do it. He didn’t go through the right ways to touch that. That’s all. I mean, it’s no problems where there’s going to be extra sh*t. It’s just, it doesn’t sit right with me. But at the end of the day, it is what it is. It’s music. Pun was bigger than just our brother at the end of the day. So we just get a little tight when n*ggas do certain things but at the end of the day, I know they’re showing love. But I know the business too. I know n*ggas use that business sh*t sometimes to bring it back on themselves and put themselves on a higher level. I gotta talk to that brother because at the end of the day, I was a fan of his sh*t too — but it’s a little personal situation. We’ll leave it at that.”
