Video – “Big Pun: The Legacy” Trailer

08.10.09 8 years ago 7 Comments

The recent dust-up between Joe or Liza Rios has taken attention away from Christopher Rios and the mark he managed to leave behind in only five years of work.

With that in mind, focus your attention above @ the official trailer of the upcoming, Vlad Yudin-directed documentary, releasing on 9.15.09. There’s also a “Best Of Big Pun” OST, “music inspired by the flim,” dropping as well on Loud/Columbia/Legacy.

Below is info lifted from the press release…

In loving tribute to Pun – as the 10th anniversary of his death approaches next year – filmmaker Vlad Yudin has directed a 93-minute documentary feature on his life, Big Pun: The Legacy. The Vladar Company with Czar Productions will release the DVD of the film on September 15th, distributed by Vivendi Universal (a division of the Universal Music Group, UMG) and Polychrome Pictures.

In the DVD, first-time director Yudin (who also wrote a liner notes essay for the CD) pays homage to one of the most influential rap voices of the ’90s, with a non-stop program of never-before-seen concert footage and video that traces Pun’s rise to stardom. There are interviews with the fellow hip-hop stars who knew him best – Snoop Dogg, Jim Jones, Swizz Beats, DMX, Method Man, Raekwon, Redman, XZIBIT, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Ghostface Killah, Prodigy, Styles P., B Real, Fredro Starr, DJ Enough, Sticky Fingaz, Chuck D, Jae Millz, Big Tigger, and many others. There are also interviews with Pun’s widow Liza Rios and the estate.

In addition to a never-before-released track by Pun, “BX NI**AZ,” the DVD of The Legacy also contains a number of bonus features. These include an exclusive interview with Big Pun himself; deleted scenes (with XZIBIT, Raekwon, and Snoop Dog); outtakes (with Swizz Beats, Method Man and Red Man, Jim Jones, and Keith Murray); and a “Making of the Film” segment (featuring interviews with director Yudin, producer Ed Mejia, Jose Aguilar and cinematographer Vitaly Acosta).
