Big Pun will always be remembered as one of Hip Hop's most lyrical emcees and this past Friday marked what would have been his 41st birthday. Many Hip Hop fans tweeted in remembrance of the late Bronx rapper who passed away back in 2000, and longtime Terror Squad collaborator and close friend Fat Joe was not going to let Pun's birthday go by without honoring him in some way.

Joe took to Twitter on Friday, November 9th to give a message to his late acquaintance and he even got around to sharing some classic photos of the two from over the years. Pun and Joe were certainly inseparable and became the best of friends, which made for their amazing lyrical cohesion when they stepped in the booth together.
