Rapper Fat Joe penned a letter to his long-deceased comrade, Big Punisher. The late Bronx rapper would've turned 40 this week, and Joe wrote his feelings on his fallen friend expressing his love and gratitude for Pun's contributions to his life.
Happy Birthday my brother! I wish you were here. We would have done it real big if you was here. I know we getting older now. We would have done it big with our families. The world is missing you. Still to this day, I haven't heard a better rapper yet. God bless you. When the world lost you, they lost an incredible spirit, an angel. Besides just being a dope rapper, you were always the best father, and you were always the best friend a person could have. Your loyalty and just being a sincere good person is really, really missed. Right now you probably would have had like 20 platinum album. To this day, they couldn't catch your flow. I'm still trying to be better than you, but figured out I can't be better than you yet. God Bless you man and till we meet again. You know we're going to see each other again. Your twin, Joe Crack."
