After lots of anticipation, a polished documentary film production of Christopher Rios’ life, better known as late Bronx emcee Big Pun, is finally about to be released. Director Vlad Yudin is unveiling Big Pun: The Legacy, this summer through his Vladar production company. Last week, HipHopDX spoke to Yudin about the film’s making, its direction, and how the legacy of the superstar emcee can be properly evaluated, amidst several posthumous controversies.
Yudin explained his motives for telling the story, as the film began pre-production over two years ago. “Originally, we were all Big Pun fans; that’s what sparked the interest in us doing it. We were running a production company, and we all felt like Big Pun deserved more attention, in the media especially, because we all felt that he’s definitely getting a lot of respect from the Hip Hop community and people always remember him, but he never truly got a lot of attention from the media.”
