HomageCollage: Big Pun, “Yeeeah Baby!”

🔊💜Today, April 4, 2000, Big Pun released his final studio album “Yeeeah Baby.” The album peaked at no. 3 on the US Billboard 200 on April 21, 2000, and it spawned the posthumous, Donnell Jones collaborative single ‘Its so Hard.’ The song, a production by Younglord, co-producer of 112’s ‘Be With You,’ peaked at no. 75 on the Hot 100. Though Big Pun passed away two months prior to the release of “Yeeeah Baby,” this album further engraves his soul in hip-hop music. The album’s sales earned Big Pun a posthumous platinum plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America.
