Liza Rios, the widow of the late Big Pun, says that rumors the Bronx, New York rapper struck Jay Z around the head with a bottle during an alleged altercation between Roc-A-Fella and Terror Squad camps at a nightclub are simply not true.
The rumor resurfaced recently when Noreaga appeared on Taxstone’s “Tax Season” podcast.
“A situation happened at a club night. Both camps were there, Terror Squad camp and Jay Z’s camp, and there was an altercation between the camps. [A] guy that was affiliated it was an altercation between them. After that situation happened, it was another show date and Jay Z was also performing. Pun knew that Jay Z was there [and] because of the altercation between their camps, he stepped up to Jay Z to see if there was any beef or any problems. As fast as they went in, they came out. Squashed any problems and it’s all good.”
“So this story about Pun hitting him with a bottle, I don’t know where it came from, I don’t why they keep bringing it up or keeping it alive because the truth was that it wasn’t the truth. If it was true, I’d gladly say, ‘Yeah, he hit him over the head with a bottle’ that’s not the case… I would appreciate if whoever keeps telling this story, that they lay it to rest because it’s not true. It never happened, it never happened, it never happened.”
