Following Big Punisher’s passing last month, some of the rapper’s friends and colleagues are making sure his memory lives on in a new video.Fat Joe, the Terror Squad, Lil’ Kim, Mobb Deep, Funkmaster Flex, and the Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon were among the hip-hop luminaries who recently came out in New York to film cameo appearances for “It’s So Hard,” the first video from Pun’s upcoming posthumous album, “Yeeeah Baby.” M.O.P., Soul For Real, and DJ Red Alert also filmed cameos for the video, and Donell Jones (who appears on the track with Pun) will turn up in the clip as well. So far, video director Chris Robinson has captured New York’s Tower Records and a Bronx laundomat near a memorial mural painted in the rapper’s memory. He next plans to shoot footage in Los Angeles and Miami, including a cameo by Jennifer Lopez. While a release date has yet to be confirmed for the video, Big Pun’s album “Yeeeah Baby” is due to hit stores on April 4. “It’s So Hard”
is slated to be released by Loud Records as a vinyl 12″ on March 14.
