Cuban Link explains why Joell Ortiz' "Big Pun Back" was disrespectful

Rick Ross and Meek Mill created a trend when they released their single, "Tupac Back." The song was intended to be a tribute to the slain rapper. Tupac Shakur has an incredible legacy that continues to live, fifteen years after his death. Many other rappers began making tribute songs to deceased rappers.

Joell Ortiz decided to write a tribute to Big Pun, the rapper he looks up to the most. On recent lyrics, Joell Ortiz has said he hopes to fill the shoes of Big Pun. Ortiz took things to the next level when he released the "Big Pun Back" single. After the song was released, he received flack from Big Pun's family and Cuban Link.

In response, Joell Ortiz hit back at Big Pun's family and Cuban Link, saying he does not need permission to use anyone's name on HIS records. Cuban Link finally explained things and told Joell Ortiz he has no personal beef with him. He said he does not like the record because he appoints himself to the role Big Pun left at the time of his death. Cuban Link also did not like the song because Ortiz shouted out Terror Squad, who Cuban Link has had issues with for years. Finally, Cuban Link was upset that Joell Ortiz rapped about a heart attack, what ultimately led to Big Pun's death.

Because of this, Cuban Link says the song is disrespectful and he could not endorse it. Cuban Link called those his "three strikes."
