A Fan Puts Up His Own Big Pun Street Sign

Shane Rossi, a Bronx resident and Big Pun fan, mounted his own Big Pun Place sign on the corner of 163 St. and Rogers Pl. The Intersection is where Pun’s family and fans attempted to have renamed numerous of times after the late MC. Attempts were denied by Bronx Community Board 2 because the rapper’s music was thought to be “too violent” and “referenced drugs.”

The above video footage shows Rossi putting up the sign last Friday.
