Cuban Link said that he was putting to bed his issues with Joell Ortiz's "Big Pun Is Back" record after making his initial statement weeks ago; but the former Terror Squad member decided to go into detail as to why he takes exception to Ortiz's song and why he feels the rapper meant disrespect as opposed to paying homage.
"First of all, duke said the new Christopher Lee Rios of rap," Link explained. "That you want to be the new Christopher Lee Rios. You already want to be like my man -- You supposed to be giving love, but you want to be the new. You taking the spot or something. When I don't even feel like you're in the same realm as him -- Second strike, you gonna say in your second verse, '45 will hit you like a heart attack.' For real? You're going to use the word 'heart attack' on my brother's song? You giving him love, but yet you gon' put that word heart attack? He died of a heart attack. That's very disrespectful to the family, if you don't know. If you still confused."
"Third of all, you biggin' up my enemy, you biggin' up our enemy. For all these years, n*ggas already seen me go in on issues about the whole Terror Squad and Joe situation," Link added. "And you used the little funny line where even though it was Pun's like, you want to bring that line out of all the Pun lines that was ever said? 'Don't be like that other dude that was speakin' dumb, tryna snuff Joe?' When Pun was alive, he said that. I was there when he wrote that, so that was a whole different situation. But Pun's not here no more. Twelve years later and you gon' say that, and the new generation you speaking to is going to be like 'Who's the other dude that snuffed Joe?' I know I snuffed Joe. Papoose snuffed Joe. So there's only two dudes that you're talking about."
