Default Big Pun - Endangered Species

Endangered Species is a compilation of unreleased tracks, guest appearances, and greatest hits by the late rapper Big Pun, released in 2001 following his death in February 2000. The proceeds from the album were to be given to Pun's widow, Liza Rios, and their three children, but despite reaching a peak chart position of #7, the album only went gold. Partly because the album mainly consist of music previously released, it was a decline in sales from his previous two which both sold more than 1 million copies. Liza Rios also claims to have only received a small royalty check from the sales of Endangered Species, and in response, auctioned off her husband's Terror Squad medallion in July 2005.

The single from the album was "How We Roll", featuring R&B singer Ashanti on the chorus. Fellow rapper and close friend Fat Joe, who was also the compilation's executive producer, revealed in the liner notes of the album that the title chosen for the compilation was in fact the original title for 2000's Yeeeah Baby. In a move that is somewhat unusual for many hip hop releases, all of Pun's lyrics were included in the booklet of the disc, partly due to the limited amount of promotional tools available to the label, and partly because of a desire to emphasize Pun's technique as a lyricist.

Fifteen year anniversary today. I appreciate getting the songs that were left on the cutting room floor from the Capital Punishment and Yeah Baby sessions. My World is the best of all the new joints. Audiophiles will want to add this one to their list of subwoofer straining classics such as Gripping the Grain, Throw It Up and Late Night Tip.

this was put together very well, a great tribute to Pun. I like it better than Yeah Baby, whose second half was very questionable

I've never heard this album and I'm gonna have to check it out on Youtube. I watched his I'm Not A Player video yesterday and I was surprised to see r&b group The Ojays in it LOL. I think he put them in the video because he was scared they were gonna sue him for sampling their song Darlin Darlin Baby LOL.

The mix is different on "Off The Books" on this compilation compared to the version on The Beatnuts album. I like them both.
