Big Pun’s debut turns 20 today. Fans can celebrate his classic with newly released merch.

In a collaboration with Sony Music’s Certified Classics catalog department and their merchandising arm The Thread Shop, a new bundle for Capital Punishment has been made available. Both divisions have worked with the estate of Big Pun in the design.

His late wife Liza Rios released a formal statement detailing the partnership.

“The Estate of my husband Big Pun and the entire Rios Family thanks all of the fans for their continual support over the past two decades. Entering this new phase and journey, we have come full circle with our partners at Sony Music / Certified to consolidate the Big Pun legacy & brand. We will be reintroducing catalogue music as well as developing new content and merchandising across various platforms and more. It is our great honor and pleasure to continuously preserve Christopher Rios’ memory and artistic integrity for future generations to come.”

The drop includes an album double vinyl set, a t-shirt and long sleeve tee. Originally released on April 28, 1998 Capital Punishment was the one and only son of Tony’s finest hour as he bridged the gap between the dangers of the Bronx streets (“You Ain’t A Killer”), living the high life (“I’m Not A Player”) and flipping one of the most legendary schemes in Rap history (“Twinz (Deep Cover 98)”).

20th Century Women

Mike Mills

Genre: Comedy

Price: $ 14.99

Rental Price: $ 0.99

Release Date: December 25, 2016


With 20th Century Women, acclaimed filmmaker Mike Mills (the Academy Award-winning Beginners) brings us a richly multilayered, funny, heart-stirring celebration of the complexities of women, family, time and the connections we search for our whole lives. It is a film that keeps redefining itself as it goes along, shifting with its characters as they navigate the pivotal summer of 1979. Set in Santa Barbara, the film follows Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening), a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie (newcomer Lucas Jade Zumann, in a breakout performance) at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie’s upbringing — via Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields’ home, and Julie (Elle Fanning), a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor.

Serena Williams Wins French Open For 20th Grand Slam Title

Serena Williams has long established herself as the G.O.A.T. and she continued to pile on to her legacy after taking control of the French Open for her 20th Grand Slam Title.

Via MSN:

The No. 1-seeded Williams took the last six games and added to her 2002 and 2013 championships on the French Open’s red clay. Those go alongside six each from the U.S. Open and Australian Open, and five from Wimbledon.

“When I was a little girl, in California, my father and my mother wanted me to play tennis. And now I’m here, with 20 Grand Slam titles,” Williams said in French. “This is very special for me. I haven’t always played very well here, but I’m really happy to win the 20th here.”

Only two women in the century-plus history of Grand Slam tennis have won more major titles than the 33-year-old American: Margaret Smith Court with 24, and Steffi Graf with 22.

Williams also stretched her Grand Slam winning streak to 21 matches, following titles at the U.S. Open last September and Australian Open in January. She is the first woman since Jennifer Capriati in 2001 to win the Australian Open and French Open back-to-back and will head to the grass courts of Wimbledon this month with a chance to extend a bid to do just about the only thing she hasn’t accomplished: win a calendar-year Grand Slam.

Williams closed the first game with a 120 mph (194 kph) ace. As if to prove her timing on returns was just fine, too, she pounded a 104 mph (167 kph) serve with a cross-court forehand so powerful and precise that Safarova didn’t bother to step toward the ball, watching the winner sail by for a break that made it 3-1 on the way to an simple first set.

Flip through the gallery below to see Serena’s victory lap.
