Big Pun and Fat Joe performing “Twins” back in 1998 in Miami. Too Dope!!! Godfree was holding out on this video from me! Lol @ the “dead in the middle of Little Italy” line – its like barely audible, yet you know exactly when it drops – classic! Spotted over at RR who spotted it via MissInfo who got it from Godfree from Gamertag Radio
“This show at The Temple nightclub was called â€œSouth Bronx Invades South Beachâ€ created by DJ Khaled back in March 6, 1998. I was one of the promoters, thats why how I managed to bring my video camera to the club at that time. On this night, the lineup featuring Big Pun, Fat Joe, Cuban Link, DJ Tony Touch & also DJ Craze (the only solo DJ in history to claim the World DMC Champion trophy 3 times consecutively.) In this clip, Fat Joe performs some classic joints like â€œFlow Joeâ€, â€œI Shot Yaâ€ and my favorite â€œTwins Deep Coverâ€ with Big Pun. This was before Pun’s 1st album and you can hear the crowd go crazy when he comes out.”
Also, here are more tidbits in regards to the video courtesy of Godfree…
– T.C. Islam (Afrika Bambaataa’s son) was the host & The Universal Zulu Nation and were the security for the show. You’ll see them rocking orange shirts.
– Before DJ Khaled dropped â€œWe The Best,â€ this was the first & only time I had seen Khaled doing turntables tricks in front of a crowd. Maybe it was because DJ Craze was there.. not sure.
– Tony Touch had long hair.
– DJ Khaled was on a pirate station at that time before joining 99 Jamz. The station was called Mixx 96 FM.
– Big Pun took breaks throughout the show by sitting down off-stage between songs.
