Damn this is some sad shit right here. Pun’s TS medallion on sale on Ebay. If this is for real, and it looks authentic, Fat Joe and the remaining members of TS should be ashamed of themselves. According to the auction description, the proceeds of the sale will go to Lisa Rios, Pun’s widow, and his children. I’m posting the whole description below and I took a screenshot because auctions like this have a way of getting shutdown by Ebay if they think it may not be real or it may e a hoax:
PRE-APPROVAL NEEDED BEFORE BIDDING, unapproved bids will be removed, email email@example.com for approval. This item is being auctioned on behalf of the Rios family. You are bidding on the original iced out Terror Squad medallion worn by Big Pun, the first Latin solo rapper to go Platinum. This is not a duplicate, this is the authentic piece that Big Pun paid over $100,000 to have created.
The Medallion is Yellow Gold dipped in White Gold, roughly 598 grams. There are approximately 1728 baguette diamonds, and approximately 173 round diamonds in the medallion. The winning bidder of this auction will travel to New York (flight expenses will be deducted from the total) where they will receive the T.S. medallion personally from Liza Rios.
The sale of this medallion goes to Big Pun’s wife and three children. Since Pun’s untimely passing in 2000, Pun’s wife has struggled to raise their three children as well as make mortgage payments on their home and other expenses. Contrary to what some believe, the family are far from millionaires, Pun’s wife and children do not receive royalty checks for Pun’s first two albums, and only one small royalty check was paid for Pun’s final album. The family’s attempts to get the money due to his children have been unsuccessful to date. By bidding on this piece of Hip Hop history, you are helping the family of a Rap legend, part of the funds will also go towards legal efforts to retrieve any unpaid album sale money the children could receive.
Payment must be made within 30 days of the auction’s close, payable in cash or cashier’s check, or escrow at the buyers expense. To discourage fraudulent bids, prospective buyers must be pre-approved before bidding. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions about the medallion.
