THE BRONX - The son of the late Bronx hip-hop artist Big Pun is carrying on his father’s legacy through music.

Chris Rivers, a 22-year-old Bronx native and the son of legendary hip-hop artist Big Pun, says music is the love of his life - a love that his father taught him.

"I knew my father made it huge and I saw the influence he had, and I wanted to save people with words like I was saved with words," he says.

Rivers has been recording tracks at a studio in Baychester, but admits it wasn't always easy.

"I've been through A to Z, I've been homeless and jumped, I've been involved in things," he says.

But now he is sharing those experiences through his music with thousands of fans all over the world. 

"It's 100 percent for the people."
