With both Hex One and 5th Element being huge fans of Big Pun, Deep Cover ’14 was born out of admiration, celebration, and as a tribute to his life and musical impact. In 2007 as part of his first mixtape, 5th Element remixed the song Twinz adding his own beat to the classic song. It seemed only right for Hex to do the same in some way by instead “remixing” the lyrics. He takes on the task of using not only the same rhyme scheme but also the same rhymes but with completely different words! The result is a refreshing new take on a lyrical benchmark set by one of the illest to ever do it. R.I.P. Christopher Lee Rios AKA Big Pun.
Lyrics written and performed by Hex One
Beat Produced by 5th Element
