Still Not a Player

By |

Big Punisher combined his "I'm Not a Player" single with Joe's "Don't Wanna Be a Player" and the result was 1998's "Still Not a Player." The single features Big Pun's claim that "I'm not a player, I just crush a lot" as Joe imitates Earth Wind & Fire's vocal arrangement from "Beijo," and producer Knobody speeds up Brenda Russell's "A Little Bit of Love." "In 1997, my production partner Sean became A&R at Loud [Records], and he played one of my tracks to Big Pun, who was just getting in the game then," Knobody explained. "We recorded Pun's first hit, "Still Not a Player" and that became huge — my biggest record. The album sold 5 million copies."
