Encyclopedia > The Terror Squad

The Terror Squad is a latin rap crew from The Bronx, New York that is best known for its members Big Pun and Fat Joe. The roster includes Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Triple Seis, Prospect, DJ Khaled, and Tony Sunshine. Cuban Link and Prospect, friends of the now-deceased Big Pun, were original members of the group, but left over problems with Fat Joe.
