January 4th, 2012 | By Janei

Rest In Peace Heavy D, A True Hip Hop Icon

November 19th, 2011 | By Janei

The hip hop community was shocked to find out that the Overweight Lover of the 90s, Heavy D, 44, died all of a sudden. Hell I was shocked. I damn near caused a scene in my class when I saw the Yahoo news scroll through those dreaded words.

Born Dwight Arrington Myers on May 24 1967, Heavy D was a Jamaican born rapper, actor, singer, and record producer all throughout the 90s. As one of the members of Heavy D & The Boys, he got his first big break in the music scene by being the first group signed to Uptown Records, who later became President; the first time a rapper has ever become a head at a music label. He helped the careers of people such as Mary J. Blige, and even had Diddy as an intern

He is responsible for hits like Now That We Found Love, Nuttin’ But Love, Candy Rain, and personal favorite, Big Daddy.

He recently performed at the BET Hip Hop Awards, and shot his last acting gig on Law & Order.

To this day, I still don’t think people realize and understand how much he was an icon to this game called Rap. As Mister Cee said, he put Yonkers/New Rochelle on the map. He made it cool for the big fellas to have game.

The sun may have set on Heavy D on Novemeber 8th, but his music will forever be instilled in us. Thank You. R.I.P. to you Heavy D. Party with the legends and angels in that big blue sky up there.
