Just got some sad news via Facebook today.  Hip Hop pioneer and music legend Heavy D passed away.  Heavy D ( and the Boyz ) were very influential to many of us who grew up in with 80s Hip Hop.  Heavy Ds "super clean" rap lyrics, made him an MTV and radio sensation.  Even my Mom had no opposition to "Now That We Found Love"



Here is Tarik's pick "The Overweight Lover Is In The House"


Heavy D dropped a new Reggae album in 2009 called VIBES, and was due to release LOVE OPUS this year.  I hope we hear what was recorded for that project.

RIP Heavy D.
