iTunes Review

Heavy D’s legacy is one of unified opposites. He made it possible to be overweight and a sex symbol; a street rapper and also a pop star; a celebrity but also a beacon of a local community. Above all, he was authentic and never lost the respect of the hip-hop establishment. He made great dance songs (“Now That We Found Love”), rap for roughnecks (“Black Coffee”), and gentle R&B (“Don’t You Know”)—and it all worked, because his public knew he wasn’t selling out for the industry but was instead attuned to the diverse tastes of his audience.

Great Album

I feel like part of my youth died with him. R.I.P Heavy D. You'll always be loved here.

A Legend!

Heavy, you will be missed. My heart goes out to your family. You paved the way for so many artists. You were the rapper that even my parents loved. I had to close the bedroom door to listen to Eazy E, but YOU I was allowed to blast. I love you. Rest with the angels.

He allowed you to love, laugh and be in the same room with him as he told you a story.

I love my Black Coffee hit for he knows how to make a black woman feel special. This is one sexy brother that got it going on. He is not Heavy in stature any more but heavily etched in my mind,heart, and talent in my book.
