Rest in peace Heavy D. 44 Years young.
Growing up in Brooklyn…Heavy D was a staple in the late 80s and early to mid 90s…the girls on my block would dance and choreograph ALL of his songs!! He was just simply a guaranteed hit maker.
When I think about him, I think about my happy childhood. I think about his connection to Jamaica (my descent) which made me love him even more! Even though he was overweight I always thought he was such a cutie, especially in this video!!
Another one of my favs…
We hear of celebrities passing all the time…but this one affected me differently, as if I had known him personally. I wish I could go and pay my respects to his family….especially his daughter. Feels like I lost a friend, and the world lost someone so special with such a good spirit. This thing here called life is so unexpected and unpredictable. I pray for his soul and may his music, and acting live on forever.
