Heavy D: Optimistic and Pivotal
I don’t keep in mind ever listening to something unfavourable being stated about Heavy D. Nor do I keep in mind him being concerned in any controversy and when he returned, for as soon as, the love and approbation that poured out on social media rang as true.
We don’t speak about how pivotal Heavy D was to the world that we reside in. Heavy D was for Uptown Information what Craig Mack/Biggie was for Unhealthy Boy. Heavy D & The Boyz first album bought 300,000 items (loads for 1987) with only 25% radio play.
Uptown Information within the late 80s was THE label. That they had Man, that they had Al B Certain (brought to the label by Heavy D), that they had Ultramagnetic MCs…yeah.
Had Heavy D flopped, who is aware of if that will have been attainable. What I do know wouldn’t have occurred is there would have been no Unhealthy Boy. It was Heavy D who acquired Diddy a gathering with Andre Harrell. And it was Heavy D who put his cousin Pete Rock on.
Take a second. Let that sink in. The position that one particular person can play within the lives of so many. And oh yeah, he rapped.
The primary time I noticed Heav was the “Mr. Big Stuff” video. They was rockin’ that Tommy Hilfiger designed Coca Cola put on — it was hella totally different. I additionally keep in mind after the Giants received the Tremendous Bowl, Heavy D had a set that was so sizzling that WBLS performed it in its entirety.
He had a definite voice and rhymes like:
Sittin’ in my room with my smokin’ jacket on
The fireside is burning and the girly is WARM
Time to make my transfer, so gently I kiss her
Whisper in her ear, and inform her that I miss her
She would possibly attempt to pop that boyfriend junk
However I don’t actually care as a result of I do know he’s a punk
Fairly good imagery, particularly for those who’re a 15 yr previous build up your individual confidence. It’s a testomony to him that rhymes like this nonetheless stick in my head and in addition a testomony to his character all of the love that individuals nonetheless present if you point out the title Heavy D.
