R.I.P. Heavy D

1967 – 2011

The self-proclaimed ‘overweight lover’ Heavy D passed away due to respiratory issues yesterday.  The rapper/actor, whose real name was Dwight Arrington Myers, was probably best known for his work with the Boyz in the late 80’s, including my personal favorite, Big Tyme — a tape I played until it broke back in 1989 — but he continued to have roles in movies and television shows as well as produce music up until the time of his death.
