Dude stood out (and no I don't mean because of his weight LOL).

"Peaceful journey" (the song) was one of my favs by him. Has a new meaning now....

Another fav was the ragga track he did called "body and mind". Lovely song. Not on youtube though.

I remember him in movies too. "Life" "cider house rules".....

RIP.

.Heavy D Diddy, Wayans Bros. Invited to Ultra-Private Funeral Heavy D will be laid to rest at a very private funeral ceremony in New York next Friday -- and TMZ has learned only a select number of the rapper's famous friends have been invited to attend. We're told Heavy's family has organized a public viewing on Thursday -- and anyone who wants to pay tribute to the hip hop legend is encouraged to show up. But the following day, the burial service is V.I.P. only -- and the invite list only includes close members of Heavy's family and dear friends, such as Diddy, Mary J. Blige, a few of the Wayans brothers ... and others. We're told Eddie F and G-Whiz -- former members of Heavy D and the Boyz -- are also on the invite list. TMZ broke the story, Heavy D passed away on Tuesday at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 44-years-old.

I haven't read the entire thread but has someone posted the story on how Heavy D thought going to a recording session with MJ was actually just somebody playing a television prank on him.

Funeral planned for Heavy D at historic NY church

from YAHOO

MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. (AP) — A private funeral for rap legend Heavy D will be held at a historic black Baptist church in a northern suburb of New York City.

Grace Baptist Church of Mount Vernon announced Friday that the funeral for Heavy D had been scheduled for Nov. 18.

The New York-born rapper died at a Los Angeles hospital Tuesday after collapsing outside his home. He was 44.

Dwight Arrington Myer was the titular member of Heavy D and the Boyz, which had hits with "Now That We Found Love," ''Who's the Man" and "Somebody for Me."

He was one of the genre's top stars in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Grace Baptist Church's website says its congregation was founded by five black women in 1888.

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Hev's verse here still hits home. Still the pinnacle of hip-hop in my eyes…

Aiyo, here's the situation: idiocy

Nonsense, violence, not a good policy

Therefore, we must ignore fightin' and fussin'

Hev is at the door so there'll be no bum-rushin'

Let's get together 'cause we're falling apart

I heard a brother shot another, it broke my heart

I don't understand the difficulty, people

Love your brother, treat him as an equal

They call us animals

I don't agree with them

I'll prove 'em wrong

But right is what you're provin' 'em

Take heed before I lead to what I'm sayin'

Or we'll all be on our knees, prayin'

It is seriously FUCKED UP...beyond belief! That I decided to click on this video, at this exact moment.

I'm a multi-tasker. I just do it! wink

On my muted television screen, I'm seeing Herman Cain...the front runner of the 2012 GOP nomination, candidate. rolleyes

On my computer screen, I'm seeing what SHOULD have been the greatest RAP SONG...of all time! Performed collectively...by the BEST...rap artists of all time! headbang

What SERIOUSLY pisses me off...is knowing that if I walked outside of my home...right this minute and asked the first people that I would come across...WHO do they KNOW? hmmm

More people would say Herman Cain, than all of the people...combined...that could name ONE single rapper...that performed on that song! omfg

Politricks and hip-hop have never gotten along. lol Idiots who think CoCaine, er, Cain, can perform on that song is like saying Clarence Thomas could've been on "Ball of Confusion" with the Temptations. ohgoon

I just finished watching the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards and am very saddened by what they're calling Hip Hop today. I'll blame myself for not even knowing who most of the "performers" were, but I found myself fast-forwarding through most of that garbage.

The best part, in my opinion, and the whole reason why I wanted to watch it was because I had heard that Heavy D performed on it, and I thoroughly enjoyed his performance. But what really got me was that through the whole show the audience was acting like they were going to lose their damned minds over them damned fools jumping around on stage and shouting who-knows-what, but when Heavy D came on with some REAL lyrical content along with actual choreography, they acted like they were sitting on their hands!

I'm officially DONE with what they're calling Hip Hop today, lol. No more need to even TRY and get it, lol. I'm DONE!

These busters don't know SHIT about HIP-HOP or RAP. The only legend they went crazy for was DMX. Generational gaps suck sometimes.
