Rest in Peace to the legendary Heavy D

 

 

This is a special dedication to Heavy D. This is one of the my most memorable song and video from the legendary MC (link below). I remember watching this video as it would play regularly on Rap City, back when Hip-Hop on “TV” really inspired and was really about expression and the artform. I just always thought that video was so raw and rugged. The rhyme was dope, the hook was classic with Flava Flav doing his thing. That’s Hip-Hop to me. Heavy D always had a dope flow, and was versatile without being “watered down”, which is a rare combo. Many people including myself thought he disappeared from the scene. However, I learned that he produced many dope tracks doing his behind the scenes thing. I will miss him and to him I pay homage.

RIP Heavy D

Love is love

NDL: United We Stand The past few weeks you have gotten to know Napoleon Da Legend via his lyrics, his style, and his clean-cut music videos.

Ther … Read More
