R.I.P. Heavy D

I was so sad to hear of the passing of Heavy D last week.  His music was a BIG part of my high school/college years.  It wasn't just that I loved his stuff, but also that I was dating a guy who kinda thought he was/ wanted to be Heavy D.

There was a nice piece on NPR about Heavy D's influence on hip hop.

My favorite song was Somebody for Me:

And finally, his recent performance on the BET Awards. He looked just as good as he did 20+ years ago:
