Artist: Heavy D —
The late Heavy D was everything that you would want in an entertainer. Charismatic, enduring, a talented songwriter, and a pretty smooth dancer to boot, the Mount Vernon, NY rapper was a treasure on M-I-C and in the Hip-Hop culture. Together with rap cohorts G-Whiz, "Trouble" T. Roy, and Eddie F, Heavy D and The Boyz maintained a sizable fan base throughout the jiggy-era of the 1990s.
In 2008, the Mandeville, Jamaica-born rapper decided to expose the world to his irie side with the Reggae album Vibes that came out on December of that year. Featuring no raps from the Overweight Lover MC, Hev managed to maintain him image of being the heavyset man who constantly charms the ladies with clever wordplay. His song, "Long Distance Girlfriend," was a standout cut from the album giving Hip-Hop that old thang back that is sorely missed these days.
