Hip Hop's "Overweight Lover" and first big man sex symbol will be laid to rest today (Nov. 18th) at Grace Baptist Church in Mount Vernon. In honor of the "Heavster" I have compiled a bunch of my favorite videos from Heav D below.
May you have a peaceful journey, my brother.
"We Got Our Own Thang"
"Mr Big Stuff"
"Somebody For Me"
"Girls They Love Me"
"Don't Curse" (a.k.a. one of the greatest posse cuts of ALL time!)
"Dem No Worry We" f. Supercat (Lighter!!)
"Big and Broad" f. Supercat and Frankie Paul (no video for this tune, but there should have been)
"Blue Funk" (love this track)
"You Can't See What I Can See" (Classic! Flavor Flav ad libs put it over the top)
"Now That We Found Love" (Heavy's biggest hit!)
"Nuttin' But Love" (This video ran constantly in '94! Shout to Chris Tucker and Talent)
Final U.S. Performance at 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards (I was shocked as everyone else that he closed the show. Who knew it would be the last time we saw Heavy D on television)
