Dwight "Heavy D" Myers
May 24, 1967- November 8, 2011

Hearts around the world ache as the news of Heavy D passing has struck us.  I still can't believe it.  All that I keep seeing people say on twitter and other sites is "what a good guy he was" and how "he always wore that smile".  And this does not surprise me, because you could tell that he had a sincere heart and beautiful spirit.

What I love the most about him is that he added his own unique flavor to Hip-Hop.  From his stage presence, to the way he rapped to his impeccable dance moves... No one could touch my man!  He made music that the youngins could listen to all the way up to the adults.  Dwight Arrington Myers will be missed.  May you rest in peace, my brotha!


What is your favorite Heavy D joint?

This was my song in grade school, I loved singing the chorus!
