Eulogizing is NEVER the way I ever wanted to introduce a Heavy D song.
Yesterday afternoon, Dwight Arrington Meyers passed away in L.A. of an apparent heart attack.
Let’s take this time to appreciate the music he’s given us, shaping much of ’90s Rap, New Jack Swing, R&B, & Reggae:
@ :05 This already looked fun
@ :07 Is that Talent? ‘TIS
@ :19 Is that Cynthia Bailey? ‘TIS
@ :20 Look at how pretty they are. Don’t see that complexion in videos or on TV unless it’s a male nowaydays…
@:28 CHRIS TUCKER YOU WERE SKINNY
@:33 THAT HOOP EARRING IS TALKING TO ME BRO
@ 1:05 ::GOING SUPER HARD RIGHT NOW:: #PardonMe
@ 2:17 Everyone’s dressed. Point still taken that they’re partying.
@ 2:25 She
married had Diddy’s children, no? #KimPorter”Modelling”Sighting
@ 2:40 This Negro looked an awful lot like Bobby Brown. WONDER IF HE KNOWS
@ 2:47 NO CURRENT RAPPER COULD DACNE LIKE THAT NOW. NONE
@4:30 Classily put. Almost agree with that plan because of it’s delivery.

This too, is a classic:
@ :10 I, too, now need a skirt made out of CDs.
@ 1:10 Hello Al B. Sure! ‘s UNIBROW
@ 2:43 Want that outfit too.
@ 2:55 TWINKLETOES
@ 3:45 Hay look, an entire rap song where, in regards to women, I wasn’t:
-Disgarded because of complexion
-Directed to a pole
This was awesome. Did I mention Heavy is Jamaican? Like from Jamaica?
That, indeed was a standalone point.
No one can forget this:
He was so influential, so innovative. You cannot have a viable Hip Hop conversation without mentioning this man. Though it
seems is trite & overused to say that today’s music sucks in comparison, it’s not entirely false. The spirit, passion, and substance is lacking. It’s terribly sad when this happens, because this art then truly becomes history.
YOUNG MONEY, MMG , AND WHOMEVER ELSE IS OUT NOW, FALL IN LINE.
