Rest in peace, Heavy D

Sad times in New Jack City today. We lost one of the great ones. While Heavy D may be gone, his music will live on, and you better believe we'll be giving this man a proper tribute at NJC Thursday night.

I can't count the number of times I've been in the record store with DJ Cool It Now when all of the sudden he pops up from the crates smiling wide, waving a freshly picked Heavy D single. Heavy D got around. Not only did he churn out an endless stream of hits during his glorious career, but he also made a cameo appearance on seemingly every New Jack album ever produced. He's even on the Candy Rain single! Does it get any better than that???

Thanks for the memories and the music Heavy D. We promise to keep your legacy alive the one way we know how: by dropping those sweet-sounding platters on the turntables every chance we get.
