    Life is short for real , my message to people is do the things you like ( try to be good ) keep away from people that hold you back and cause you pain and strife .

    strange how in the interview they talk about the CLASSIC song
    "Pete Rock & C. L. Smooth "They Reminisce Over You"

    MAYBE THE LAST INTERVIEW IN ENGLAND


    damn i clicked on this link thinking Mokele Mbembe was posting HEADY D`s new album

    Maybe but Heavy D was 44 and not that big

    His last ever tweet... "Be inspired". Trending hard right now.

    Be inspired... Those are some last words eh? That's how to make a proper exit and leave earth in style

    I read that he has a part in that new Eddie Murphy/ Ben Stiller flick 'Tower Heist'.

    Has anyone seen that yet? I hear it's NOT awful.

    What?!? For real?! Just yesterday I was watching a youtube clip where he was talking about how he hooked up with MJ to do that song 'Jam'. Only 44 years old as well.

    Way too much loss/bad news in the past few years.

    RIP.....

    Ditto Mokele.

    Just saw him in Tower Heist on Sunday. I saw him on the screen and told my husband "hey, that's Heavy D".

    You don't miss people till they're gone.

    Damn. RIP.

    rest in peace


    like some of the alltime great rappers.....Heavy happened to be of Jamaican background...think he was born in JA. One of the first rappers to openly embrace and promote his Jamaican heritage


    if you haven't checked them out yet...... he had some good collabos with dancehall artists..


    "Big and Ready" featuring Frankie Paul and Supercat


    and "Dem No Worry We" featuring Supercat...



    rest in peace to the Heavster

    I love the section at the end where MJ -one is teaching MJ -two how to dance, it's so cute.

    Oooh my Queendom for simpler times.

    I'm still sad over this because other than growing up on his music, he always just seemed to be a really good likeable dude who very rarely if ever, had problems with anyone. My mum even used to like his music and she wasn't into hip hop at all.

    Apparently he died of a heart attack, which I suspected it was anyway. We need to watch our health, seriously.

    I didn't know he performed at the MJ tribute concert in Cardiff recently.

    Oh man, Heavy D. Remember The Boys? His two sidekicks who always did the running man and had stripped suits on? I remember one of them fell off stage and died... Brings back memories.

    We really need to watch our health for real.

    Yeah D, a lot of hip hop cats have Jamaican roots.

    My all time favorite Heavy D joint even though it was a collabo:

    Yes Brooklyn, I have a hazy recollection of one his 'boyz' dying in this fashion. God it's amazing the amount of memories which lie dormant til someone brings it up. I know Heavy was cut up about that incident.

    @Prince H, innit weird how you can be performing a tribute to someone else's passing, only to check out yourself a month later. *shudders*

    Very sad news, but like Heavy said in the interview, out of loss you can always find blessings. One of the things I loved about Heavy is he could bust a move:

    Yeah...Heavy was one of them good guys...with such self depreciating humour..even when things went slow music wise he still kept busy didn't turn to drugs or badness like some did..and for a big dude he sure could move..we burst some crazy moves on those tunes..WE GOT OUR OWN THANG!!

    Let's get real here nuff Celebrity deaths were self fulfilling prophecies..many did self harm or had some issues that fame couldn't control but just made worse..due to money and power

    I think probably Aliyah,GURU and Heavy's death did really resonate in people's conscience they were good peoples..positive...not saying the rest weren't but you get my drift..

    Only just found out Troy didn't die on Stage..after all..

    Life ay!!.only a day after wishing Smoking Joe..a peaceful journey..

    Damn we lost enough young black youths and celebs this past decade..

    fellas

    start taking your health seriously


    modify what you eat and drink *

    set up a REALISTIC sustainable exercise routine, and follow it


    * lot of what we traditionally eat and how it's prepared, is JUST not healthy or meant to be eaten EVERY day...



    When Nate Dogg passed, we all made the comments about his age and how the cause of death didn't match...now we are saying the same things with Heavy. Not so much age as it is lifestyle and health choices.

    just read that Erick Sermon from EPMD suffered a massive heart attack

    he's alive though

    that was a good Heavy record... my favorite Heavy song was "You Can't See"

    remember it dropping and not knowing who the rapper was but knowing that it was a hard record..


    -----------------------------------------

    jett


    only one of the Fat Boys is dead. one, kool rock ski is actually some kind of personal trainer now...and looks NOTHING like he did when he was in the group.... other one prince markie d produces music..

    think they both had health scares though



    I remember watching Heavy's first appearance on Soul Train..and how Don Cornelius tried to play Heavy out....confusing him with markie dee of the fat boyz...
