Remembering The Life Of Heavy D [Photos + Video]


Tribute To The Legendary Heavy D

Some of you out there may not know much about Heavy D and his impact on hip-hop.

Dwight Arrington Myers was born in Jamaica, grew up in Mount Vernon, New York and took the hip-hop world by storm when his group Heavy D & The Boyz dropped “The Overweight Lover’s In The House” and flipped the classic hit “Mr. Big Stuff” in 1987.

Not only did he make light of his size but his music was fun without being soft. The big man was dancing, flowing, and he was able to get female fans minus the hate from the fellas.
