Some artists don't know when to walk away but Heavy D never wore out his welcome.
Nuttin But Love sold one million records in 1994 and Waterbed Hev went gold in 1997.
But with a focus on the silver screen and production, The Hevster was never really far away.
Roles in the movie New Jersey Drive, Life, Big Trouble, Step Up and most recently Tower Heist with Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller proved that Heavy D transcended genres, and stood the test of time.
