I was deeply saddened by the untimely death of one of my favorite rappers of all time, Heavy D. Heavy was a true pioneer of the game and one of the first rappers I remember listening to as a kid. He was also a fave of mine because he was a big boy... but that big boy could dance his ass off!!! Despite the fact he was a tad bit fatter then other rappers, my man Heav was smooth as shit with the ladies and could outdance just about any motherfucker in the game. He opened the doors for future chubby rappers like Notorious BIG and Big Pun, breaking stereotypes as only a true pioneer could. As a young chubster myself, I looked to him for inspiration when it came to getting fresh for a fat guy. Heavy was the fucking man... and its sad to see him go at just 44 years old. Rest in peace Big Guy... the girls will always love you!!!
