Rapper Heavy D Dies at 44

When  Heavy D and the Boys were at the top of the charts, I was a huge fan.  My favorite song was actually a remake, but it was one of their most successful records because of the injection a quick rhythmic hip hop beat and melodic lyrics.  Of course that was over 20 years ago and hip hop has evolved.

RIP young man and fellow New Yorker.
