    He did not look like a guy in his early 20s when he was at his peak. Must have been the goatee and glasses. They make us fatsos look mature.

    RIP, overweight lover. I saw the last show of his original boys, before one decided to jump on the ledge of a Market Square Arena overpass over New Jersey Street (of which he fell off and down to the pavement below).

    The TMZ link said he wrote the theme song to In Living Color.

    Great rapper and had a nice string of song. I ran into him maybe 7 years ago near my office and told him I was a fan. We spoke very briefly about his dancer who died (and was the inspiration for the song "They Reminisce Over You" by Pete Rock and CL Smooth). He seemed like a pretty nice and bright guy.

    They Reminisce over You is one of my favorite songs ever.

    My favorite song by Heavy D will always be "Is It Good To You."

    As an avid fan of New Jack Swing, I am ashamed that I never knew Aaron Hall sang on Now That We Found Love.

    RIP to one of my faves.

    I'm sure some of you will laugh at this but I don't think this is amusing: Some people can't tell Heavy D from Ruby Dee.....And it has caused some embarrassment.


    Ruby Dee -- for those of you wondering -- is a celebrated actress and widow of veteran actor Ossie Davis.
