Last week the Hip Hop community was rocked by the sudden loss of "the over weight lover" Heavy D. His loss was probably the first time many young Hip Hop fans ever heard of Heavy D but for many of us older Hip Hop fans it was a shock to hear of his loss. The truth is we took Heavy D, as most of our legends and pioneers in Hip Hop, for granted. Heavy D represented a light hearted side of Hip Hop that is definitely missing now. I don't mean light hearted as in making pop music for the sake of cross over success but a truthful real music that Heavy D and other artist at the time made that gained them as much respect as any gangsta rapper at the time. Heavy D went on to be a actor and executive while still making music. It's unfortunate that it takes a loss for us to realize the contribution by someone like Heavy D.
