R.I.P. Heavy D - The King of Money Makin' Mount V!
R.I.P. Heavy D
Just yesterday I was watching an interview just did with Westwood and Heavy D and was shocked to find out that he has passed away. Our deepest sympathies go to his cousin Pete Rock and all of his family. I have heard a lot of positive things about him over the years, Heavy D was defined by his positive attitude and giving nature, whether it was his Annual "Nothin' But Love" Mount Vernon Cookout, progressive lyrical content, or his putting on other artists into the industry. (My friend YR used to work at Haagen Dazs in Money Makin' Mount V, and told me he was a regular customer, and that he was a really cool guy.)
Heavy D talks to Westwood on Radio 1Xtra about the birth of hip hop, the tragic passing of Troy, performing at the BET awards, working with Jay-Z, producing, touring the UK, Teddy Riley & Pete Rock.
