    This is a serious loss to hip hop and at such a young age. God Bless His Soul and he will live on through mine along with everyone who is danceing to one of his songs, listening to one of the rappers that looked up to him, and hip hop itself. RIP Heavy D

    @real How can you type *silence* and keep moving? Damn I swear you kids these days too disrespectful. “Big Daddy” “Truthful” and “Don’t You Know” just to name a couple. Oh, never heard of these songs? Then you’re too young. Remove yourself from this post.

    @ronnieColeamn just say RIP and keep it moving. Doesn’t matter if YOU don’t think he was a legend, MILLIONS of ppl do. Check the TTs on twitter. EVERYONE showing love. Stop hating on the dead.

    R.I.P. To Heavy D. Very Sad!!!!
    Heavy D birthed Puffy Daddy..aka Diddy…. and gave us Pete Rock.

    Peace, Love, and Condolences to his entire family.

    He was in fact Legendary in Hip Hop Culture.

  • stay ready

    damn… go read his twitter

  • RC

    You just a lame if your hating on the dead like that.

    I swear man.

    These lil bad ass kids that got access to the internet are your little bros, nephews and cousins and shit. Little shits need ass whippins man. They wasnt even born when Heavy was doing his thing. Or they were really small.

    RIP to a real rap Legend.
