A Gent Remembered: Heavy D

Dwight Arrington Myers - 'Heavy D' (May 24, 1967–November 8, 2011)

TFG mourns the loss of rapper Heavy D. I grew up on Hip-Hop, and came of age during what I believe was the golden age of Hip-Hop.  Heavy D, representing ‘Money Earnin’ Mount Vernon’, figured prominently during that era.  He was a true Hip-Hop pioneer, and his contributions to the genre are often underappreciated.

Heavy D, Forgotten Gent wishes you a peaceful journey.
