He went pop, but was still well respect among his peers in hip hop. Just listen to the ‘Friends & Respect’ interlude below where everybody from Kool G Rap to Buju Banton to KRS One to Queen Latifah talk with so such admiration about Heavy D even before he passed. Rest In Peace to the overweight lover. Such good memories of doing running man and trying to suck face with girlies to your music.
I don’t want to ruin it, if you haven’t already, you need to totally listen to this for Equal punking me. Elliot Heller a.k.a. DJ Equal is an upstanding gentlemen and a fine DJ from New York City, whenever I talked to him he seems to be flying to Iceland, Dominica or the South Pole to play in a club over there. I have been bugging him for a DJ set, and this is what he sent me. Niceness!
