Posh Blog: We Will Miss You Heavy D!
As, we all know by now one of Hip Hops greatest rapper Heavy D born Dwight Myers passed away yesterday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. I was really shocked from his death especially growing up listening to his music.
As I child I thought Heavy D was the coolest and smoothest rappers at that time. I mean what other large man can make a song about their size and make it sound so good and appealing? Cause "[He's] the over weight lover Heavy D."
I remember writing down lyrics to "Mr. Big Stuff" in my spiral notebook just so I can rap when the song came on the local radio station or on BET. Heavy D has so many hits that I love and know that his music will forever live in Hip Hop.
My memorable Heavy D moment has to be his last performance on the BET Hip Hop Awards. I just thought at that time, "wow they have Heavy D performing" and wow'd that he was dancing and rockin' the show like he used to do back in the day. Yesterday I viewed Heavy D's twitter page and noticed that left us with some inspiring words to his followers. See below a few that I found inspirational and check out Heavy D's last performance at the BET Hip Hop Award Show 2011.
“I've learned that everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.”
"When I win is not when I need a pat on the back. It's when I lose and I can hardly stand that I need you to praise me."
"Living one day at a time,enjoying one moment at a time and accepting hardships as the pathway to peace"
Never give up!!!
We Will Forever Miss You Heavy D!
