Heavy D Appreciation Thread

It's been exactly 1 year since the overweight lovin' MC died from deep venous thrombosis. (Let this be a lesson to anyone who sits for prolonged periods of time...DON'T!).

The man who gave Puffy a chance, before Bad Boy and all the success. And was the influence for Puffy's shiny-suit era.

The man who gave Biggie his first appearance on an official song.

The man who produced probably Beanie Sigel's greatest song (IMO): Feel It In The Air.

The man who didn't need to curse in his music and still maintained swag greater than most rappers could only dream of.

One of the few rappers to ever get an invite to collab with Michael Jackson.

The man who told Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence's story in the movie 'Life'.

The man who composed the theme music to In Living Color.

One of the first rappers to have acting gigs.

The man with one of the smoothest flows in hip hop.

And correct me if i'm wrong, but he was one of the first to successfully incorporate that reggae twist into his rap music.

IMO, he put out one of the smoothest rap albums when he released "Waterbed Hev". That was my shit back in the day.

That right...it's Hev Diggy.

    Nope no love
    Bitch shut your mouth before I fuck it

    I'm still a rap fan, microphone fiend
    An insider like Russell Crowe, behind the scenes
    You can be the hottest MC, literally leave the mic smoking
    No marketing and promotion
    No 106 & Park, no TRL
    Don't kill the messenger homey but don't expect to sell
    Viacom own MTV, VH1
    BET, five labels until BMG
    Merged with Sony, EMI, Universal and WEA
    Only four labels in the music industry bruh
    All radio controlled by two companies
    Just two rap magazines, read between the lines
    Hip-hop used to be the expression of struggle with rhymes
    Corporate monopolized, only certain shit shines
    Only way to get radio and video and blow
    They control what you say, and the images you show
    CNN owned by AOL, own Time Warner
    Trickle down effect of the New World Order
    And you wonder why "Van Gogh" was killed
    Same reason Dead Prez lost they deal, get real
    I spit for the cabbage, grind with a mission
    And put Capitol Records in missionary positions
    Used to love H.E.R. like Common, but then you get signed
    (Behind the Music) now I just fuck the music from behind

    Magazine writers misprint you, take words out of context
    And got the nerve to wonder why I'm vexed
    When I read the publication
    I was like "Damn, was we in the same conversation?"
    This for the rap conniseurs, magazine critics
    Backpackers, rap stars with bullshit gimmicks
    Fans, even the "Stans," the groupies and label executives
    With corporate cards trickin my budget on coochie
    Video chicks sucking dick between takes
    Hoping to get saved, and thanks for the ass shake
    Like Dave Chappelle in "Half Baked," need a backyotomy
    And some of these thugs is into sodomy
    Large print giveth, fine print taketh away
    Your favorite rapper ain't recoup label take it away
    Have a nigga tempted to take an AK, goin postal
    Rap made me loco, hustle bicoastal
    (Why?) Because the West monopolize
    Same ol' niggas tellin the same ol' lies
    L.A. radio, quick to suck out of town dick
    South support they own create international hits
    Out of regional records, East coast create the buzz
    Music capitol of the world, thought it wasn't when it was
    And somehow manage to screw us
    Call West coast gangster rap whack, then sold it back to us...

    Exactly, thats why Im doing those ¨hip hop in insert year¨threads. Alot of these young cats dont know their history and they think when people say hip hop is dead or has fallen off that the person is just hating on the new generation. Hip hop is extremly different than what it used to be. Niggas was actually talkin about something in their music. Most rhymes had stories within it, thats why music videos were better aswell. Around 97 and 98, the ¨jiggy/brag rap¨ took over and the game hasnt changed since. Now niggas only talk about what they got and most of them niggas be lying. Rap used to be on some uplifting unifed pro black shit. None of this openly racist shit would be happening if hip hop was like it was in the early 90s.....
