prayers for the late rapper Heavy D
« on: November 08, 2011, 07:52:25 PM »
Legendary rapper Heavy D (of Heavy D and The Boyz) has passed away today. He was 44 years old.

Quote
The Jamaican-born emcee was leader of Heavy D & The Boyz, a late 1980s Hip Hop group which released five albums, all on the Uptown label. The group included G-Whiz, DJ Eddie F., and the late "Trouble" T. Roy, who helped inspired Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth's "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)." Between 1987 and 1994, Heavy D & The Boyz worked with the likes of Notorious B.I.G., DJ Premier, Marley Marl and longtime affiliate and fellow Mount Vernon native Pete Rock.

He was awesome. Memory Eternal!  :'(

Memory eternal.  :'( His videos were pretty much a constant when I was in high school and college.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

May he rest in the Peace of the Lord and may his Memory be Eternal!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Memory Eternal!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29
