"Be Inspired" – Goodbye Heavy D

Sad news for music and for the fans as Dwight Arrington Myers aka Heavy D has passed at the age of 44. His last tweet was “Be Inspired” – as perfect a farewell as anything else he could’ve left us with.

In the summer of 1991, I was a fourteen-year-old punk with my hat turned back and a Sony boombox the size of VW Bus that came with me everywhere.  Go ask my camp counselor Dave Stillman.  And while we bumped KLF, Public Enemy, Tribe and Big Daddy Kane a lot that summer, nothing got played as much as Heavy D & the Boyz.

Hit up Rolling Stone for the first obit post (there will be more tomorrow) and check out the Big Man in his prime below…

RIP, big guy.
