I got a hypochondriac flow that get real ill, get nauseous to the beat, I spit sick at will.

Honoring the Legacy of Heavy D

The thing I loved most about Heavy D?

That he seemed to know exactly who he was, even as his evolution over the last 20 years suggests he also knew that he could expand our understanding of who that person is.  In other words, he was an artist in a way so quiet, and so powerful, that we can only fully appreciate it by listening to his amazing body of work in hindsight.

Two of my favorites:

 

Queen Latifah (ft. Treach, Heavy D & KRS-One) – "Rough"

 

Heavy D and the Boyz – "Yes Y'all"

 

R.I.P Dwight Meyers aka Heavy D.

‘Single Ladies': Season Finale Review

‘Single Ladies': Episode 10 Review

A review of episode ten* of VH1's Single Ladies after the jump. You can read all my reviews of the show here.

*I was informed that the premiere movie – what I call episode one – is considered a separate entity from the show. So my reviews are numbered incorrectly. Oops. This is technically episode nine. Why VH1 did it this way is beyond me.
