In Heavy D’s loving memory Hot97’s own Mister. Cee dedicated his Throwback At Noon mix to the overweight lover. Thinking back on this man’s career, I think I kind of took for granted his multiple talents and contributions to hip-hop. I was just talking to Eskay about his role in the hood classic movie New Jersey Drive and Info’s post reminded my that he produced one of  my favorite Beanie Sigel songs, “Feel It In The Air.” RIP.

Pete Rock Talks To Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg About Heavy D

“It’s hard because it’s still unbelievable. I didn’t expect this to happen this fast, I was just with him a couple of weeks ago,” the producer revealed. “I spent the night; he didn’t even want me to leave. It’s like he didn’t want me to go and I laughed at him … it was crazy.”

“I felt like he was my guider, my person that just put me in place. He was my #1 believer,” Rock said while on the radio. “He was just too good to be true.”
