Dammit. "Now That We Found Love" was one of my go-to jams back in high school in the early 90's.

RIP to a guy who busted through some hip-hip stereotypes.

=( =( =(

Not much more to say than that. Child of the 80s and 90s, Heavy D was the ish. In particular I thought his verse on Michael Jackson's "Jam" was super duper underrated. He will be missed in my household.
