Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

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.
